williams college mears house
williamstown, ma

overview:

A fresh mix of historic and contemporary design welcomes alumni to the Office of College Relations. This renovation of a formerly nondescript office space, located in an historic building, draws upon its traditional period detailing, while contrasting new contemporary style elements, finishes, furniture and lighting. New built-ins display college awards, brochures and the alumni library and are detailed to feel original to the space. Formerly tired-looking and dated, the new materials and color palette incorporate a cheerful, yet sophisticated, mix of neutrals with Williams College school colors.
