White Elephant Nantucket

Nantucket, Massachusetts
Client: White Elephant Resorts, New England Development

Project Description

  • To celebrate the landmark hotel’s 100th anniversary, White Elephant Nantucket engaged Elkus Manfredi Architects to design a top-to-bottom transformation and renovation of the 54-room hotel and its 11 cottages.
  • The design draws inspiration from Nantucket—its history, the quality of its natural light, its landscape—to breathe new life into the historic buildings and immerse guests in an authentic Nantucket vacation experience.
  • The redesigned lobby sets the tone for relaxed elegance, and the hotel and its 11 guest cottages are filled with details that honor the colors, textures, and artistic legacy of the island.
