Ambiente is comprised of 40 cubed-shaped guest Atriums that are elevated above the ground by steel piers and constructed using floor-to-ceiling, bronze-tinted glass and matte-charcoal and rusted metal.
At dusk, the tinted glass reflects the nature around it creating stunning, mirrored silhouettes. The Atriums’ sleek and contemporary design embodies elegant minimalism and the utmost in luxurious accommodations.
Designed by award-winning, Scottsdale-based ASUL Architects, Ambiente will be constructed around the natural vegetation and topography, requiring less cut and fill, which better meets today’s expectations of being responsible land stewards. The pier-method to building Ambiente’s Atriums basically eliminates the need to grade the land. During construction, this pier technique allows each Atrium to be rotated and individually hand-placed at very specific angles to fit, as best as possible, within the existing trees and flora, thereby maximizing the views.
From a RadicalInnovationAward.com release:
This Volumetric High-Rise Modular Hotel will be the world’s tallest modular hotel and one of the most stylish, combining modular efficiency with architectural flair. AC by Marriott at 842 6th Avenue, New York City, will be the tallest modular hotel in the world when it opens in early 2020. But it won’t just be a step up for modular design, it will be a step forward. The building leverages the advantages of modular construction, uses cutting-edge proprietary technology to address potential drawbacks, and, most importantly, put to rest the idea that a modular building can only be the sum of its factory-made parts.
It’s stylish and architecturally expressive. The perfect marriage of modular construction and inventive architectural design, this Manhattan AC points the way to the future by using accelerated design processes through VR software and off-site quality control to streamline the building process for builders anywhere in the world. DF&A and its tech partner patented a “Time Machine” technology that trains 3D cameras on each module at five different points in the construction process, so that clients, contractors, and architects can keep an eye on what’s being built.
From a Dezeen.com online review:
Guests are able to check themselves in at the Yabu Pushelberg-designed reception behind the flower store – forming part of the Moxy’s stripped-back approach to hospitality. Desks hang down from the ceiling while neon signs flash slogans related to flowers.
As with the Moxy Times Square, the firm’s design uses custom furnishings to make the most of the limited space. Each room features built-in wooden beds, which range from king, queen, double and bunk beds depending on the layout.
Chairs and tables can be folded away and hung from wooden wall pegs, which are also used to hang clothes in lieu of cabinets. Additional storage drawers are slotted underneath the beds.
Yabu Pushelberg and Rockwell Group have created a mix of floral and zany bars, restaurants, workspaces, and space-saving bedrooms inside this New York hotel.
Developed by Lightstone, the 349-room hotel is the latest outpost of Moxy – a subsidiary of hospitality company Marriott that aims to be affordable without compromising on style.
