Manhattan-based Grzywinski+Pons have designed the Nolitan, a new hotel located on Kenmare Street. This new 55-room boutique hotel is true to its name, occupying the Nolita neighborhood in New York City. For most non-New Yorkers who don't know (and more than a few New Yorkers for that matter), Nolita stands for "north of Little Italy," a downtown neighborhood known for its eccentric style and nightlife.
Designed to accent the surrounding buildings, and immerse guests into the neighborhood, a glass facade on the first floor and several rooms allow the street to permeate into the luxurious interiors. The Nolitan is scheduled to open for business on August 1, 2011, and boasts ellabess, the new restaurant from chef Troy Unruh, and a library curated by Phaidon Books.
