BEST HOTEL FOCUSED SERVICE

CITADINES CONNECT
FIFTH AVENUE NEW YORK
DESIGN FIRM: TPG Architecture,

New York
THE COMMISSION: Re-imagine the

former Hotel Central Fifth Avenue New
York as The Ascott Limited's debut Citadines hotel in the U.S. Craft a flagship
that will embody the brand and serve
as a showcase for investors interested
in planting this aparthotel flag in other
North American cities such as Boston, Los
Angeles, San Francisco and Washington,
D.C. Strike the right balance between the
residential feel of a Manhattan townhouse
and a perfect place to connect with the
vitality of the city.
THE CHARRETTE: Like the city that

never sleeps-and like people's own
houses, this 21-story high-rise hotel
had to design in round-the-clock

appeal. The lobby makes space for a
24-hour grab-n-go deli corner positioned temptingly close to the the
communal table in the "dining room" so
that guests can nosh while they work
or socialize as they would at home.
THE CHALLENGE: Be proactive in
breaking down barriers. A lobby-spanning window seat softened with an
assortment of pillows gives guests a
comfortable vantage point for enjoying
the urban lifestyle outside. Clear sightlines from the gathering area around
the fireplace to the oversized community table mimic a modern townhouse's
open plan and easy walk patterns. A
rich seating mix encourages out-oftowners and locals to interact.
THE CARRY-OUT: Don't fill in the

blanks. "The open-fronted casegoods
make the rooms seem larger," says Alec
Zaballero, TPG's managing executive.
They also underscore the home-awayfrom-home intent by keeping guests'
personal items front and center.

DESIGN FIRM: ALT-254, Hong Kong
THE COMMISSION: Introduce a cool new micro-living brand to Queen's Road

Central. Use the good bones of what was the sister-branded Ovolo Noho as the
starting point for a work/stay/eat/drink/socialize destination with 56 accommodations, a menu of shared and private room offers, and flexible spaces that could
morph to anticipate what travelers will want next.
THE CHARRETTE: Explore a circulation pattern and a multifunctional design

approach that would lead guests (and locals) through nearly every square inch of
the public space. Market the hotel's cool-kid image to the street with a largely glass
fa├žade that reveals the interiors' wash of bright neon lighting and bold graphics.
Narrow down the entry so no one can pass up the bar that does double-duty as
the check-in desk. Draw attention to the second floor by bilocating the Te Quiero
Mucho restaurant over two levels. A space adjacent to the bar tempts people
with the colors and aromas of culinary connectors such as shared nacho and taco
platters, while a stairway leads to additional seating, a refreshment bar, a shared
kitchen and additional working and lounge areas one flight up. Guests can work
off steam or get their Zen on in the coworking-out room (read: gym) on floor 3.
THE CARRY-OUT: Cut time, not corners. ALT-254 had less than six months to complete

the design and construction. It was tech to the rescue. "By creating a virtual version of the
property, the Ovolo Hotels Group founder was able to walk through the yet-to-be-built
hotel in the comfort of his own office," says Vincent McIlduff, ALT-254's founding partner
and ceo. Revisions were made in that collaborative atmosphere, which preserved the
integrity of the concept and prevented costly, time-sucking change orders.
