Marc Freud Troutbrook FFIS Brooklyn AtriumThis hotel was designed to create a contemporary and clean, yet timeless hotel. A monochromatic palette was chosen contrasted by touches of red and eye-catching shapes.

The use of natural materials such as wood, stone and weathered steel reflects Brooklyn's industrial aesthetic; combined with the management of the lighting, and attention to detail, the result becomes a unique and sophisticate urban hotel.

The main pieces such as the front desk, market, breakfast buffet, bookcase and coffee station were specially designed as a cohesive collection for this hotel. The use of American black walnut wood, weathered steel and white stone added extra dimension of authenticity on every space.

“We wanted to create a hotel with an especially personalized and individual character; a hotel as a destination itself creating unique spaces for the contemporary traveler”. (Cecilia Reboursin, interior designer in collaboration with Arlene Somer of Troutbrook)
