Award-winning Mexican architect Enrique Norten of Ten Architectos completed the Hôtel Americano in New-York city for Mexican-based boutique hotelier Carlos Couturier & Moises Micha of famed hotel group Grupo Habita.
The Japanese inspired guests rooms (56) was designed by French designer Arnaud Montigny. The Hôtel Americano is located in West Chelsea on 27th Street in Manhattan’s art gallery district in New-York, US.
The Hôtel Americano sits on what is one of New York's most active gallery streets by day and vibrant club scenes by night. The façade of the hotel directly reflects this dichotomy. The hotel floors are set back from the street behind a stainless steel mesh screen, with catwalks between. This screen will create a much needed buffer between the street side hotel rooms and the all night activity of the bars and clubs below, while providing the hotel, restaurant and club with an iconic, highly recognizable public face.
“ We’re a neutral space in an area jam-packed with art galleries. Hôtel Americano focuses on architecture, design and gastronomic pleasures, for the first time, we’re not integrating art work into the concept “ - Carlos Couturier, Grupo Habita.
“We want to tell a story about Latin America and New York. A New Yorker is always an Americano, because they live in a city where they have to adapt all the time. Set in a former parking garage, the Hôtel Americano has a cool industrial Manhattan veneer but a warm Latin soul “ - Moises Micha, Grupo Habita.
The boutique hotel includes 56-room, a roof deck with a pool, bar, and garden terrace, which alleviate the surrounding concrete jungle with reflective surfaces, water, greenery, and views of the cityscape.
