Designed by H.H. Richardson and Frederick Law Olmsted in the 1870s, the 203-acre Richardson Olmsted Campus began as the Buffalo State Asylum for the Insane. The 38-building site is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1986. SGH helped prepare a historic structures report (HSR) and subsequently designed structural and building enclosure repairs for the adaptive reuse of three buildings into a high-end boutique hotel.
