Collection of modern, minimalist, and eco friendly architectural design for your home inspiration
Last January, New York city has welcomed a sophisticating hotel building which designed by Todd Schliemann of the New York-based Polshek Partnership. A hotelier boutique André Balazs, brought the Standard hotel as another luxury hotel in New York. Rises from stilts 18 stories above the High Line, the Standard hotel contains 317 guest rooms, several restaurants and bars, and a gym.
A modern style is the main purpose, rather than just iconic. Looking from its slab on stilts design, the hotel recalls the pioneering works of le Corbusier and other notable international style buildings. Mix of styles are found of its interior which brought by Hollywood set designer Shawn Hausmann and New York based Roman and Williams.
Sitting under the High Line, the hotel lobby is early 20th century design, while the guest rooms in the tower above are designed with mid-century works in mind. On the top floor is a double height glass enclosed space that houses a supper club and lounge. Its design pays homage to Warren Platner, a protégé of Saarinen’s, who designed the Windows of the World restaurant in the World Trade Center.
Aside from its fetching design and proximity to all the Meatpacking District, the Standard hotel is offering a stunning view of the city’s most cherished sites: the Empire State Building, the Hudson River, and in the distance, the Statue of Liberty.
