Modular Grows Up

Forget the double-wide. A modular tower doesn’t have to look like stacked boxes or floating dorm rooms in the sky. The simple fact is, substantial hotels require duplicative symmetry and operational efficiency; modular construction–cost-efficient and quality-controlled–meets those needs perfectly. In DF&A’s design for this Manhattan AC Hotel by Marriott, high quality consistency marries inventive architectural expression, with a sophisticated balcony strategy that puts to rest the stigma of the cheap pre-fab double-wide. This is what modular can be, expressed in the tallest modular hotel in the U.S.


DF&A’s angled but hyper-symmetrical guest floor plan leverages all of the efficiencies one gets from building in a factory. The design still allows for variation — King, Queen/Queen, ADA-Compliant, and Connecting Rooms — but with consistent room bay widths and prototypical details that capture major cost savings. And with an arresting facade that captures the eye.
