Co-founder and chief creative officer of Salt Hotels Kevin O’Shea explains how they transformed an abandoned brick manufacturing facility into a luxury hotel and event space in this video produced by Dezeen Studio.
Named Hutton Brickyards, the hotel is located in Kingston, New York, along the Hudson River.
The resort also functions as a large-scale event space and was named winner of the Event Spaces category at the AHEAD Americas Awards 2021.
Salt Hotels renovated the property from an original 19th century structure
The AHEAD Awards celebrate striking hospitality projects from across the world and is split into four different regions: Europe, Middle East and Africa (MEA), Asia and the Americas.
The AHEAD Global awards represent the finale of the programme of regional events in 2020 and 2021, in which the winners are pitted against each other to determine the best recently opened hotels worldwide.

O’Shea told Dezeen how the owner and developer Karl Slovin worked to preserve and renovate the existing structures during a seven-year restoration process.
