Saving a Cultural Anchor


Building Design + Construction published an article detailing the renovation of the historic Cincinnati Music Hall. Having been placed on the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s “Endangered Historic Places” list, the building was in desperate need of updates. Working with a shorter-than-ideal timeline, and a budget half allocated to obligatory infrastructure improvements, project architect Perfido Weiskopf Wagstaff + Goettel certainly faced a challenging task.

The building’s façade needed the most restoration. Marvin Windows and Doors supplied 103 windows — 90 of which were custom made — including a trio of transom windows that were previously hidden. The three transoms were constructed based on only one from the 1950s, which showed the window details.
