HOSPITALITYDESIGN: Raffles Boston Back Bay Reveals Latest Design Details

The Raffles Boston Back Bay Hotel & Residences will mark the arrival of Raffles Hotels & Resorts in North America upon opening in 2022. The 35-story, $400 million mixed-use structure is being crafted by locally based practice the Architectural Team, Inc. to meet LEED Gold certification. New York-based firm Stonehill Taylor is spearheading the hotel’s interiors, while Rockwell Group is helming the residential interiors.

In addition to 146 opulent residences, the luxury development will be home to a 147-room hotel. The property will feature an array of upscale amenities and focal points, beginning with the ground floor entrance lobby complete with a patisserie and an expansive botanical-inspired chandelier installed across the ceiling.

The three-story sky lobby and atrium—spread across the building’s the 17th, 18th, and 19th floors—will be linked via a striking spiral staircase composed of plaster and copper detailing. Accenting the stairs will be hanging gardens inspired by the local vernacular, while pervasive copper elements will echo the rich industrial history of the setting as well. “The aim was to create an unparalleled destination in Boston and reinterpreting the Raffles themes in something unique to Boston,” says Stonehill Taylor president Paul D. Taylor.

The sky lobby will also house a warm lounge punctuated by a double-sided fireplace and backed with an eye-catching beveled screen. A 70-seat fine dining concept will also employ a bespoke chandelier, composed of handblown glass petals, as its focal point. The restaurant will be equipped with a clandestine entrance to a speakeasy one floor above, while a roof terrace and sky bar will round out the hotel’s F&B offerings. Furthermore, the onsite Raffles Spa will feature a 65-foot-long pool.
