Here an interview with Ian Schrager about his 40 Bond project in New York City.
He talks about his new idea of 40 Bond. He wants to do what he did for nightclubs and hotels with people’s homes. It’s a great location and looks like it is going to be an awesome place to live.
It basically makes living effortless – you get a 24/7 level of service. Not just about room- and housekeeping services, you basically can get your complete household managed, but you don’t need to supervise that staff.
It’s also a piece of art – the gate is just beautiful, and it’s inspired by New York City graffiti!
When you watch the video, you can feel the intensity of his passion for what he is doing. Even though the 40 Bond concept is only vaguely related to luxury boutique hotels, we decided to share it here nonetheless, because it encapsulates the spirit of what boutique hotels are about so well.
