The Citizen
The Citizen Hotel: Open to all.


The Citizen is a conduit for exchange, a digital and physical platform for human connection.

A digital interface at each Citizen location allows hotel visitors to view and connect to Citizen lobbies around the world. The interactive screen displays the activity of another Citizen location in real-time, allowing Tokyo to celebrate the world series with New York or London to watch the world cup together with Rio de Jeneiro.

Every Citizen Hotel has the same bones, but the unique people and uses in each place reveal the distinct character of the home city. A pop-up shop for local artisans, a public parklet, and a newsstand create a vibrant street edge while a lively bar, and an inhabitable communal landscape allow spaces for communication, debate, and performance.

Welcome to the Citizen Hotel, open to all.
