Today as I was enjoying my morning coffee and browsing Tumblr, I stumbled across the image above from the Wythe Hotel in Williamsburg Brooklyn. As coincidence would have it, I visited the Wythe Hotel last week for dinner + drinks and fell in love with the place, but I’d only seen the lobby and restaurant. Freshome, a design and architecture blog, recently featured the hotel on their website showing a bunch of beautiful photos. I love that the building was a textile mill in its former life and was renovated into a beautiful modern day hotel with much of its original character intact. After spending so long designing for a hotel company, I can really appreciate all the design and details that go into these projects.
The Hotel’s press release states, “Built in 1901, this former textile factory has been meticulously converted into a 72-room hotel offering service and amenities yet to be seen in the borough, while the building’s industrial character – like its concave corner entrance, original pine beams, masonry, arched windows and cast-iron columns – has been beautifully preserved. Renowned Brooklyn restaurateur Andrew Tarlow, of Marlow & Sons, Diner, and Roman’s, manages the hotel’s expansive food and beverage program. Venues include Reynards – a ground floor restaurant and bar with a wood-fired oven and grill, courtyard seating, and a daily menu featuring market-driven American fare and seasonal cocktails, and Ides – a 6th floor bar and terrace with stunning Manhattan and Brooklyn views.”
Beautiful view right?
Love the headboard wall detail.
Really like their logo and the design of their website, beautiful really.
These simply line drawings of the room layouts are really quite nice.
They have a custom-made neon sign outside. Absolutely STUNNING at night.
