Global architecture and interiors firm HOK was charged with the redesign of the InterContinental New York Barclay Hotel, an 87-year-old property located in Midtown Manhattan built by the Vanderbilts. The project involved implementing major architectural and FF&E modifications to the entire 39,000-square-meter, 701-key, 16-floor property including guest rooms, lobby, reception, lounges, meeting & ballrooms, public areas and food & beverage outlets.

HOK’s interior design was inspired by elements from the property’s past that are integrated throughout the hotel in a creative and original execution. As a result of this £138 million interior upgrade and redesign, which spanned nearly 20 months, the dramatically transformed, reimagined property is now able to meet the needs of today’s business travelers, meeting planners and tourists seeking an inspired hospitality experience in the heart of New York City.

The property tells a unique story of the Birds, the B’s and the Eagle as well as the grand style and speed of the railroad. The design team took inspiration from these icons, and incorporated them as recurring themes throughout the interior. In addition, a major re-design of the public spaces helped to improve the hotel’s operations and event capabilities, as well as general orientation and flow of guests through spaces.
