New York-based real estate investors Bridgeton have converted a former button and ribbon factory in Tribeca into a boutique hotel that harnesses the building's Gilded Age architecture to recall the city's past.

Although responsible for the overall design of the Walker Hotel Tribeca, Bridgeton brought in a number of specialists to collaborate on elements like its restaurant and its cocktail bar.

Constructed in 1899, the Renaissance Revival style building stretches for an entire 175ft (53m) blockfront and boasts three street frontages.

A large entry lobby references Tibeca's history and development, with mid-century and classic furniture, rich textiles and contemporary light fixtures.

Guests can either check-in there or at a second, more social lobby above that doubles as a lounge and cocktail bar with marble and rosewood fixtures.

Atit Jariwala, founder of Bridgeton Hospitality, explained to CLAD: "The original check-in was slated for the first floor, but we moved it down half a flight of stairs to a mullioned, Mahogany alcove where staff can provide guests with their full attention – and guests can get whisked up to their rooms through a private elevator.

"The floor directly above is dedicated to the Walker Lobby – a 50-seat lounge, serving cocktails and a limited menu consisting of lighter, more casual fare. This presents guests with the opportunity to check-in traditionally or 'socially' by sitting for a drink and being checked-in with a cocktail in hand, casually if the guest can spare the time."

There are seven categories of 171 guest rooms spread across 10 floors, all of which are designed to have "a timeless and progressive charm with efficient footprints, high-quality finishes, and elevated details."

Room details include marble baths, rain showers, tobacco leather professor chairs, herringbone wood floors and crisp linens.

The hotel is home to six distinct food and drink venues. Among them is a 45-seat restaurant designed by Cycle Projects to be light-filled, elegant and modern, using materials like stone tile, marble and plaster.

A below-ground cocktail bar, meanwhile, is conceived by John McCormick Design to be intimate and give the feel of walking into its Victoria-era heritage.

There's also an 11th-floor rooftop terrace rooftop with a capacity for up to 160 people that provides views across the north of New York and along Broadway.

Elsewhere, a 24-seat reading room provides a peaceful place for guests to relax and can be rented out or split into two rooms for events.
