The 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge in New York was designed to bring the surrounding park into the building, says architect Jonathan Marvel in this movie Dezeen filmed for the AHEAD hospitality awards.
Designed by Marvel Architects, the hotel stands alongside the Brooklyn Bridge Park, with views of the bridge and across the East River to Manhattan. The property has been nominated in seven categories at the AHEAD Americas awards, which will take place in Miami this week.
According to Marvel, 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge was designed to seamlessly blend the experience of being in a hotel with that of the surrounding parkland.
“The hotel had to be designed in a way that allowed you to be part of the park, and everything in the hotel is themed around the park,” says Marvel in the movie, which Dezeen filmed at his New York office.
“There’s a plant in every room. There’s filtered water, there’s no bottled water, so we’re really operating in a sustainable way.”
