WELCOME TO THE CALVERT
A building spanning two centuries of use, nestled within the diverse neighborhood of Newport’s North End, the former school building serves to provide housing for those young at heart while creating a landmark to the Broadway streetscape. A streetscape that has become well known for welcoming visitors and residents alike into the Port city’s center by way of authentic dining, cultural events, and homegrown entertainment.
Creating a desirable contrast to the neighboring wooden homes of the same
era; the brick façade of both buildings meets the streetscape with large black double-hung windows and distinct molding details restoring the building exterior to its original presence. Entering the building you quickly learn the finishes remain true to the building's bones and original use but have been coupled with the modern conveniences of the 21st century. The original stairwells are infused with fresh updates and modern lighting evoking the excitement of early dismissal. Spacious and softly lit corridors create warmth and openness by means of a sophisticated simple mix of materials, colors, and artwork that spark a collegiate nostalgia.
