Architecture and design firm Zaarchitects received 2nd prize for their hotel design in New York called Heart of the District.  Instead of using the hotel to separate visitors from the local environment, it aims to embed them into the city life.  Heart of the District is half building-half street; a unique volume suspended between two existing buildings.  The hotel's rooms are located in the buildings, connected by a path that includes eateries, retail, conference rooms, play space, and a small movie theatre.  Patrons and visitors will be able to view the street traffic and city life, yet will still be able to enjoy the comfort of the hotel experience.

Wow! really superb!Thanks for sharing your observations. 

I very interested in how the "heart" could be balanced between two existing buildings.
