Strecker Memorial Laboratory
Roosevelt Island, New York
Exterior Restoration

Page Ayres Cowley Architects, LLC designed the restoration of the exterior of the Strecker Memorial Laboratory on Roosevelt Island. The building, built in 1892 and designed by Frederick Clark Withers, served as a laboratory and autopsy facility for the former City (Charities) Hospital. This local and national landmark had been gutted by fire and was adapted for re-use as an electrical substation for the Metropolitan Transit Authority. This project received a Lucy G. Moses Preservation Award from the Landmarks Conservancy for its “miraculous preservation effort,” and a 2003 Award for Excellence from the Preservation League of New York State.
