					Landmark Lehman Mansion Reveals a Stunning Retractable Roof-Top

One of New York City’s most elegant historical buildings, The Lehman
Mansion, located on former Millionaires Row West 54th Street was recently
renovated with a vision to preserve its Beaux-Arts style charm while
being converted in a commercial office. This vision was achieved by
introducing a modern, innovative OpenAire roof design that is sure to be
one of the hottest building features in New York City.

Oakville, ON, Canada, May 17, 2012 -- One of New York City’s most elegant
historical buildings, The Lehman Mansion, located on former Millionaires
Row West 54th Street was recently renovated with a vision to preserve its
Beaux-Arts style charm while being converted in a commercial office. This
vision was achieved by introducing a modern, innovative OpenAire roof
design that is sure to be one of the hottest building features in New
York City.

OpenAire, the world’s leading designer, manufacturer and installer of
custom retractable roof enclosures and operable skylights, created an
awe-inspiring, custom solution for the Lehman Mansion roof-top. The
23’/7m by 16’/4.9m retractable roof is controlled by heat and rain
sensors that allow the roof to open or close automatically to optimize
climate control, achieving an outdoor experience on the roof-top of a
truly exquisite building.

The retractable roof enclosure satisfied a 1938 code for existing
structures by providing the Lehman Mansion with the Floor Area Ratio
(FAR) solution made possible by the roof enclosure opening more than 50%.
Therefore, the retractable/operable roof enclosure is considered
temporary and does not count as a covered space.

OpenAire’s LEED design, patented maintenance-free, thermally broken
aluminum framing system, complemented with bi-folding doors allows for
natural breezes, light and spectacular outdoor views of New York City.

”OpenAire brought the engineering excellence to create a unique roof-top
enclosure which included a stunning retractable roof and wall system. The
modern retractable roof design maintained the Lehman Mansion’s position
of being in a class of its own. ” says Kenneth J. Van Liew, P.E. of
Global Development Services Inc.
