Benoy, international award-winning Architects, Masterplanners, Interior and Graphic Designers, has welcomed renowned hospitality designer, David Buffery, to its Hong Kong studio to lead the firm’s Global Hospitality Team.
Peter McCaffery, Global Director and Head of the Hong Kong Studio said:
“We are delighted to welcome David to Benoy in the capacity of Global Head of Hospitality Design to strengthen our presence and portfolio within the sector,”
“Hospitality is one of the fastest growing industries internationally and David’s appointment confirms our commitment to contributing leading and forward-thinking design. David’s diverse project experience across the industry and his ability to develop successful design teams is an invaluable asset for Benoy.”
For over 20 years David has been involved in the Interior Design industry and has delivered high-profile schemes for Intercontinental Hotels, Galaxy Resort Casinos, Starwood Hotels, Hilton and The Peninsula. Well known for his leadership within the sector and his work on a diverse collection of projects, David is also regularly commissioned for stand-alone restaurant outlets and private clubs across Asia.
“I am honoured to take up this global role for Benoy. For me, the most important aspect of Hospitality Design is working with the Architect and Interior Architect to ensure a strong design language reverberates throughout a scheme. This is a core philosophy I can already see in Benoy’s work.”
“Benoy’s model for promoting multi-disciplinary design teams and their balance of commercial acumen alongside creative and locally sensitive design gives me a very strong platform to launch the Global Hospitality Team. The opportunity for our clients and what Benoy will offer to the sector is very exciting.”
Currently based in Benoy’s Hong Kong office, David will commence a tour across the firm’s global studios in Asia, India, the UAE and the UK to drive, develop and manage Benoy’s Hospitality portfolio which already includes the award-winning EAST Hotel in Beijing.
