W HOTEL (New York, USA)
The goal for architecture and interior design firm
BBG-BBGM was to create an urban oasis for the new
guestrooms and specialty suites at the W Hotel.
Taking guests away from the jungle that is the streets
of New York, BBG-BBGM incorporated soothing colours
and textures inspired by nature to enhance the sense of
relaxation and respite.
The guestroom beds are designed to reflect a sleek,
adult version of an idyllic childhood treehouse, wrapped
in exotic zebrawood and featuring a custom-designed
headboard with a backlit, artfully abstract photo.
The duplex "Wow" suites at the W certainly live up
to their name -- each one features a double-height
ceiling and a second-storey loft bedroom.
Custom furnishings adorn the suites, including high-
backed, plush throne chairs with matching ottomans, a
pair of undulating pool-shaped bronze co ee tables,
pendant-shaped hanging lamps inspired by Indian water
vessels and irregularly shaped wood console tables.
And just when you thought there couldn't be anything
better than "wow", along come the "Extreme
These suites have large, wrap-around outdoor
terraces with stunning city views.
Outdoor space is highly coveted in New York,
so BBG-BBGM honed in on the exterior,
complementing the space with its interior.
Elegant teak flooring provides the base for
a luxurious furniture set including a large daybed with
a "sunbrella" cover, solid cedar cocoon chairs with raw
finishes and a perforated, concentric ottoman.
