Building Spotlight: The Men's Kitchen
The Building Spotlight focuses on buildings at the Richardson Olmsted Campus still in need of rehabilitation. While 3 buildings have been successfully redeveloped on-site, there are still 10 more – or, in other words, 350,000 square feet! – left to save.
Small and charming, the men’s kitchen building at the Richardson Olmsted Campus is a perennial favorite among visitors to the site. Constructed between 1876-1879 and designed by H.H. Richardson himself, this single-story building can be found to the northeast of the iconic Towers Building.
Like the Towers Building and many of the attached wing buildings, the men’s kitchen building was built of Medina sandstone. The men’s kitchen building is the only outbuilding on-site to have Richardsonian decorations and details carved into the sandstone like the wing buildings.
