Designed by C.B.J. Snyder, PS 277 in the Bronx was constructed between 1896 and 1897. The facades and roofs of this historic landmark are leaking extensively, causing the plaster walls and ceilings to deteriorate and, collapse. The building’s existing structure consists of brick masonry over terra cotta backup supported on a steel frame. Nelligan White proposes removing the face brick, the terra cotta window surrounds, the architectural stonework, the flashing, and the roofing – and replacing these with architectural pre-cast concrete. All the elements will be installed as a “rain-screen” over a spray-applied air barrier/waterproof membrane with a narrow cavity drainage plan.
