TWA Hotel

Jamaica, NY

Interior Design

The highly-anticipated TWA Hotel at New York’s JFK Airport will open its doors within the next year. Stonehill Taylor is the exclusive interior designer for the 512 rooms, housed in the two newly built wings designed by architects Beyer Blinder Belle and Lubrano Ciavarra, flanking Eero Saarinen’s iconic TWA Flight Center. Stonehill Taylor was inspired by the year 1962 — it’s the year the Flight Center opened and the first time an American was able to orbit the Earth. At this time, aviation was the promise of the future, and so in many ways, this year signifies the beginning of an era of American strength, optimism and innovation. By offering a modern refuge with a thoughtful, strong sense of design and space, the rooms are meant to make guests feel the same appreciation and excitement for aviation that travelers once felt during the rise of the industry.
