Phased Guestroom Renovations
The Yale Club of New York City | New York, New York
Originally designed by James Gamble Rogers, the historic clubhouse features a full range of amenities including a fitness center, squash courts, weight rooms, dining venues, banqueting facilities, lounges, and ten floors of guest rooms.
Our work focused on the guest room floors. A phased renovation reworked the bathrooms and the suite configurations and generally updated the interior spaces with fresh finishes and furniture, to convey a sense of a sophisticated city club while paying special attention to the needs of women and the younger guests.
The halls were upgraded through new wall covering, custom carpeting and the complete replacement of all the doors which now have raised panels in walnut. In addition modern standards for life safety, temperature control, and ADA compliance have been met.
The color palette throughout draws heavily upon “Yale blue,” balanced with neutrals and frequent use of the Yale Club logo. Fun details include a depiction of a bulldog, Yale’s mascot, dressed in top hat and tails on the guestroom bolster pillows and club branding even on the door knobs.
