"The Financial District is one of the most iconic destinations in the world and it was a lot of fun telling its story through design."
New York, NY (PRWEB) February 08, 2016
Renowned New York City-based architectural and interior design firm, Glen & Company Architecture has designed the interiors of the new Four Points by Sheraton hotel in Downtown, Manhattan. Glen Coben, founder of Glen & Co., along with his team of designers collaborated with Starwood Hotels & Resorts to ensure that the interiors of architect Nobutaka Ashihara-designed, 261-room hotel reflected the essence of the Four Points brand, giving guests a unique bespoke design with the sensibility of a boutique hotel.
Developed by The Lam Group, Glen & Co. designed the interiors of the downtown Four Points hotel to reflect the bustling neighborhood of the Financial District and the fascination the historic destination brings to people’s lives. Mr. Coben and his team transcend the thrill of the iconic Financial District through his innovative design of the hotel’s guest rooms and public spaces including a full service restaurant, two roof top bars, and fitness center, among other central areas.
“It was a great opportunity to work with the Starwood Four Points team in the design of this downtown hotel,” said Glen Coben. “The Financial District is one of the most iconic destinations in the world and it was a lot of fun telling its story through design.”
The design of the hotel channels the power brokers and the child-like thrill of experiencing a banking hall for the first time. Reclaimed safe deposit boxes line one wall of the lobby, while another wall has an oversized black and white photograph of a giant safe door embedded in glass. A ticker follows its own path as if recreating a graph of stocks rising and falling. Custom-designed elements include wallpaper depicting stacked bars of silver, carpeting inspired by glen plaid suiting, and fabric tailored furniture.
Glen & Co. Architecture current projects focus on the design, development, and implementation of several value-oriented hotel, restaurant and commercial developments. Mr. Coben and his team continue to challenge brand standards, redesigning them to meet the demands of urban locations. Recent work includes boutique Hotel Archer New York, Gabriel Kreuther, David Burke Fabrick, the James Beard Award-winning Bâtard and Carbone.
