Vassar Institute for the Liberal Arts

Nestled on the south side of the Alumnae House lawn at the campus gateway, Vassar’s new Inn and Institute for the Liberal Arts will combine conference space with 50 guest rooms and a restaurant.

The design of the building preserves the domestic scale of the surrounding neighborhood by breaking the program into discrete elements; a three-story gable roof Inn, a two-story Institute with a restaurant below, and a glass lobby to create notion of a public living room.
