Winning proposal for Tablet. Rething Hotels ideas competition.
Create a hotel social areas that connects travelers and locals.
What we are proposing is an architectural challenge, but also an experiment in human psychology. Many a hotelier has gone broke chasing an elusive crowd, and many a “hip hotel” has alienated its following with lazy (or greedy) gimmicks. A rigorously enforced guest list can create a buzz for a while, but it always fades when interesting people find themselves on the outside looking in. In today’s hotel business, the word “exclusive” is bandied about as a posh way of saying “really nice.” Nobody ever stops to ask who’s being excluded, and why. It’s all rather unbecoming, for an industry which purports to be about hospitality.
Creating a Mix-Zones for visitors and locals;
The maximal mixing of all possible types of relaxation;
The multi-functional space for the all socializing activities possible:
dancing, playing table hockey, beer festival, karaoke, etc.
There is everything for an unforgettable evening:
Glass rooftop swimming pool, skyline bar, sky restaurant, dancing, cocktails, spa.
Connecting Rooftop is a space for socialization of locals and hotel guests and a great party.The roof itself has always a positive energy, plus - panoramic views of Manhattan.The roof will be made in the forms of digital morphogenesis, which will look really cool.Every day Connecting Rooftop features RoofFest - everyday festival and celebration. The concept is flexible - you can design iconic roof on a new building, or you can build concept on the existing one.
