Hudson New York

In this adaptive re-use of a twenty-six story midtown Manhattan building, Ennead and interior designer Philippe Starck defined a new paradigm for hotel design.

It's been open for five short days, but already the Hudson is turning into a playground for the fashionable and famous. The new Ian Schrager hotel at 356 W. 58th St. near Ninth Ave. an unlikely location for a hotspot has seduced the city's tastemakers with its imaginative decor, multiple bars and leafy outdoor dining areas.

The project transforms the mixed commercial and residential building into the flagship hotel of Ian Schrager’s Morgans Hotel group and one of Manhattan’s premier hotels. 

Public spaces, including an outdoor dining terrace, library, restaurant, conference center, health club facility and a sleek lounge on the second floor dominate the first four floors. 

One thousand guest rooms are located on the floors above, with the fifteenth and twenty-fourth floors specially designed and reserved for private parties and events.

The existing through-block lobby of the original building was renovated to accommodate a new tenant lobby, and a new hotel entrance was created on 58th Street, where a spectacular sixty-foot-long escalator transports visitors to the giant glowing glass box of the reception lobby on the second floor.
