Chris Thornley

Associate Director

Chris has fifteen years of experience working in the industry and has a diverse and international portfolio, working across the London and Hong Kong studios.


With tangible cross-sector experience, he is passionate about developing bespoke solutions which are context rather than trend-driven.  He is less focused on replicating things that have been done previously and prefers to focus on how things should be done, dependent upon context and ambition.


With a portfolio that leans towards high-end hospitality, both new projects and refurbishments, Chris has experience working with hotel groups and more independent clients to ensure our designs work hand in hand with their brand ambitions. He has used this experience to inform our approach to high-end residential and prestigious developments both in London and internationally.  More recently Chris has enjoyed the challenge of applying this experience to reimagine what workplace and retail could be from more of a lifestyle perspective.
