Join designers from Lubrano Ciavarra Architects as they discuss the process of restoring Eero Saarinen’s beloved TWA Flight Center (a project led by Beyer Blinder Belle Architects), a massive three-year long endeavor involving over 170 government agencies and consulting firms. The restoration included constructing two brand new hotel wings behind it designed by LUBRANO CIAVARRA Architects with interior design by Stonehill Taylor, and building a 50,000 sf events center by INC Architecture & Design. From the moment guests and visitors arrive at the 392,000 sf TWA Hotel, they find themselves immersed in the ethos of 1962’s rich culture, architecture, sights, sounds, and ambiance. Attention to the smallest of details permeates the entire guest experience, paying homage to the newly restored Flight Center and a special time in American history.
Set in two new low-rise buildings designed by Lubrano Ciavarra and connected to the terminal through the original red-carpeted flight tubes, the TWA Hotel’s 426 guestrooms and 86 suites are ultra-quiet due to custom 4.5-inch thick windows — the second thickest windows in the world. A new rooftop infinity pool and observation deck, also designed by Lubrano Ciavarra, allows guests to observe once-in-a-lifetime views of JFK’s runways while enjoying drinks from the Pool Bar, operated by the Gerber Group.
