The Lower East Side Life
The financial collapse of ones makes way to others… Sean MacPherson, Ira Druker and Richard Born restored a building abandoned by the previous developer. As a result, in the very center of the cultures and styles overlap, where fabulous restaurants stand side by side with shops for moms, The Ludlow hotel appeared.
The building with its own history, built with red brick with large factory windows fits easily to the contrasting view. Once inside, one finds himself in the hall full of light with a beautiful mosaic floor, walls covered with oak paneling and classy fireplace attracting the lobby visitors’ attention. Magnetic hospitality – is exactly what Sean MacPherson and Co wants to express.
The atrium lobby is created to be a loft-like lounge, where, according to old fashion, incredible parties of the creative inhabitants of New York City were held.
“We would like to function as the lounge of this area” – Sean MacPherson
The active life of the first floor is imperceptible in the rooms above which are full of cozy atmosphere. Sean MacPherson has chosen all the furniture and decorations by himself. Hardwood floors, handmade silk carpets, Moroccan hanging lamps, beds with bedside tables made of fossilized tree trunks, armchairs – all this is the rooms filling which makes them be like apartments but not the hotel rooms.
The hotel consists of 184 rooms, including 20 suites, 9 configurations. It gives the opportunity to enjoy the city views from wide windows. Some rooms have terraces. For example, New York bridges are visible from the large terrace of the penthouse.
