Williams Inn

Williams College - Williamstown, MA

New England Farmhouse meets sustainable chic at new hotel for Williams College.


The Project

For generations Williams College had maintained an inn to service the campus community and it had been years since its last renovation. We saw an opportunity to relocate the Inn from the outskirts of town to the central commercial district in support of the College’s commitment to help reinvigorate Williamstown’s main street, creating a destination hotel to serve the entire community and draw tourists.

The Result

The hotel is configured as three sections with distinct, but complementary, architectural detailing using stone and barn-wood siding: the ‘main house’ features reception and guest rooms; the ‘bunkhouse’ features event space and guest rooms; and the ‘barn’ with the restaurant and bar. Guests approach the Inn across a stone curved bridge and may assume that it’s existed for centuries in its new idyllic setting.

Our hope is that the new Williams Inn serves as a welcoming spot for locals and visitors alike to gather and enjoy the scenic atmosphere.
