Since 2017, New York’s iconic Waldorf Astoria hotel has been closed for renovation, but when the Art Deco landmark reopens in 2022, fortunate folks will be able to check-in permanently. Following a scrupulous restoration of its landmarked interior and exterior by architecture firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon and residential interior designer Jean-Louis Deniot, the 1931 hotel has been partially converted into condominiums, taking a page out of the book of another historic New York icon, the Plaza Hotel.

Jean-Louis Deniot considered every detail of the bright, modern residences. “I wanted the backdrop to be as captivating as possible, without being overpowering,” Deniot says. Handcrafted finishes, natural materials, and subtle Art Deco references, such as bronze accents, bring a sense of history to gracious contemporary spaces.
