The Standard Hotel, New York City, NY, USA
Design: Todd Schliemann, Polshek Partnership
The Standard Hotel New York
Sculptural piers, whose forms clearly separate the building from the orthogonal street grid, raise the building fifty-seven feet off the street, allowing the horizontally-scaled industrial landscape to pass beneath it and natural light to penetrate to the street. The two slabs are “hinged,” angled to further emphasize the building’s distinction from the city’s grid and its levitation above the neighborhood. The low-scale environment affords the building unique visibility from all directions and unobstructed 360° views of the city from the building.
