When creating a hotel in the centre of the madhouse of 50th Street and Broadway at Time square NY, you can only have two options:
Either go quiet and create a silent hub OR make a nonstop party house that grasps the neighborhoods energy.
The newly opened CitizenM, the first in the US of the European chain based in the Netherlands comes to put a new spirit in the staying.
The architecture and interior Amsterdam-based firm Concrete created an art building with ample lobby for lounging, dining and lap-toping furnished all in Vitra furniture.
The 230 room hotel offers things in a complete new way to guests, including:
—self check-in a 24-hour grab & go cafeteria
—a lobby that acts as a central hub with an over-sized living room design
—26 foot ceilings and bookshelves with books from the leading creative bookstore MENDO,showcasing eclectic art from around the world.
