领先的建筑和设计工作室罗克韦尔集团（Rockwell Group）刚刚在纽约哈德逊广场（Hudson Yards）揭幕了第一家Equinox酒店的设计。罗克韦尔集团的成立是为了帮助Equinox重新定义豪华酒店的体验，以此无缝扩展高性能生活方式。 Equinox Hotels适合忙碌的旅行者，他们希望他们的旅行适应他们现有的整体健康生活方式而不会受到干扰。
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.
一楼的大堂以有趣，高冲击力，精美的材料以意想不到的方式使用，从而树立了项目的基调。大堂和“天空大厅”（第25级）包括受委托的艺术装置，这些装置可发挥光的变化力量，并设置在有图案的反光金属背景前，为艺术品增添了戏剧性和深度感。 Sky Lobby处的定制灯具是到达后接待和礼宾区的直接背景，并延伸到楼梯上方，通往下方的双层高餐厅。
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.
树脂和石材接待/礼宾服务台区域设计为浮动雕塑物品和艺术品，低矮的豪华沙发座位立即吸引人。这些公共场所的每个表面都是豪华的：Sky Lobby的黑色石材地板；威尼斯石膏天花板；走廊和双高柱上的书籍匹配的微板木板；定制开发的有图形的反射金属覆层，可改变剪力墙；具有定制丝和金属线织物的玻璃面板；高处都是石材基地。 Sky Lobby的休息区延伸至下方餐厅上方的座位，并享有船只的景致，将酒店与哈德逊广场的住所相连。
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.
酒店餐厅和酒吧“ Electric Lemon”两侧的金属墙都反射出悬挂在Sky Lobby上的轻盈雕塑，营造出深度和无限效果。选择餐厅的座位（24级）以促进全天工作/就餐，并结合了舒适的中低高度座位和桌子。两色调的酒吧具有变革性，而后酒吧则在白天旋转以隐藏酒水并促进健康的生活方式。连接到餐厅的室外露台设有带顶棚的休息区，酒吧和光滑的黑色反射池。西边的草坪区享有哈德逊河的景色。浅色石材色调带有深色调，配有活边桌，活边木躺椅以及B＆B Italia和Minotti的其他家具。与Ken Smith Workshop合作完成的美化工作具有狂野，未经修剪和柔软的感觉。
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.
