10 Greene Street
Designed by John B Snook, one of New York City’s most esteemed architects, just over a century and a half ago, this Greene Street building, located in the heart of Downtown Manhattan’s fashionable SoHo district, has recently undergone a dramatic interior transformation as well as a complete restoration to its historic, cast-iron façade. OPEN AWD was proud to be a part of this unique renovation project, and happy to create a series of bespoke, custom windows. Working alongside the property’s developer, Javeri Capital, OPEN AWD helped breathe new life into the building—which is the oldest cast-iron building on its block—helping...
300 East 5th Street
Built in 1874, on the corner of 2nd Ave and East 5th Street, 300 East 5th Street encapsulated the spirit of late 19th century New York. Red-bricked and five stories tall, the building was accompanied with the classic heavy stone windowsills and traditional fire escape which would become standard throughout the city. Having remained untouched for almost a century, a storefront renovation in what we estimate to be the 1960s or 1970s dramatically altered its look.

In 2019, Open AWD was commissioned to restore the facade....
409-411 Vanderbilt Avenue
  Built during the late 19th century, this Queen-Anne-style carriage house on Vanderbilt Avenue epitomizes the heart, soul, and style of Brooklyn’s Clinton Hill, a neighborhood once famed for its mansion rows and carriage houses. Designed originally to house coachmen and horses for an estate on Clinton Avenue, the building, having most recently been home to the Brooklyn Veterinary Hospital, has just undergone a careful restoration by The Brooklyn Home Company. At just under 24-feet-wide, this stunning, red brick property, which boasts its own gated driveway and private parking, has a stately and timeless appearance which was carefully reinvigorated during...
514 West 24th St
  This building on 24th Street, was a development which OPEN Architectural Windows and Doors was incredibly proud to be a part of. Located in the heart of Chelsea in Manhattan, the building, whose façade is made up of stunning, green terracotta tile and custom-made wooden and copper window units, is one of the most unique and visually arresting buildings in its district. Our role in the development was to create the wooden window units, which we did, using a special copper cladding. We also designed matching, copper spandrel panels, which complimented the window units. The combination of terracotta tile...
