Simplicity comes along with refine design and ambition is hand-in-hand with the satisfaction of making something born again. An old factory, from 1901, was converted into a hotel, by the hands of Jed Walentas. Brooklyn is the place and Wythe Hotel, the name.
The industrial outlines were kept and many of the rooms still have brick walls. Cast-iron columns, the entrance and the arched windows are some of the things that the owner chose to maintain. The strong character of the hotel follows the roots of Brooklyn history and the surrounding environment completes it. This inspiration is steeped into the genius design and decoration of the hotel.
The feeling of jumping into the industrial revolution is immediately. And there are obvious reasons for that. The vintage inspiration of some decoration objects and the simplicity of the design respect the original features.
This industry-chic concept underlines the sense of place and there’s no room for disappointment. The golden details, the white textiles and the soft decoration are a journey through the last decade.
The flavor of Williamsburg passes behind the windows and the landscape is drawn by the typical Brooklyn view. Some walls still have the hand-painted logos of the factory and the restoration is the main guide line of its edification.
If you’re ready for a hipster, vintage and luxe adventure, then Wythe Hotel is your destination. If you’re just passing by and not staying for the night, you can go the bar or the restaurant that also follow this character from the factory era. If our century is the place for another industrial revolution, maybe Wythe Hotel is the main character of it
