The other day we had a first look at the newly opened 11 Howard hotel off Howard and Lafayette Streets in SoHo. The hotel, a venture of New York real estate developer Aby Rosen, is fittingly tucked into the fold of SoHo’s trendiest cafes and design haunts. (Oliver Gustav has a shop in the building; BDDW and Henrybuilt are around the corner.)
The building was reworked by Romanian architect Anda Andrei with interiors by Danish studio Space Copenhagen (the studio’s first New York project). The communal spaces and 221 guest rooms are designed to feel residential, with Scandinavian oiled oak furniture, brass lighting, and subtle dashes of color. Here’s a closer look.
