Top 5 Luxury Hotel Projects By Legend Ian Schrager

Let’s talk about Ian Schrager. Ready? It’s a radical trip from the life of a one man, here New York Design Agenda decided to share with you some amazing hotels in New York and around the world designed by Ian Schrager.

Entrepreneur. Developer. Designer. Visionaire. Ground breaking mind.
While he may have made his name with Studio 54 over 30 years ago, Schrager casts a long shadow over the global hotel industry. He’s credited with the conception of the “boutique hotel”, which he successful implemented with the opening of the Morgans in 1984. Later, he would up the ante with the Delano Hotel in Miami and the Mondrian Hotel in West Hollywood, both considered the first “resort hotels” that integrated high-design in spectacular locales.

In 2005, after cutting his ties to the Morgans Hotel Group, Schrager founded the Ian Schrager Company, which would go on to shape the cityscape of New York and beyond. Projects like 40 Bond, designed by Herzog & de Meuron, and the renovation of Gramercy Park Hotel, a collaboration between Schrager and artist Julian Schnabel, have set the bar for all others to follow. An amazing portfolio we will dive in right away with some of his best and most recognizable projects from the last decade:
