Carnegie Hall Restoration

New York, New York

Client: City of New York
Architect: James Stewart Polshek & Partners
Completion: 1987

Fisher Marantz Stone designed the lighting for the renovation of four facets of this great landmark: the façade and the new canopy, the new lobby and hallways, the main hall and recital hall interiors, and stage lighting. The Viennese inspired touches by James Stewart Polshek & Partners are evident throughout, and echoed in our design.

Carnegie Hall was designed by architect William Burnet Tuthill and built by philanthropist Andrew Carnegie in 1891. The Main Hall offers 2,800 seats and Zankel Hall, originally simply called “Recital Hall”, seats 268.
