Restoring and Antique Entrance

Project Overview

Heritage’s staff recently completed the restoration of an antique entrance for St. Bede’s Academy. Since portions of the entrance trim had to be restored without disassembly, specialized techniques were employed to repair and refinish each surface. Several doors, a stained glass window frame, and an original light fixture were also repaired and finished to a like-new condition.

 

Jefferson Texas Church

Project Overview

Heritage Restoration and Design was invited into this project by the pastor and church committee as design support for a local architect and was ultimately awarded a contract for a variety of components. Originally this church was constructed in the mid 1900s and unfortunately burned to the ground. It was later rebuilt but not to the same scale or architecture. In the early 2000s it was decided that an interior renovation was needed to bring back many of the lost elements during the reconstruction. Heritage, through its experience in this field, coordinated design elements with a local architecture firm and rough construction details with a local general contractor. Final installation of furnishings and artwork were completed by Heritage’s artisans.

 

Saint Anthony of Padua Altar

Project Overview

Heritage Restoration and Design was contracted to provide interior furnishings to the new St. Anthony of Padua church among the Centennial Hills in Las Vegas, Nevada. After waiting ten years with a rapidly growing parish community, they were finally able to build. Due to the community’s large size and small budget, the parish was unable to build both a church and pastoral center, so the new building was to be utilized for both purposes. Heritage came up with innovative techniques to create a space which could be used interchangeably as both a place of worship and a parish hall. This was accomplished by creating furnishings which both served traditional liturgical purposes but could also be easily stored as needed.

 

Belleville Ambo

Project Overview

Heritage was asked to review a collection of historic millwork and design a new pulpit and bishop’s canopy around the historic components. The 100 year old millwork was in need of stripping and refinishing. The wood components needed to be blended in with new wood components in a manner in which they were allowed to stand out on their own. The original millwork was very dry and brittle and required special processes to rejuvinate the wood components without creating splits and warping material. HRD suspended a wooden cross weighing 250 pounds across a 75 foot expanse at 35 feet in the air. Heritage manufactured a set of custom wood candlesticks with built in historic wood statuary.

 

Our Lady of Prompt Succor

Project Overview

Heritage Restoration and Design Studio's first interaction with Our Lady of Prompt Succor Church was when they became the unfortunate victims of a series of vandalisms. Through the restoration of these destroyed artifacts, Heritage was asked to design a series of church furnishings to better utilize the existing space. The furnishings design had to incorporate the traditional orders of architecture with influences from local and French traditions of the area.


 

Unity Temple Sanctuary

Project Overview

Heritage Restoration was invited to bid and participate in the restoration of Unity Temple, designed by world renowned architect Frank Loyd Wright.

It was Heritage Restoration's responsibility to restore all of the historic millwork in this building and replicate any missing components as needed.
