Newport Casino and International Tennis Hall of Fame

Beginning in 1997, DBVW Architects has completed numerous phases of work at McKim, Mead & White’s renowned Newport Casino. In June 1998, the north wing of the Casino was severely damaged by fire. Reconstruction of this portion of the International Tennis Hall of Fame included getting an existing restaurant up and running in four weeks, reconstructing and re-structuring water-damaged museum space, and recreating a multi-function room. Other restoration projects throughout the complex have included reconstructing a two-story, 100 foot long porch and recreating historic decorative paint finishes on the vaulted ceiling of a former billiard room. On the top floor of the building, within a former attic space, a new Information Resource Center was created to house the impressive collections of the International Tennis Hall of Fame and to provide a place for visiting scholars to study the collection.
