The Standard Hotel New York
Standing over The High Line, the concrete building of the Standard Hotel New York reminds of Le Corbusier's works. The integration at public space level turns this building into more than just another addition to the NY skyline, becoming an urban piece of the Meatpacking District and a detonator of the current renovation of the area. The 20-storey building includes 337 rooms, a restaurant (The Standard Grill) and a bar (The Living Room). The interiors were designed by NY-based architects Roman and Williams (text from archdaily).
