About

Based on the concepts of sustainability, simplicity and transparency, we focused on bringing a conscious approachability to the design, coupled with the use and celebration of unadulterated natural materials for Barry Sternlicht’s first 1 Hotel project with Starwood Capital Group.
We embraced the pre-existing remnants of the building’s architecture, including exposed concrete ceilings and floors, steel columns and beams, and terracotta block masonry walls. Natural materials were brought into the space in their raw form including woods and textiles, celebrating their original markings, veining, knots, and color variation. Locally sourced materials were used wherever possible, including a salvaged water tank wood branded with its origin used to encapsulate the wall behind the bed in many rooms, as well as river stones, plant species, linen screens and leathers, all produced and sourced from upstate New York. We incorporated greenery at every turn. Living moss grows in hallway planters throughout. Kokodema hangs in the lobby and a three story green façade greets you upon arrival.

"A little bit of design jujitsu, turning rough elements - natural wood headboards made from New York City water towers, existing terracotta blocks - into artful finishes."

Tactile Versatility

The core central space on level two is a communal gathering area. The column-mounted communal table creates a warm central hub to the second floor that is inward facing, in contrast to the outward facing meeting rooms along the perimeter. This area was designed to be flexible for both day & night - acting as a bar for a larger gathering, having an impromptu meeting over coffee, or sharing the table while working on a laptop. The wood millwork column surrounds create a sense of warmth, while the opening in the floor slab brings an energy into the space from the restaurant below and maximizes natural light within this area.
Named “Best Chef in New York City” by the James Beard Foundation, Chef Jonathan Waxman brings his seasonal cooking to Jams in the airy ground floor of 1 Hotel. The open kitchen, exposed brick, reclaimed oak, and greenery-lined patio make the space as dynamic as the award-winning food.

The southern wall throughout the first and second floors of the project was revealed during the demo of the previously existing tenant buildouts. The texture was beautiful, so rather than cover it up, it was cleaned and exposed as the final finish. This was a zero-impact design solution that furthered our design concept, and of course was budget friendly.
