Entry Description

Time is a critical element in the hotel. Specifically, our goal was to express the idea of time as a true luxury in our busy lives. By distorting and twisting this concept in surprising and subtle ways, guests will feel as though time has been suspended or extended. An art gallery in the entry features a kinetic multimedia art installation with images that appear and disappear, playing on the idea of time changing over the course of the day. The second floor lobby is an airy, light-filled urban retreat layered in luxurious, highly tactile materials including stone, blackened steel, and brass with reflective jewel-like finishes The guest rooms, suites, and penthouse are comfortable and inviting. Oak plank flooring, freestanding furniture pieces, a plush leather upholstered bed, and custom watercolor print area rugs create a warm, residential feeling.
