For decades, an alley way window in Albany was replaced with an air conditioner unit and a sheet of glass haphazardly installed to fill the rest of the void. Working with the business owner in designing the frame and finding the right authentic prismatic glass, the large window with many divided lites was the result of the creative project; removing an air conditioner unit from the back of an 1890’s, red brick, masonic lodge, commercial building and installing a transom window very similar to what existed. The difference in natural lighting from the prismatic glass and aesthetics set the building apart from the rest.
When the original window is in a delicate state, where repair may do more harm than good, or if the original window is long gone, a historically accurate reproduction window is an excellent solution to the problem.
