Library and Office Renovations
The Yale Club of New York City | New York, New York
Over the course of several years, we worked closely with The Yale Club of New York on the phased renovation of their ten floors of guestrooms. During that process, we were also asked to design improvements for the building’s historic library to make it more comfortable for members and to improve the staff’s working areas. The space, originally designed by James Gamble Rodgers, 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.
