The Pierre, the New York flagship of Taj Hotels, has a commanding Fifth Avenue presence overlooking Central Park. A venue for glittering weddings and other celebrations, the hotel is beloved by generations of New Yorkers.
Taj, the owners, commissioned Champalimaud to develop an ambitious new master plan to refresh its public areas and function rooms. As always, Champalimaud approached this prestigious project with a deep respect for the Pierre's venerable position in the social fabric of New York City. Classical and modern details, including custom chandeliers and sconces, were integrated into the original 1930s neo-Georgian architecture.
Champalimaud reimagined under-utilized back-of-house space on the ground floor into the popular 2 East Bar and Lounge. An enchanting illuminated bar draws guests into this intimate and sophisticated venue which transitions easily from mid-morning tea to late night cocktails.
