Supremely delighted to have @hotelpeterandpaul featured over on @archdigest ! #design#architecture#arquitectura#hotel#repost @archdigest with @get_repost ・・・ Five years ago in New Orleans, @wtcooper, @ariheckman, and Jonathan Minkoff of the firm @ash_newyork found themselves smitten. On the search for their next hotel location, the Brooklyn-based designers were brought by their local partner @nathaliejordi to a vacant 1860s church complex in the Marigny, designed in part by architect Henry Howard, complete with rectory, schoolhouse, and convent. As they took in the property’s swooping cypress staircases, gingerbread façade, and gilded altars, they knew this was it, the perfect site and the perfect neighborhood—bohemian, mostly residential, without a competing hotel. “We’d do whatever it takes,” Cooper remembers thinking. What it took was some 12 months to rezone the property for commercial use, years of mood-boarding, and several buying trips to Europe, during just one of which they scored some 770 antiques for the project. “We wanted it to be very ‘done,’” Cooper says. “We wanted proper decoration.” Today, those finds fill the halls of @hotelpeterandpaul, where guests enter through the schoolhouse to reach the 71 rooms—many of them furnished with custom gingham fabrics and hand-painted credenzas that riff on the trompe l’oeil walls at L’Institut Guerlain in Paris. The rich, monochromatic color palettes that distinguish each floor of the schoolhouse, meanwhile, were lifted from the Greek and Russian religious icons that punctuate the property. As for the rectory (pictured here), convent, and church, thanks to a thoughtful restoration in conjunction with NOLA’s @studioWTA, those structures now boast retail, event spaces, and dining courtesy of New Orleans hotspot @bacchanalwine.
