Jeffrey Beers International designs WestHouse Hotel New York’s The Terrace

WestHouse Hotel New York in Manhattan unveiled The Terrace. Located above the city on the hotel's 23rd floor, The Terrace's space includes views of Manhattan. 

Open throughout the day, The Terrace includes a kitchen and open dining room, private dining room, lounge and alfresco terrace.  Like the rest of the property, The Terrace is accessible only to hotel guests. 

Jeffrey Beers International (JBI), the firm responsible for WestHouse Hotel New York's interiors, designed the Terrace spaces. Weaving many of the design motifs and Art Deco influences found throughout The Den and the WestHouse Hotel lobby, JBI utilized a selection of materials to conceive The Terrace. Washed in warm shades of amber, soft gray and toasted beige, the space is characterized by accents including polished brass and bronze.

According to Beers, the design of The Terrace was driven by the desire to make a multifunctional dining and living space that feels like part of a home.

Guests will enter The Terrace through a central foyer, which leads into a multi-purpose space, serving as a main dining room and kitchen. An art installation includes rectangular brass plates on antique hooks, as well as framed antiqued keys and Deco mirrors. Decorative hammered tin panels with a brass finish accent the ceiling. A 45-foot banquette, upholstered in lux camel-colored leather, is available for seating. Tall wingback chairs upholstered in shades of navy blue, caramel brown and smoky silver add a depth of color, pattern and texture to the space.

In the center of The Terrace is display for buffet-style breakfasts, afternoon tea and evening canape presentations. Its quartz stone counter resembles a residential kitchen island, with brass and wood stools suitable for singles dining.  

The private dining room features a long wood dining table, seating up to eight, with townhouse inspired details such as inset wall panels with original artwork. The adjoining outdoor terrace space is accented with lounge area seating, as well as dining tables, replete with umbrellas. Tall antique bronze metal trellis screens bookend the seating groups, which include a variety of sectional sofas, dining tables and chairs, along with antique brass side tables. Tall glass and metal lanterns display candles in the evening. 

Opened in December 2013, WestHouse Hotel New York was designed by Jeffrey Beers International.
