*미국 뉴욕 타임스퀘어 AC호텔의 루프탑바 - Castell rooftop bar by BHDM offers cosy setting with Midtown Manhattan views

미국의 디자인 스튜디오 BHDM은 뉴욕의 타임 스퀘어(Times Square) 근처 AC 호텔의 상단에 위치한 이 바 내부에 따뜻한 소재와 스페인식 모티프를 선택했다. 도시의 옥상 바에 최근 추가 된 것 중 하나인 Castell은 Helpern Architects가 설계하여 2018년 여름을 오픈한 Marriott 소유의 루프탑 바이다. 엘리베이터를 타고 탑층에 도착한 손님들은 거실과 같이 아늑한 공간에 도착하게 되는데, 그 이유는 바의 내부는 웜톤의 호두색 벽과 부드러운 가구를 이용하여 넉넉한 분위기를 자아내고 또한 주변을 관망할 수 있는 거대한 벽난로 주변의 공간을 제공하기 때문이다.

American design studio BHDM has chosen warm materials and Spanish-influenced motifs for the interior of this bar, located at the top of the AC Hotel near New York's Times Square.


One of the latest additions to the city's array of rooftop bars, Castell occupies the top level of the Marriott-owned hotel, which was designed by Helpern Architects and opened Summer 2018.

The new building is positioned directly opposite Renzo Piano's New York Times tower, and among Midtown's dense cluster of skyscrapers, providing dramatic views from its lofty windows.


BHDM Design founder Dan Mazzarini was responsible for the bar's interiors, which he envisioned as "a warm and sexy rooftop living room lounge with strong geometric influences, inspired by the vaults and shapes of Spanish architecture".

As a result, an 11-foot-tall (3.4-metre) arch is used as repeated motif throughout the space, acting as doorways, mirrors, and a backdrop for the bar counter.

"Through a series of rooms and geometric vignettes, BHDM designed Castell to be the premier Midtown rooftop destination," said a project description from the studio.

After exiting the elevators, visitors arrive in a cosy space styled like a living room. Walls lined in warm-toned walnut and plenty of soft furnishings create an intimate atmosphere, aided by a large fireplace that offers a view through to the bar area next door.

This adjacent, larger space is lighter and brighter, thanks to windows on both sides. Bar stools run along the south-facing stretch, where guests can enjoy drinks while gazing up at the Empire State Building.
