Medical Center Guest Hotel

Sharing our belief that an interior can be a healing space and guided by the Vincentian values of the Daughters of Charity the studio set about to develop a LEED compliant concept for the renovation of the 40 room Seton Guest Hotel that both respected the pious simplicity of the Daughter’s of Charity, while still making the guest rooms uplifting, relevant, and providing their guests all of today’s modern conveniences of home.

The public spaces which included corridors, lobby, community room, and breakfast room were designed in a neutral calming palette, emphasizing clean lines with little unnecessary adornment.

The guest rooms are outfitted with a new energy efficient LED lighting plan, convenience plugs, wifi, reading lights, and integrated wall mounted furnishings, making the rooms functional for extended stays.

Among the soft furnishings improvements include:  blackout drapes, new bedding, sofa beds for accommodating additional family members.  All textiles, including many with Crypton coatings were specified with longevity and ease of care in mind.

The Vincentian Values:   Respect, Compassionate Service, Simplicity, Advocacy for the Poor, Inventiveness to Infinity.

Values supported by over 375 years of service and action.

Completed: 2013
