Library and Office Renovations
The Yale Club of New York City | New York, New York
During our phased renovation of the Yale Club’s guestrooms, we were asked to assist with additional improvements to their historic library. The space, originally designed by James Gamble Rodgers as one of the University’s most important campus architects, lacked adequate offices and suffered from too few places for members to read and work. The available footprint was highly constrained, so expansion options were limited. We created an efficient and comfortable office for two people out of what had been a closet using built-in units, quality lighting, and good materials to make the most effective use of space for handling special collections volumes. To increase space for members, we converted a conference room into a place for open seating with new lighting, finishes and furniture. Both spaces were designed to be compatible with the club’s existing historic architecture.
