The famous, Eero Saarinen-designed JFK airport terminal has played as backdrops in many movies, and was the face of New York air travel for decades. After closing in 2001, however, the terminal has sat empty, replaced by a much newer, and much more traditional looking terminal. Finally, the classic terminal is being restored and converted into a boutique hotel, with 550 guest rooms. Uncrate has more details on the plans for the TWA Hotel:
The guest rooms will be housed in a new construction in the rear, while the original terminal — which consists of interiors designed by mid-century legends Charles Eames, Raymond Loewy, and Warren Platner — is getting restored back to its former glory. The plans also include eight restaurants, conference and event space, a 10,000 square foot public observation deck, and a museum that will highlight the Jet Age, Trans World Airlines, and Midcentury Modern design.
