    The Alice

    The Alice began with the inspiring facade of the Chelsea Hotel, a homage to the Victorian-- and a reminder of Alice in Wonderland. While the beginnings of the hotel stemmed from these ideas, the design took a darker, moodier turn as melancholia took front and center as I developed the experiences of the hotel-- particularly the atrium turned terrarium and sensory deprivation tanks. Thus, the hotel transformed into an introspective experience for individuals, for one to wonder. The stained glass windows creating the core of the terrarium, were designed based on shapes found in local existing windows and those original to the building. Key rooms circle and look out into the terrarium, furthering the cycle of introspection in the hotel and create a labyrinth -like effect.
