The Renwick

New York, NY

Architecture, Interior Design

Originally built as an extended stay hotel for artists, intellectuals, and literary figures, The Renwick was renovated and rebranded by Stonehill Taylor. Utilizing the hotel’s rich artistic history as a springboard for the design concept, the team crafted the loft-style, 173-guestrooms around the idea of a modern artist’s or writer’s studio. The public spaces are marked by bespoke design and art elements, including a dramatic poured terrazzo element and a wall installation of silhouetted human forms made of wire, strings and nails adorns the walls of the entry. The Renwick is a new kind of destination in Manhattan’s Midtown East neighborhood.
