Portfolio: Albany Renaissance

Click Image to View Larger | View All Projects

The converson of the historic De Witt Cinton Hotel into the Albany Renaissance bridges the city's rich Dutch history and modernism of the Empire State Plaza. The building's iconic millwork was left as it was found; not restored or enhanced. Modern elements were uniquely introduced into the traditional millwork paneled rooms. The "egg" polished chrome reception pods and modern elevator artwork reference the Plaza's iconic "egg" theater and art collection. The Guestrooms marry modern function with Dutch finishes. Corridor and Guestroom carpets mimic aged residential throw rugs. On each floor, the iconic Dutch girl looks on, as the water table rises with the building's floors.
