Perkins Eastman | The Hoxton Williamsburg

The Hoxton Williamsburg

Brooklyn, New York
To create an authentic experience for visiting guests and the local community, Perkins Eastman designed The Hoxton, Williamsburg with a nod to the neighborhood’s historic character. Through use of industrial materials and inviting open places, the modern boutique hotel now anchors a bustling Wythe Avenue in the heart of Williamsburg.

Hoxton hotels are inspired by the diversity and originality of the neighborhoods that surround them, and the new Williamsburg location designed by Perkins Eastman is no exception. Set on the former factory grounds of Rosenwach, the maker of iconic water towers that dot the New York skyline, The Hoxton, Williamsburg is a place to sleep, work, eat, and play any time of the day. Perkins Eastman brought to life a nine-story boutique hotel that incorporates a historic warehouse renovation, working with developers at Ennismore.

Featuring variegated brick derived from the original factory and a dark gray corrugated metal tower, the building maintains long-standing neighborhood characteristics. At the heart of the courtyard, a cantilevered tower structure rests dramatically on a sculptural steel column, creating a dynamic entryway that welcomes the neighborhood inside the hotel. Uniquely appointed and efficiently designed, each of the 175 guest rooms required careful planning. Though compact, every room feels airy and comfortable.

Brooklynites and hotel guests enjoy a variety of public areas designed to maximize the unique location: Summerly, a rooftop dining establishment with striking views; Klein’s, an all-day restaurant with outdoor spaces, the Library and open kitchen; and a multi-media courtyard with bleacher-style seating for casual gatherings.
