Hamilton College, Ruth and Elmer Wellin Museum of Art

Clinton, NY


Machado and Silvetti Associates, LLC



The Ruth and Elmer Wellin Museum of Art, on the Hamilton College campus, was designed by Machado and Silvetti Associates.  With the museum set in upstate New York and requiring high-humidity space, Machado and Silvetti realized that thermal performance of the exterior enclosure would be critical to the building’s success.  SGH provided design consulting, modeling, construction administration, and performance testing services for the building enclosure that consists of terra-cotta and precast cladding with curtain wall fenestration.
