At the corner of Kenmare and Elizabeth Streets, The Nolitan is the first luxury boutique hotel in Manhattan to open in this authentic New York City neighborhood. The Nolitan Hotel combines luxurious downtown living with luxury boutique hotel services and amenities to create a distinct New York City experience. This NYC boutique hotel offers accommodations, intuitive service and the comforts of home. And with only 57 rooms, we will take very good care of you.
It was Grzywinski+Pons intention for the hotel to act as architectural and programmatic connective tissue joining the northern and southern parts of the district.
Within the guest rooms themselves Grzywinski+Pons alternated channel glass with fully transparent panels centered on dramatic sightlines. By using a low iron glass they avoided the melancholic effect of northern light with a greenish cast and instead the frostiness fortifies the daylight for a bright cheerful effect. Privacy and/or views can be maintained without sacrificing daylighting.
The material palette for the entire project was chosen to be elemental rather than a surface treatment and the intention is that – with use and age – the materials will develop a patina or richness rather than become shabby. The exterior is comprised largely of terraced terra cotta shingles, exposed concrete, glass and wood. Grzywinski+Pons carried some of the same materials (and all of the same philosophy) to the interiors.
