Embassy of Argentina

Project Location:
Summary:
For this project, Durable Restoration performed a full repoint on sections throughout the Embassy as well as spot pointing on lower sections below the balcony.

The building that is now the Embassy of Argentina was built in 1906 for Pennsylvania Congressman George Franklin Huff.  The mansion was designed by Julian Abele, who was the first African American graduate of the University of Pennsylvania’s architecture program.  It wasn’t until 1913 that the Argentine Government purchased the building that was put on the market after the death of Huff.
