An Eco-Conscious Hotel in New York

July 26, 2012

Located on Grand Street, at the crossroads of Soho and Tribeca, The James in New York (designed by the Office for Design and Architecture in collaboration with Perkins Eastman) focuses on sustainability and community: the interiors, designed by Amanda Sullivan, feature reclaimed wood, all-natural fabrics, and a tri-tiered urban garden designed by Rebecca Cole.

In a nod to the neighborhood, there is an on-site art gallery, and the books in the lobby and guestrooms are from Printed Matter, the non-profit art book publisher. The work of local designers, including fixtures by one of our favorite lighting designers, Lindsay Adelman, can be seen throughout the hotel. Oh, and there is a hybrid car service on offer. Go to The James for more information and Rebecca Cole for more from her portfolio.
