A creation designed by Marcel Breuer, revised and corrected  

Located in New Haven, Connecticut, the Brutalist building designed by the famous architect, a key figure in 20th-century design, to whom we owe, among other things, the B3 chair, is getting a new lease on life in the hands of the Becker and Becker architecture studio. The result? A 165-room boutique hotel that includes a restaurant, gallery, and meeting space. A successful historic rehabilitation of a building designed by Marcel Breuer in 1967, with a significant eco-responsible component. The program includes solar panels that provide 100% of the electricity for lighting, heating, and air conditioning, recycled and local building materials, and heat pumps. A whole succession of qualities that will certainly make the hotel the first of its kind to be certified as “Passive House” in the United States, the studio assures.
