Drees & Sommer / Interior Design Director, Global Hospitality, Dubai Office
Karen considers herself fortunate to have worked with a prestigious variety of clients over the past 26 years, including some of the top Worldwide Hospitality brands and Design Firms in the industry.
Her approach to her design work has matured over the years to not only include all stages of the design but also to streamline the delivery process, bringing an uncharacteristic clarity to what is often regarded as unduly complex.
Karen loves to create a narrative by connecting the visual and aesthetic story to the shapes and forms within the given space. Further, her common-sense approach and honest appraisal of projects enable her to elevate clients’ expectations to surprising new levels.
She has worked extensively with Elite clients in the Middle East region and her impressive list of projects ranges from Private Island resorts in the Maldives for Coco Collection to 5-star Yacht Clubs, Hotels, and F&B restaurants for multi-award-winning Chefs. Karen is excited and proud to be currently designing the interior of the first-ever private members’ club in Saudi Arabia, due to open in 2021.
