Andres Escobar is among North America’s most recognized designers, boasting some of the world’s most high-profile corporate, retail, restaurant, hospitality, airport and residential projects . . .
. . . and yet he and his team bring sensitivity to each individual project and each client’s vision. (Witness the new and elegant look of the Holiday Inn Brooklyn from Escobar Design by Lemay!)
This half-hour interview invites you to meet the man behind the marquee, on Building New York – New York Stories, a weekly television show profiling individuals who have made an impact on the lives, community and businesses of New York City. This relaxed back-and-forth tells the Escobar story from the very beginning: an internationally influenced childhood in Colombia, working in construction, his decision to leave engineering, designing one of the first superstores and going on to define some of the Big Apple’s most exclusive boutique hotels.
