HY36, A Crowne Plaza Hotel

New York, NY


This 28-story, 251-key new hotel building, located in the Hudson Yards district of Manhattan’s West Side, features a soaring 80-foot high atrium space as its centerpiece. The hotel’s lobby and TGA,a hip, upscale sports bar-inspired restaurant, share this dramatic galvanized steel truss-framed space. Clad in corrugated aluminum, the building’s metallic aesthetic celebrates the neighborhood’s industrial and transportation hub heritage, all while producing a play of light and shadow on the building’s deeply modulated surfaces. The building entrances and the glass garage-door fronted dining room are topped by a unique 60-foot wide slender glass canopy supported solely by a lacy spider’s web of stainless steel cables.
