Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood continues to be a region in transition and one that possesses a broad roster of cultural institutions. Bedford Hotel adds to local activity with aesthetics and opportunities, creating a sense of belonging adorned with resilient greenery and a commitment to urban requalification. To capture the space ‘in between,’ elements of division and transition are at play in the arches, patio, and floating garden landscape. Corridors and rooms hug residents and guests with curved edges that allude to the building’s bent shape, poetic notes that feel equally familiar and old world.
