SIXTY SoHo New York
Client SIXTY Hotels Location SoHo, New York, USA Completed 2014
SIXTY SoHo is SIXTY Hotels’ flagship hotel and the originator of the SIXTY brand. Following on from the success of Belgraves, Tara Bernerd & Partners was invited by the Pomeranc brothers to redesign the lobbies, bar and all 96 bedrooms of this iconic and much loved New York hotel. The resulting interiors showcase Bernerd’s ‘home-away-from-home’ philosophy.
Drawing upon the hotel’s downtown location, a palette of woods, concrete and and glass pays homage to the urban environment whilst rich fabrics and subtle lighting create warmth and texture. Bernerd also introduced White Cube, the contemporary art gallery in London, and their artist Harland Miller to the Pomeranc team, commissioning a unique series of sketches and studies for each of the guest bedrooms. Perhaps the biggest transformation, however, was opening up the lobby areas by introducing floor-to-ceiling Crittall windows that bring typical Manhattan vistas into play.
