Situated on the waterfront along the Hudson River, the W Hoboken Hotel & Residences offers world-class services and the environment to match them. The hotel is a chic, sophisticated landmark in the middle of bustling nightlife and an opulent atmosphere. Metropolitan amenities surround the W, and even more are just a ferry ride away in Manhattan.
A Cambridge architectural mesh system wraps the entire lobby wall and reflects colored light, creating a flowing effect down the wall and behind the hotel’s welcome desk. The result is an effortlessly engaging backdrop that acts as the focal point of the upscale lobby.
The mesh system specified for the W Hoboken Hotel & Residences provides the ideal functional solution for its lobby wall cladding. It features a brand new attachment method called Micro-Eclipse, which allows the mesh panels to be installed in tension much closer to the wall than ever before, further proving mesh’s versatility when incorporated into building interiors. The strength of flexible stainless steel metal fabric also makes it perfect for the hotel’s high-traffic area.
In the W Hoboken Hotel & Residences, the virtual indestructibility and lifecycle of the mesh wallcovering reduces maintenance costs and assures that there will be no need for replacement materials. Additionally, the stainless steel metal fabric is extremely durable, with a life cycle that far outlasts alternative products. Even after an application completes its lifecycle, Cambridge’s metal fabric is 100% recyclable. Cambridge Architectural is an active member of the USGBC®, and helps architects take maximum advantage of LEED credit through the many categories in which architectural mesh systems apply.
