Highline Hotel, NY
The area surrounding Chelsea and the Meatpacking District is a mix of industrial, residential, and socially active spaces such as restaurants, bars, and the new craze of the area: Highline Park. This hotel is situated on 19th and joins the Highline with the street level activity by way of art gallery and hotel lobby.
The inspiration for the project comes from imagining the spaces as rows of bricks that can slide back and forth next to each other and create interlocking programmatic spaces. This idea is carried up through the building to incorporate balconies, circulation spaces and interactive two-story spaces such as a rooftop bar and restaurant.
