The Cooper Square Hotel is a new modern glass and steel tower in the Bowery section of New York City designed by Carlos Zapata Studio. While some liken the building’s image to a “shark’s fin” or to “Dubai on the Bowery”, Zapata says the inspiration for the building was literally a face starting small at the neck and widening upwards, with the intention of giving the building a very distinctive personality.


The 21-storey, 145-room hotel, dubbed “Downtown Luxury” by its owner/developer, has an open plan with a modern European feel. The main public spaces include a library with a bar and fireplace, an intimate screening room, and a destination restaurant, the first in New York for celebrated Los Angeles-based chef Govind Armstrong. The hotel’s interior organization and circulation plan is inspired by the small courtyards of the East village. There are several small intimate spaces on the back of the building and one can access the second floor bar without having to go into the lobby, forming a continuous loop between the many intimate spaces inside and outside the building.


Noted Italian designer Antonio Citterio designed the interiors and furnishings are by B & B Italia. The Italian design motif extends to the guest rooms where the beds are outfitted with 400-count Italian Anichini-brand linens and comforters and the baths are tiled with Italian glass mosaics.

Sail Tower: Kempinski Hotel & serviced residences, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia


This 240m high, 60-storey tower has 242 luxury hotel rooms and 104 serviced apartments and condominiums and a GSM of 62,791m2. This mix is orientated to maximise views of the water, and stacked so that balcony size and depth increase with height. This in combination with balcony sails and LED fixtures means the night-time appearance of the elevation can be programmed. The judges felt that this project was architecturally complete in the fullest sense. The relationship of parts to whole and building elements to overall appearance provides a convincing case that tall building design has continuing levels of sophistication latent in its future development. Taken as the relationship of parts to whole, an example of this is the way in which the upward sweep of the pattern on the elevations is informed by the module changes which are in turn the consequence of changing apartment size.
