Hotel Zero Degrees in Danbury, Conn., begins construction

Jonathan Nehmer + Associates (JN+A) and HVS Design are designing the new Hotel Zero Degrees in Danbury, Conn. The hotel began construction last week and is expected to open by the end of the year.

The third in the Hotel Zero Degrees collection is owned by RMS Companies. The Danbury, Conn., location will have 111 guestrooms, a 100-seat restaurant and gathering space. The design was conceived as a modern lodge, and plays off of contrasts between rugged architecture and contemporary furnishings and finishes.

Throughout the public spaces, the theme of bringing the outdoors inside is incorporated through the use of large open windows where views of the outdoors are created from multiple seating areas. The open floorplan with its flexible seating groupings offers options for gathering and connecting. The guestrooms each have a minimal palette of warm grays, green and pops of black for a graphic touch.
