The TWA Hotel inside of the JFK Airport terminal by Eero Saarinen

Barbie lives for all thing repurposed especially when it’s one of her favorite architects. Here’s a dream hotel that’s given a new life to renowned piece of mud-century modern architecture, the JFK Airport terminal by Eero Saarinen.

The TWA Hotel inside of the JFK Airport terminal by Eero Saarinen 

The TWA Hotel located in the mid-century modern structure that was originally completed by Eero Saarinen for TWA at JFK. Unable to support modern aircraft the terminal was shut down in 2001. The renovation has overhauled the original building and is historically the first hotel to be located in an airport terminal on site at an airport. 

The guests rooms are housed in two new curved buildings placed behind the original Saarinen's structure. The accommodations feature seven panes and have a very thick curtain-wall construction, to block out runway noise but allow views of the tarmac.

The decor of rooms and living spaces have been designed to capture the history of the space, with elements giving homage to the origins 1960s design. 

Amenities include a rooftop pool & observation bar among their many restaurants, bars and lounges.

Would you book a stay in this updated classic? 
Barbie would!
Kisses, m.
