serenity in manhattan

Since opening its doors last year, the new Park Hyatt in New York has been getting a bit of attention. Designed by world-renowned, Pritzker Prize-winning architect Christian de Portzamparc, and one of my favourite interior design firms Yabu Pushelberg, the combination has created a harmony of external/internal experience not often found in hotels, where the main design consultants are usually separate practices.

It occupies the first 25 floors of the 90-storey One57 skyscraper with 210 spacious rooms and lift spaces befitting of Manhattan scale. The woven linear patterning of the facade is subtly repeated in various scales to wall linings and feature elements of the interior.

Yabu Pushelberg have used their usual sophisticated understated luxurious approach, but with a bit less bling than previous projects. Perhaps to maintain that high-end residential feel that the Park Hyatt is known for. There is a great balance of mid and light toned horizontally formatted textured surfaces, along with an airy feel created by lightly sitting furniture with subtle angles. Cobalt is the accent colour in the 350 piece artwork collection and the hotel has pooch packages, so bring along your little friend. I wonder if they have a pooping place for the furry ones?
