Historic Restoration


Building Area:


23,596 gsf


Restoration of this historic 1908 Byzantine-influenced Sanctuary, designed by Emile Weil, was accomplished in two phases.  Phase One included the restoration and waterproofing of the building envelope including re-roofing, 100% tuck-pointing of the  load bearing masonry, restoration of terra-cotta and restoration of all doors and window framing.  In Phase Two, the interior was restored, including removal of an acoustical tile ceiling and multiple layers of paint which obscured ornate detail.  Plaster detail was reinforced and restored.

The project was designed in conformance with National Park Service and New Orleans Historic District Landmark Commission guidelines.
