BBB's design for the redevelopment of Eero Saarinen's mid-century masterpiece reactivates this international landmark and opens it to the public as a hotel, restaurant and conference center.

The newly designed TWA Hotel at JFK International Airport maintains the integrity and legacy of the 1962 structure designed by Eero Saarinen. Vacant for over 15 years, the restored Flight Center serves as the lobby for the hotel, and the cornerstone for the restaurant and conference complex. Two new wings located behind the historic Flight Center house 512 hotel rooms, and a subterranean 46,000 SF conference center is set between the two TWA connecting tubes. Restaurants, a 10,000-SF public observation deck, retail shops, a rooftop pool and a health club complete the program. The TWA Hotel is the only hotel within the JFK Airport property, providing both a convenient travelers amenity and an event destination for the metro New York area. Included in the project plans is a museum focusing on the history of TWA, the story of Eero Saarinen and the Midcentury Modern design movement.
