The international acclaimed architecture and interior design firm Yabu Pushelberg has completed the interiors for the Four Seasons hotel in Downtown Manhattan. The top interior designers are applauded for the finest hotel projects around the world.
The Four Seasons Downtown New York is housed in a tower also known as 30 Park Place, completed by American architect Robert A M Stern in 2016. The 185-room luxury hotel is located on the lower floors, with 157 private residences accommodated on top.
Yabu Pushelberg was invited to do the interior design project for the three lowest levels that hold the guest amenities, and the hotel bedrooms above. For the iconic Four Seasons, the design duo used dark wood in the public spaces and soft colors in the guest rooms.
The modern hotel has its own astounding entrance on the ground floor, where visitors enter through a pair of giant glass doors. On the same flour are the lobby and a business center, which are separated into a series of smaller spaces that include lounges and a coffee bar.
“Diverting from a more traditional layout, asymmetry is embraced, and provides a reoccurring theme throughout the hotel,” said Yabu Pushelberg. “Breaking up a harder architectural shell, furnishings, custom rugs and accessories in muted jewel tones soften the overall space.”
The studio chose dark wood to panel walls and columns, which is softened by lighter upholstery and travertine stone flooring. They designed a bespoke desk formed from horizontal layers of stone sits in front of tall lavender-colored curtains.
“In the ballroom, a sculptural installation forms a canopy of light, a loose interpretation of a tree canopy, above a custom carpet pattern that suggests shadows below,” said the studio.
Typical bedrooms also feature soft hues, used across furniture pieces, patterned carpets, and textured fabrics. “The standard room combines a sense of entry, a layering of architectural elements and luxury furniture with a bespoke design to provide a warm, residential quality,” Yabu Pushelberg said.
