City Scene 2016
On Tuesday night Hospitality Design Magazine hosted their annual City Scene cocktail hour at the newest boutique hotel in Brooklyn - The William Vale in Williamsburg. The hotel is a modern architectural tower where every guestroom has a balcony and breathtaking views. The Interior Design was executed by Alessandro Munge and his team out of Toronto and feature thoughtful detailing throughout. Our team was on hand to experience the property and were lucky enough to snag a personal tour with Alessandro as he walked us through the challenges and victories of achieving his vision. Much of the interiors were fabricated in Portugal which yielded a very high level of craftsmanship in the casework and fixtures. The marble that graces the public areas came from quarries in Italy and random sizes were used to be more economical while achieving a luxurious look. The hotel features a mix of beautiful indoor and outdoor space including a rooftop Airstream trailer serving burgers two stories above the street. The guest quarters are modest but well-appointed with panoramic views making the spaces feel much larger than they actually are. The William Vale is one of the few hotels that successfully marries modern design with the warmth of a personal residence. Congratulations to Alessandro and his team for a job well done.
