Intercontinental Hotel CourtBack to Projects list
- 111 East 48th Street, 10171 New York
Located in the center of the vibrant Time’s Square district, this new four-star hotel serves as a base for well traveled tourists and dignitaries from around the world. As a first impression, its lobby court presents a timeless serenity that reflects the hotel’s hospitality goals. The Zen-like space will oxygenate each guest’s return from the street life and serves as a visual feature for the premium restaurants that book-end the court. With an illuminated red resin wall as its backdrop, a constructed metal tree clump appears to occupy an island floating in the zero-edge reflecting pool. Bamboos in a stainless planter, dwarf boxwood and a laminated granite wall strike dramatic patterns across the ground plane that has been detailed in bright white washed riverstones. Subtle concealed LED lighting accents the composition elements throughout the day and evening.
