Hanover Inn – Dartmouth College

Carpenter worked with Cambridge Seven Architects, and interior designer Bill Rooney Studios to totally renovate and reposition the Hanover Inn with a new Conference Center addition, two new restaurants, a full update to the existing guestrooms and 16 new guestrooms. The Hanover Inn has a timeless quality, with brick walls, white pilasters, residential style dormers and a classic front porch overlooking the famous Dartmouth Green. The renovations, designed to integrate with the solid history of the building, create a fresh, updated look and feel that reinforces the visitor’s feeling of being at Dartmouth College, in an environment deeply rooted in New England tradition.

The room is designed as a classic glass box floating within the historic arms of the old building. Art has been introduced to the space, suggesting the flavor of New Hampshire with an edgy twist. The interiors play off the existing architecture, with textures of the existing brick, painted wood trim and moldings, and arched windows juxtaposed against the new furniture and art to create a truly memorable Inn.

Carpenter is the asset manager for the hotel, the hotel is owned by Dartmouth College.
