The Hotel on Rivington
The Hotel on Rivington helped to usher in a new day on the Lower East Side with its sleek and thoroughly modern design. This twenty-story glass and aluminum boutique hotel towers over its neighbors, primarily consisting of tenement-style buildings with storefronts. The fashionable destination hotel wanted to keep its appearance fresh and up-to-date with a new facade that included custom-fabricated windows and doors along with decorative interior wall panels.
Project: Right Path Windows & Restoration removed and replaced the entire facade on the first and second floors, interior lobbies, along with a paneled dining room which opens to the street through a bi-fold sliding door system. Ceilings received an antique mirror and wood panel treatment.

The demolition was done by the client. Right Path supplied the shop drawings detailing all of the parts needed for fabrication of the storefront facade design. We developed the shop drawings, and the paint and stain samples to create a custom wood storefront that aligned with the designer's vision. These components were subsequently approved.
We completed the fabrication of two floors of the façade, which consisted of a combination of fixed casement windows, double hung windows, entry doors, secondary doors, large bi-folding doors, wall paneling, antiqued mirrored ceiling paneling, and tiled walls.
We chose to use Accoya brand wood for this project because of its superior dimensional stability. One of the beneficial features of Accoya is that it physically cannot shrink or swell, which allows for minimal maintenance in terms of painting. When we later had to replace a piece of broken glass, it was remarkable to see that there had been absolutely no shrinkage.
