In Construction: Located in the heart of Brooklyn, this new boutique hotel weaves together the textures and cultural artifacts of its surroundings into an urban oasis.The clean, rectilinear building volume slices through an irregular lot. In doing so, the negative spaces become reinterpretations of neighboring vacant construction sites, using native weeds to create winding gardens. The interior spaces use references to raw construction sites to juxtapose dramatic volumes with tiny, hidden spaces to be explored by visitors.
