Yabu Pushelberg designed all 612 bedrooms at The Moxy Times Square – a subsidiary of hospitality company Marriott that aims to be affordable without compromising style, pitted as a “boutique-hotel concept for the modern traveller”.

The hotel opened last year in a renovated property in Midtown Manhattan, which was built in 1907 to offer cheap accommodation to working class travellers. Architectural design firm Stonehill Taylor was responsible for reconfiguring the layout.
