This hotel project has been designed as a small intervention in a downtown Manhattan building. With a flexible layout, it can be adapted to most typical urban situations, and with regular activities can be adapted to most cultural environments.
The main questions are how to attract locals and to make the guests want to stay inside the hotel. The key is not just to solve a space which quality can help people to interact but also with the right activities.
For guests, a taste of NY right there in the lobby; for new Yorkers, a place to enjoy, to start as a musician or as an artist, to work or learn.
And for everybody: a place to stay.
(You can find more detailed explanations in every image and on the updates to come).
Thank you, and enjoy your stay.
