Insane Asylum turned Boutique Hotel by Deborah Berke Partners
“Hotel Henry” is a late 19th-century building that was originally created as a mental hospital – the Richardson Olmsted Campus. The impressive structure was recently restored and redesigned by Deborah Berke Partners to serve its new purpose.
“The main entrance and neighbouring wings were preserved, with patient rooms transformed into hotel accommodation, and cabinet-like bump outs added in the hallways for en-suite bathrooms.
A few elements were restored to original condition, particularly a winged staircase, wide light-filled hallways, and more decorative features as such as mantle pieces and cornice moulding. A contemporary entryway made of glass and steel was added, in juxtaposition with the structure’s original masonry.”Architecture Interior Design Posted on October 30, 2017
