Space Copenhagen wins three 'AHEAD' America Awards
11 HOWARD WINS THREE ‘AHEAD’ AMERICA AWARDS
SPACE Copenhagen receives three awards at the inaugural AHEAD America Awards last week for their work on the hotel 11 Howard, New York in the categories ‘Hotel Renovation & Restoration’, ‘Lobby & Public Spaces’ and ‘Suite’.
Using enduring principles of Scandinavian design combined with boundary-breaking creative modernism, SPACE Copenhagen has worked with Creative Director Anda Andrei to fill 11 Howard with beautiful materials and meticulously selected objects.
SPACE Copenhagen has designed 11 Howard to feel residential: more like a home than a hotel. Its furniture creates an atmosphere of ease and informality. The studio has consciously crafted each space so that a sense of congruity between furniture and interior is felt throughout the hotel. Judges across the board highly commended 11 Howard for its successful, holistic design exploration resulting in a landmark addition to the New York City hotel scene. The renovation is a “seamless blending of exterior to interior” where the combination of “rooms, public area, retail, and F&B are thoughtfully weave together as one story.”
In 11 Howard’s bar, The Blond, Space Copenhagen used dark woods and gold metals to create a seductive yet edgy environment. The fluid design allows for The Blond to be warm and welcoming for guests during the day, transform into an elegant bar space in the evening, and morph into a nightclub after midnight.
Next to The Blond is The Library, which features furniture SPACE Copenhagen designed for manufacturers including Mater, Stellarworks, &Tradition, GUBI and Fredericia. These pieces are accented by wide wood floorboards, plush area rugs, and one-of-a-kind furniture commissioned by SPACE Copenhagen from around the world.
