This project involves the renovation and restoration of five existing load bearing masonry and timber structures into a 98-room boutique hotel and art museum. A major feature is the removal of a 46 foot section of load bearing wall at the lowest level to create the art museum area. The wall and floors above were supported by two 9’-6” trusses which are exposed to view.
