CARNESIE ASCEND CHARTER SCHOOL: This two phase project is both a school and a restoration of an existing 1950s building in East Brooklyn. Careful detail and attention has been given to restoring the travertine and terrazzo surfaces in the interior spaces of the lobby, as well as restoring the existing lighting, railing, and balusters. The classrooms have been updated with new lighting, flooring, and technology to bring this school up to date with current education standards. Phase II will include complete restoration of the gym and refinishing the third floor of the building.
