The Cooper Square Hotel
|location||New York, New York|
The 21-storey, 145-room hotel, dubbed 'Downtown Luxury' by its owner/developer, has an open plan with a modern European feel. The main public spaces include a library with a bar and fireplace, an intimate screening room, and a destination restaurant, the first in New York for celebrated Los Angeles-based chef Govind Armstrong. The hotel's interior organization and circulation plan is inspired by the small courtyards of the East Village. There are several small, intimate spaces on the back of the building and one can access the second floor bar without having to go into the lobby, forming a continuous loop between the many intimate spaces inside and outside the building (text from http://www.worldarchitecturenews.com).
