Denniston Architects has converted New York City's Crown Building in the heart of bustling Midtown into a space for the Aman Resorts luxury hotel group.
Aman New York hotel opened in August 2022 in a beaux-arts building at 57th Street and Fifth Avenue completed in 1921 by Warren & Wetmore – the architecture studio behind Grand Central Terminal.
Jean-Michel Gathy and his studio Denniston Architects, which is frequently tapped for Aman locations, restored and converted the 25-storey tower to create 82 suites and 22 residences.
To create a feeling of quiet and relaxation in the middle of New York City, elements like glass soundproofing were combined with a muted, minimalist colour and material palette throughout the building.
Gold details were also added throughout as a nod to its ornamental spire.
"Every detail of the design effortlessly contributes to Aman New York's aura of rarefied calm," said Aman Resorts.
