Renovation work at the Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal in Ohio, US, is now complete.

The $10m renovation of the 10,000ft² building corner is the first phase of a planned restoration of the entire building.

Work involved restoration of two dining room areas that will serve as a rental space for public use.

US-based practice Glaserworks worked on the project, which also restored ceiling murals in both dining rooms that were painted by French artist Pierre Bourdelle.

Funds for the scheme have been secured from the city of Cincinnati and other government agencies.

The refurbished historic dining rooms have been equipped with the latest energy-efficient technologies and an energy-conserving green roof, according to cincinnati.com.
