Do you know much about Hirsch Bedner Associates or Gensler? If not, you should!
Interior Design magazine recently named these global architecture and design firms the top two hospitality Giants of 2012. However, they are not the only design firms to see growth over the past years - in business or in numbers!
Luxury and boutique hotels seem to demand most of the architecture and design community’s time these days. In fact, the article claims “91 percent of hospitality Giants expect to work on hotel projects in the coming year.” They advise that work overseas will continue to trend up as well.
So pay attention the next time you are staying in a hotel – most likely, there will be recent renovations or a new project in the works!
Here are some recent hotel projects that are worth a look.
