Tina has extensive experience in the hospitality, residential and leisure sectors at a wide range of scales. She was the lead for the award-winning South Place Hotel in Shoreditch and German Gymnasium in King’s Cross, which won a Restaurant and Bar Design Award for ‘Best Overall Restaurant (in the world)’. She has recently designed the interior of Anatolian restaurant Rüya in Dubai Marina, the interiors for two high-end residential towers in the newly launched Greenwich Peninsula and is currently working on two new Park Hyatt projects in Asia Pacific due to complete in 2017/18.

Victoria is an architect who is experienced across all aspects of the residential sector - passionate about creating homes and environments that make a positive contribution to the city. Focusing on residential and mixed-use regeneration projects in a design, project management, and client liaison role, Vic’s strength lies in her ability to bring together the various - and challenging - client, planning and consultation needs. She believes that understanding the prevailing context and how people use their environments is crucial to informing good design – and that each project is fundamentally fresh and unique. Notable recent schemes include the regeneration of Former Walthamstow Stadium, and also Portobello Square Phase 2. There are other similar schemes in the pipeline.

Simon's multi-disciplinary background gives him a 'lifestyle' approach to design to create forward-thinking guest-led experiences traditionally attributed to other sectors. Having worked across hotels, restaurants, private member’s clubs, residential, retail and workspace; Simon believes in implementing creative cross-sector ideas to enhance a brief for the client and end user. Simon is currently working on a variety of residential projects across the UK, from reinventing a Barbican Tower for Redrow London, to a new-build project for Argent in King’s cross. He is also leading the interior design for a new PURO flagship hotel in Kraków and his recent designs for "the life" retail environment in Seoul is currently shortlisted for numerous design awards.
