Hotel Americano by Enrique Norten
Located on West 27th Street between 10th and 11th Avenues, the Hotel Americano sits on what is one of New York’s most active gallery streets by day and vibrant club scenes by night. The facade of the hotel directly reflects this dichotomy. The hotel floors are set back from the street behind a stainless steel mesh screen, with catwalks between.
This screen will create a much needed buffer between the street side hotel rooms and the all night activity of the bars and clubs below, while providing the hotel, restaurant and club with an iconic, highly recognizable public face. The program includes 56-room, a roof deck with a pool, bar, and garden terrace, which alleviate the surrounding concrete jungle with reflective surfaces, water, greenery, and views of the cityscape.
This project was executed by TEN Arquitectos, which brings over 25 years of experience in architecture and urban planning to the team. TEN Arquitectos is committed to using the most effective, appealing, and highest quality materials. The firm embraces a language of light materials, complex forms and daring techniques. LEED certified architects combine that focus with a keen understanding and practice of sustainable design.
