Ace is the Place



KADA BIH
za kraci boravak u Njujorku birala hotel, mislim da bi izbor pao na Ace Hotel.

Ace se nalazi u ne toliko sarmantnom Midtownu (20 W 29th St) ali super je zgodno pozicioniran ako zelite da vam sve bude racvasto nadomak ruke. Metro stanica iz coska. Jedan u lancu, njujorski Ace se uselio u lokalnu staru zgradu. Ovo nije neki prenapucani preskupi bullshiterski dizajnerski hotel. Roman&Williams su osmislili enterijer hotela i svake sobe pojedinacno koristeci green, sustainable, eco friendly elemente, nesto vintage i recikliranih stvari. Njihov dizajn opisuju kao bohemian, organic and hip.

Tipovi soba predstavljeni sa po par fotki specifican su style guide i mogu pomoci kao inspiracija za prociscavanje malog zivotnog prostora, komprimovanje i sazimanje, upravo kao sto se na istu temu svasta moze nauciti i na osnovu japanskih domova. Posle Njujorka i Tokija, stan od 45 kvadrata potpuno mi je normalno, logicno resenje, potrebno i dovoljno mi se pretumbalo u glavi. Realno, koliko coskova u prosecnom beogradskom stanu od 60-70 kvadrata trune klaterovano gomilom necega sto se ne koristi? E pa, dragi moji, to se zove luksuz.

Sobe Ace Hotela neodoljivo me podsecaju na nas njujorski stan na Lower East Side-u. Uvek bih vam preporucila da stan nadjete preko craigslist, ali treba to neko i da chekira live, da vidi kakav je kraj, gazda/rica. Anyway, evo kako to pakuju njujorcani:





Bela keramika i retro zlatne slavine... yum.

Dodatni chic hotelu daje Breslin bar, podruznica restorana Spotted Pig, jednog od mesta iz carstva celebrity chefa Maria Batalija. Home page Breslina neodoljivo me podseca na moj set plakata za izlozbu o Cika Jovi Zmaju, te mi je dusi blizak i na keca svarljiv. Therefore, to bi moglo biti dobro mesto za snack (bez prasetine za mene, pa makar i pegave, thank you very much), therefore, jos jedan + za Ace Hotel.

Evo, Breslin home page gore, Cika Jova Zmaj - dole. Ha! Super.



plus, par divnih fotki iz Breslina na Sunday Suppers, i par reci od nekoga ko je tamo zapravo bio, u svom obozavanju na daljinu cesto se zanesem a objektivnost nestane u oblaku ushicenja...

IF I CHOSE a hotel for a short stay in NYC, I think I'd pick Ace Hotel.

Ace is situated in not so charming NYC's Midtown (20 W 29th St), but it's a super neat place for you to get everywhere quickly. One of the four Ace Hotels in USA, this one moved in the neighborhoods's historical building. And this is not some regular overpriced bullshity designer hotel. Roman&Williams created the interiors atmosphere using green, sustainable, Eco friendly elements, some vintage and recycled stuff. Their design for this hotel is described as bohemian, organic and hip.

The room types are presented with a few pics and they make a specific style guide that can be a huge inspiration for uncluttered personal living spaces, cleaning your average small condo, the same way you can learn a lot from Japanese homes. After our visits to New York and Tokyo, I find the 40 square meters apt just fine to live in. I mean, I know a whole bunch of 60 to 70m² apartments that have a few clogged spots filled with the things you actually never use anymore. Dear all, that is called luxury.

Ace Hotel's rooms remind me of "our" lovely Lower East Side place. I'd always recommend you to find a place to stay in NYC via craigslist, but you know it's much cooler if you're lucky enough to have somebody check the place, the hood and the landlord. Anyway, here's how New Yorkers pack the cribs: see images

White ceramics and vintage gilded pipes... yum.

Breslin bar adds even more to this place. A branch of the Spotted Pig, one of Mario Batali's joints. Breslin's home page reminds me so much of the designs I made for the exhibition about life and work of this lovely poet. So, Breslin has that familiar feel for me, therefore, another plus for Ace Hotel. Here it is, Breslin upper image, my design's detail, lower one. Great!

plus, a few lovely images from the Breslin at Sunday Suppers, and a note from the place, since I enjoy from the distance I get carried away adoring...
