POP-UP HOTEL

POP-UP HOTEL. Speculative renovation of 548 W22nd St. iconic arts building as pop-up business hotel for Boardroom B+B, a corporation invented by artists Chloe + TJ. More info on Boardroom B+B website. The design utilizes the existing interior, complete with exposed masonry, concrete beams, and high ceilings, to develop a narrative of cultural clientele continuing the art world tradition of repurposing Chelsea’s industrial building stock for high-end post-industrial services. Extensive programming – including bar, conference rooms, and auditorium – are built onto the roof level with the addition of fabric coverings and storefront glazing, to achieve the necessary density of business amenities. Additional small conference rooms are built around the glazed elevator at each level. Spring 2011.
