Justin Wazka / Brian Shinault Architects / Studio Tack
Winners

With design by Brooklyn-based Studio Tack, Coachman Hotel is a new experience that embraces modern style and convenience while celebrating an analogue era where escapes to nature were prized pastimes. The property is specifically designed and programmed to promote an approachable, friendly and convivial atmosphere. A former three-bay garage, the hotel’s primary public space now features as a lobby, café, lounge and bar. Judges commented: “Studio Tack has created a space that is relevant without being expected. The design is authentic and approachable: it doesn’t pretend to be anything that it isn’t. It feels just right.”
