RENOVATIONS TO PRINCETON’S CHANCELLOR GREEN LIBRARY

Built in 1873, Chancellor Green Library was Princeton’s first purpose-built library. Designed by William A. Potter in the High Victorian Gothic style, the building features strong geometric forms, rich ornamentation, and a marvelous octagonal rotunda.  Our work program augmented a vibrant multi-purpose program, which includes lectures, dinners, musical performances, receptions, and exhibitions.  New historical lighting, as well as minimilist functional lighting highlights key feature of the robust interiors, as well as providing lighting and audio-visual presets for the various venue functions.  Selective restoration of millwork, metalsmithing, and building component materials were also part of the final design.
