Ames Boston Hotel Renewal
Location: Boston, Massachusetts, United States of America
Design: Glen and Co. Architecture
Glen Coben, of NYC-based architecture & design firm, Glen and Co. Architecture just finished the reno & redesign of the 1893, Ames Boston Hotel (and the restaurant inside, Cultivar) ) taking the building’s original architecture and redesigning it to merge the past, present and future by blending modern elegance with its many preserved, original features, to create a combo of modern style and old-world sophistication.
New York Designer, Glen Coben Completes Design for Ames Boston Hotel & Ground-Floor Restaurant, Cultivar
New York City-based architecture and design firm, Glen and Co. Architecture completed the re-design of the historic Ames Boston Hotel, spearheading the design of the hotel’s public spaces, including the lobby, The Library, Ames and Oliver & Oakes rooms, and Cultivar restaurant.
The revitalized 15-story, 114-suite Ames Boston Hotel merges the past, present and future, offering a blend of modern style and old-world sophistication. Glen blended his designs with the many preserved, original features of the hotel, including the lobby’s tiled mosaic arched ceiling and a marble staircase that runs from the first floor to the roof.
The renovated lobby features sleek new check-in stations and a casual seating area accented by warmly-toned wood shelving and trim pieces. Adjacent to the revamped entryway is The Library, which boasts the same eye-catching, mid-century design scheme that begins in the lobby and serves as communal workspace.
The 114 guestrooms incorporate modern and timeless elements with a refreshed chic color palette that evokes a sense of calm and peace. The design of the 1,7000 SF event space, including the Oliver & Oakes room, serve as the ultimate customizable setting for personalized, intimate get-togethers, banquets and conferences, along with lounge, classroom and theater-style meetings and presentations.
Glen is also doing the redesign of the historic Saratoga Springs hotel, The Adelphi Hotel (and the restaurant, The Blue Hen), so is able to speak to this larger story of designing old, historic buildings to enter the modern world of luxury.
