The Wythe Hotel; When Industrial Chic Meets Brooklyn

After discovering a vacant factory on the Brooklyn waterfront, Andrew Tarlow and Jed Walentas decided to transform the 100-year-old cooperage into the gorgeous and eccentric Wythe Hotel. Paying special attention to preservation of the factory the founders utilized local artists, designers and talent while incorporating authentic design details and exquisite finishing touches to the hotel. 

Tarlow and Walentas were drawn to the building’s unique industrial character, open floor plans and quality structure. They were able to refurbish many of the original features including the concave corner entrance, 13-foot original timber ceilings, masonry, oversized arched windows, cast-iron columns and metal railings. With 72 guest rooms, a ground floor restaurant and bar, fitness room, screening room and rooftop bar the Wythe Hotel has perfectly fused industrial style with luxe hospitality.

Design details of the hotel:

-Commissioned pieces from local artists Duke Riley, ESPO, and Tom Fruin

Dave Hollier Woodwork and Design created custom made beds, desks and other furniture from pieces of wood found in the factory.

-Lighting fixtures by Works Manufacturing

-Custom nouveau toile wallpaper designed by Dan Funderburgh of Flavor Paper

-Natural bathroom soaps from Brooklyn-based company/manufacturer Goldies
