Recycling the Past



 

 

A few years ago RTP rescued 100-year-old copper dormer windows and cupolas from the former Overbrook Hospital.  Today, these pieces are still getting rave reviews from our clients.

The Overbrook Hospital has an interesting background as it was the subject of much debate with advocates pushing to preserve the multi-building complex as part of a historic site.  In the end, demolition was the chosen course of action, but RTP did manage to salvage 28 round copper dormer windows.  The craftsmanship is astounding on these early 20th century pieces that measure 5’ 6” across and 12” deep.  RTP also managed to save other artifacts such as several copper cupolas.

The skies the limit on the way these pieces can be used.  They can be installed for their original purpose or mounted as decoration.  

One RTP client used a dormer window to decorate his covered patio pavilion wall.  He added some copper, toned the patina to match the original and added a hanging system.  He even installed an LED light behind it to light up the glass at night.

Check out the photos to see this piece of history and amazing art that now adorn his patio wall.  Stop by the shop to see all the incredible artifacts we saved from the hospital.
