Combining unique design and a blend of elegance and comfort,
The main wooden terrace on the second floor of SkyRoom
To unify the space, renowned architect Stephen B. Jacobs and affiliate interior designer Andi Pepper, who are widely known for their work with the Gansevoort, Library and Giraffe hotels, created a coffered ceiling featuring LED lighting that will serve as a stylized abstraction of Times Square – mimicking an aerial view of the intersection of Broadway and 7th Avenue.
For the entrance space, the team drew inspiration from photographs of streaming taillights in moving traffic, which is reflected in the colored light installation of the backlit bar.
The interior and exterior spaces of the venue are thoughtfully designed, incorporating exciting and eccentric elements to provide an enhanced nightlife experience sure to leave a memorable impression on anyone who steps through the Sky Room ®’s elevator doors.
The bar is positioned so that the unobstructed view of the NYC skyline serves as a breathtaking backdrop.
These elements aim to create a firm link between the Sky Room ® and Times Square.
“The challenge was to unify all the various spaces spanning over 2 buildings.
We met the challenge using the pulsating rhythm of Times Square as our inspiration.”
Jacobs and Pepper employed a carefully selected mix of hard and soft materials to control the acoustics and brought in custom made furniture, designed specifically for the space.
