A New York Boutique Hotel Blends Art and Design

 architecture

The William extended stay boutique hotel in New York City is far from the usual boring beige hotel experience.

 architecture

In Situ Design together with Lilian B Interiors have designed collaboratively for an unusual coordination of art and design.

 architecture

The process of interior design started with a shared studio space where vibrant coloured paints shared layout space with fabric swatches.

 architecture

Huge paintings were commissioned for the corridors on each of five floors in distinct color fields – blue, teal, pink, green and orange.

 architecture

Then the rooms off each floor coordinate the interiors with the huge wall paintings in that hallway.

 architecture

The result is a series of vibrant rooms that connect to and enlarge upon the paintings around the hotel.

 architecture

As the paintings materialized so did the rooms and as the rooms evolved so did the paintings.

 architecture

The intention was to merge the boundaries of art and interior design.

 architecture

These hallways certainly wake up the weary traveler with these jolts of vibrant colors on white.

 architecture

Certainly a different hotel experience!

An Achievable Utopia by New York City’s West Side Highway

 architecture

Heatherwick Studio has teamed up with landscape architect Mathews Nielsen to design a utopian vision of a pier that creates much-needed green space in New York City.

 architecture

Located just off the West Side Highway. the new space will offer expansive views of the manhattan skyline.

 architecture

Unlike many such utopian proposals, this will actually be built.

 architecture

Thanks to a pair of wealthy New York benefactors, the funding is already in place.

 architecture

Construction is expected to start in 2016, and the park on piers is expected to be built for $130 million.

 architecture

“The revitalization and transformation of this pier into a vibrant arts and community space will bring new energy and new visitors to our waterfront,” said Mayor De Blasio.

 architecture

“When I was little, I used to come to manhattan to visit my great aunt who lived here and never forgot being driven down the West Side Highway and seeing the fields of disused pile heads sticking out of the river,” commented thomas heatherwick on the project’s announcement. “All these years later, my studio and I are honored to now be growing another set of river piles in the midst of these historic ones to hold up a new phenomenal public park with special spaces for performances. this project is a tribute to the ambition and vision of the hudson river park trust and the diller–von furstenberg family foundation.”

A Bamboo Grove at the Heart of a House in Vancouver

 architecture

A central greenery defines the Findlay Residence by Splyce Design.

 architecture

Located in North Vancouver, Canada, the house is surrounded by the quiet of pine trees – and unremarkable suburban houses.

 architecture

In the suburbs, it can be difficult to connect to nature rather than the neighbours, but this is achieved here.

 architecture

A sunken patio creates intimacy in a flat lawn.

 architecture

The green central courtyard brings nature to the heart of the home.

 architecture

Mirrors are suspended in front of the view of the central bamboo grove.

 architecture

It filters light through all the surrounding spaces.

 architecture

Even upstairs, the most spartan of bedrooms overlooks the tops of the green center.

 architecture

Glass by open stairs allows light to flood deep into the home.

 architecture

A computer study is less light-filled – by design.

 architecture

The simple palette of concrete floors and white walls strengthen the clarity and purity of the interiors.

 architecture

The architect has achieved privacy even within fully glazed walls in the suburbs.
