Opened in April, Hotel Henry at the Richardson Olmsted Campus in Buffalo, New York, transforms a progressive 19th-century psychiatric hospital into an elegant urban resort and conference center.

The building is a National Historic Landmark and part of a 1,500-foot-long complex of stone and brick buildings by Henry Hobson Richardson that are surrounded by 100 acres of grounds.

Reimagined by New York architects Deborah Berke Partners, the new Hotel Henry features a glass box main entry constructed using Tubelite’s curtainwall system. Blending historic and modern elements, the fresh concept remains true to the original philosophy of this healing environment, which emphasized the restorative and therapeutic potential of daylight, fresh air, and pleasing spaces and views.
