The NY Times writes about the super-tony million dollar makeover completed earlier this year at the St. George Hotel Dorm at 55 Clark Street. Educational Housing Services hired starchitect Wid Chapman to redo the space. More photos after the jump.
NY Times: The colors are vivid, because “we wanted the space to be graphic and vibrant,” Mr. Chapman said. It must have worked, because, he added, “Boys are suddenly packing the kitchen with frying pans in hand in the morning and evenings, because it’s the hip place to hang out.”
Students bring their own food, pots, pans and dishes from their rooms, and are expected to wash their own dishes. As Kevin Gross, the director of property management for Educational Housing Services, noted: “It would be a difficult process to manage pots and pans and dirty dishes belonging to 1,300 kids.”
The lounge, at 55 Clark Street, was completed in October, at a cost of $1.1 million.
