BEING PART OF NEW YORK'S HISTORY

Caoba's long-standing relationship with outstanding architects, interior designers and the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) in NYC goes hand in hand with our capability to authentically reproduce historical designs for landmark structures. Our work with the architects of the following iconic landmark restorations exemplifies what Design Dictated Manufacturing® means to us.

As a nationally recognized Historical Reproduction specialist and a professional member of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Arts, we take great pride in meeting the needs of any architects' vision.

NY and our Double-Hung Windows 

You could call the Double-Hung Window a trademark style window of New York. Double-Hung Windows have two operating sashes; an outer upper sash and an inner lower sash. Both operate by sliding up and down a track and allow for fantastic ventilation. Both sashes can be operated either via a pneumatic balance system, which is concealed to provide a clean appearance without protruding unsightly vinyl tracks, or they can be operated via traditional weights and chains for an authentic replication. Narrow Profile styles and custom shapes to include round top, arched, and curved glass units can be crafted to your specifications. Double-Hung Windows are available in our complete series of products and can be stacked and mulled with other window and door types in various configurations.
 
Our ability to authentically replicate historical styles also meets the high standards of NYC's Landmarks Preservation Comission (LPC). This institution is the largest municipal preservation agency in the nation. It is responsible for protecting New York City's architecturally, historically, and culturally significant buildings and sites by granting them landmark or historic district status, and regulating them once they're designated. It is thanks to the LPC that we are able to supply our products in NYC.

So with no further ado, let us present to you some of our highlight projects in NYC.

The Beekman

Meet The Beekman, one of Manhattan’s first skyscrapers and an early example of the use of brick and terra cotta for an office building. Built in 1883, it is located in the iconic area of Manhattan’s downtown and it is known as one of New York’s last hidden architectural treasures. The core element of this magnificent landmark building is its awe-inspiring nine-story Victorian atrium and its one of a kind pyramidal skylight.  The building was restored to bring back its elegant grandness and converted into The Beekman, a Thompson Hotel. The Hotel is now listed as one of the best new hotels in the world.

The restoration of the building was lead by Gerner Kronick + Valcarcel, Architects. The window replacement consultant for this building was Israel Berger + Associates. and the owner of the project was GFI Capital.

4-8 East 94th Street, Carnegie Hill.

This remarkable project located in Carnegie Hill comprises the horizontal and vertical expansion of two existing buildings at 4-8 East 94th Street in the Upper East Side Historic District. The eastern building (8 E. 94th St) was a single-family residence. The western building (4 E. 94th St) was built as a seven-story office building, significantly taller than what is allowable by current zoning. Its first floor was built full to the rear lot line. The purpose of this reversion to residential use of the building was the creation of a uniform looking mansion-like building. The architect for this project was Stephen Byrns from BKSK, a lifelong student of architectural history and someone who actively seeks to understand how both contemporary and traditional buildings come to be, how people use them, and the effects that they have socially and ecologically. This project was awarded the Carnegie Hill Neighborhood Enrichment Award.

For the completion of this building Caoba Doors supplied BKSK with historically accurate replications of the trademark style windows and doors of NY's architecture of the early 20's and 30's.

443 Greenwich Street

Originally built in 1884 as a book bindery, CetraRuddy Architects took on the job of restoring and adapting 443 Greenwich into 53 unique und luxurious residences. The resulting design of this project, inspired by the original architectural details and the grand proportions of the existing structure, truly celebrates and brings back to life the original construction. And at the same time it introduces distinctive, crafted details that complement modern materials and distinguish its residential adaptation. The design also places an emphasis on natural light by introducing Caoba’s custom made narrow profile arched Double-Hung Windows, double height spaces and views of the spacious and lusciously landscaped courtyard. The project was finished in 2014 and since then it’s been attracting quite a bit of high-profile interest thanks to its low-profile location, luxurious lofts, and wealth of amenities.

The restoration and adaptation of the building didn’t go unnoticed. In 2014 it was announced as a finalist for Interior Design Magazine’s Best of Year Awards and in 2016 once again for NYC's x Design Award.

The projects presented here are only 3 examples of the wide range of products we offer and our ability to meet any design expectations you should have. Only the highest quality raw materials and components are carefully selected and we manufacture them with state of the art machinery and old-world craftsmanship.
