Project History
Noted Spanish designer Rafael Guastavino’s company created distinctive tiled domes that elevated Henry Dagit’s architectural design to its place as a local landmark. Unfortunately, repeated freeze/thaw cycles caused extensive damage. Retiling done in the 1950s proved insufficient. With limited funds available, the 1950s tiles were removed, the substrate was smoothed, and the original colors and sketches of Guastavino were recreated in water repellent mineral silicate paint
