領先的建筑和設計工作室羅克韋爾集團（Rockwell Group）剛剛在紐約哈德遜廣場（Hudson Yards）揭幕了第一家Equinox酒店的設計。羅克韋爾集團的成立是為了幫助Equinox重新定義豪華酒店的體驗，以此無縫擴展高性能生活方式。 Equinox Hotels適合忙碌的旅行者，他們希望他們的旅行適應他們現有的整體健康生活方式而不會受到干擾。
Leading architecture and design studio Rockwell Group has just unveiled its design for the first Equinox Hotel, in Hudson Yards, New York. Rockwell Group was brought on to help Equinox redefine the luxury hotel experience as a seamless extension of a high-performance lifestyle; Equinox Hotels is for the busy traveler who wants their travel to fit into their existing holistic healthy lifestyle without disruption.
Rockwell Group’s concept for the hotel was inspired by a seamless transition between travel, work, play, and a healthy lifestyle, built on the pillars of movement, nutrition, and regeneration. To deliver a truly humanistic experience, Rockwell Group’s concepts for the guest rooms, public spaces, and restaurant celebrate the rhythms of the body transitions (from active to restful), transformations (from day to night) and acknowledge fundamental human qualities such as curiosity and the need for both intimacy and community.
The new hotel is comprised of 212 guest rooms, three dedicated public spaces, and a restaurant that celebrate transitions and transformations (from day to night, from active to restful), with sleek, luxurious materials used in unexpected ways, such as resin, figured metal, stone, and leather. Guests feel as if they’ve stepped into a sumptuous residential loft. The color palette balances de-saturated neutrals with dark moments of contrast. Hints of saturated bold indigo reference the Hudson River and signify the brand.
The design of the guestroom creates a cool, dark, and quiet oasis, with soft lighting throughout. Rockwell Group eliminated lights on outlets and electronics, included blackout shades, and ensured that walls had super-high STC (sound transmission class) ratings. The room is divided into a generous, open entry foyer and dressing room/bathroom, with a welcoming, calming sleep chamber adjacent. Its multi-functionality creates space for yoga, exercise, and meditation, and has an integrated work/dine sofa.
一樓的大堂以有趣，高沖擊力，精美的材料以意想不到的方式使用，從而樹立了項目的基調。大堂和“天空大廳”（第25級）包括受委托的藝術裝置，這些裝置可發揮光的變化力量，并設置在有圖案的反光金屬背景前，為藝術品增添了戲劇性和深度感。 Sky Lobby處的定制燈具是到達后接待和禮賓區的直接背景，并延伸到樓梯上方，通往下方的雙層高餐廳。
The ground floor lobby sets the tone of the project, with interesting, high-impact, beautiful materials used in unexpected ways. The lobby and Sky Lobby (level 25) include commissioned art installations that play with the transformative power of light and are set in front of figured reflective metal backdrops—adding drama and depth to artwork. A custom light fixture at the Sky Lobby is an immediate backdrop to the reception and concierge area upon arrival and extends above the stair that leads to the double-height restaurant below.
樹脂和石材接待/禮賓服務臺區域設計為浮動雕塑物品和藝術品，低矮的豪華沙發座位立即吸引人。這些公共場所的每個表面都是豪華的：Sky Lobby的黑色石材地板；威尼斯石膏天花板；走廊和雙高柱上的書籍匹配的微板木板；定制開發的有圖形的反射金屬覆層，可改變剪力墻；具有定制絲和金屬線織物的玻璃面板；高處都是石材基地。 Sky Lobby的休息區延伸至下方餐廳上方的座位，并享有船只的景致，將酒店與哈德遜廣場的住所相連。
Resin and stone reception/concierge desks area are designed as floating sculptural objects and works of art, and low, plush couch seating is immediately inviting. Every surface in these public spaces is luxurious: black stone flooring at the Sky Lobby; Venetian plaster ceilings; book-matched, micro-slab wood panels at corridors and on double-height columns; custom-developed figured, reflective metal cladding that transforms a shear wall; glass panels with custom silk and metal thread fabric; and high stone bases are featured throughout. A lounge area at the Sky Lobby extends seating out over the restaurant below, and has a view of the Vessel, connecting the hotel back to its Hudson Yards home.
酒店餐廳和酒吧“ Electric Lemon”兩側的金屬墻都反射出懸掛在Sky Lobby上的輕盈雕塑，營造出深度和無限效果。選擇餐廳的座位（24級）以促進全天工作/就餐，并結合了舒適的中低高度座位和桌子。兩色調的酒吧具有變革性，而后酒吧則在白天旋轉以隱藏酒水并促進健康的生活方式。連接到餐廳的室外露臺設有帶頂棚的休息區，酒吧和光滑的黑色反射池。西邊的草坪區享有哈德遜河的景色。淺色石材色調帶有深色調，配有活邊桌，活邊木躺椅以及B＆B Italia和Minotti的其他家具。與Ken Smith Workshop合作完成的美化工作具有狂野，未經修剪和柔軟的感覺。
Figured metal walls on both sides ofElectric Lemon, the hotel’s restaurant and bar, reflect the light sculpture suspended from the Sky Lobby, creating depth and an infinity-effect. Seating in the restaurant (level 24) was selected to promote all-day work/dining, with a mix of comfortable low/medium height seating and tables. A two-toned bar is transformational, with a back bar that rotates during the day to conceal liquor and encourage a healthy lifestyle. Anoutdoor terrace connected to the restaurant has a covered seating area, bar, and a sleek black reflecting pool. A lawn area to the west has views of the Hudson. The light stone palette has dark accents, with live-edge stone tables, live-edge wood loungers, and other furniture from B&B Italia and Minotti. Landscaping, done in collaboration with Ken Smith Workshop, has a wild, un-manicured, and soft feel.
