The Best New Rooftop Pools Across the Globe


Originally opened in 2004, the Gansevoort Meatpacking NYC hotel recently underwent a $30 million overhaul, including a redo of its rooftop pool and lounge, a collaborative effort between Gansevoort Hotel Group president and founder Michael Achenbaum, Chris Kofitsas of New World Design Builders, and Olivier Weppe, the hotel’s creative director and designer. “[It’s] a modern take on a 1950s beach club,” Achenbaum says. “The mahogany represents the cabanas that used to dot areas like Coney Island and other classic New York seaside beach environments, and even the pool bottom was incorporated into the color scheme and gives off a sensation of a wave coming to the shore.”
