ARCHITECTURAL PROJECTS:

The Douglas Building
Los Angeles, California

A complete restoration project to bring this iconic Los Angeles building back to its former beauty while converting it from its original commercial use to modern, residential living. Crown City Hardware was tasked with restoring and replacing the building’s missing and damaged hardware, while being true to its original design and function.

The Bradbury Building
Los Angeles, California

Arguably the most famous historic building in Los Angeles. Featured in many films, including Ridley Scott's masterpiece "Blade Runner", the interior is simply stunning. When tasked with restoring this treasure, the project leads turned to Crown City Hardware for reproduction work. In addition to many other pieces, we reproduced decorative, iron straps for the elevators, as well as mail slots and entry sets for interior doors.

The Westover Mansion
Fort Worth, Texas

The Westover Job was undertaken to recreate missing hardware as part of the complete renovation of a historic, turn of the century oil baron’s estate on the outskirts of Fort Worth. We were tasked with, among other work, reproducing the exquisite English Gothic, Yale “Hendon” escutcheon and knob set.
