ForrestPerkins’ international award-winning renovation and new-build projects have been published globally and our team has received numerous accolades and honors.
FORRESTPERKINS’ strength is our award-winning interior design. From highly-creative hospitality interiors to luxurious multifamily projects, personal residences and distinctive corporate offices, each project fulfills the needs and desires of our clients and reflects a unique sense of place. For us, design is a way of life, we seek and find inspiration in everything from travel, nature, art and literature to technology. We synthesize what we have absorbed and transform that inspiration into tangible environments that resonate with our clients and their guests. FORRESTPERKINS’ technical abilities and the processes we have developed collaborating with the many craftspeople, contractors, manufacturers and artists who implement our vision are crucial to creating inspired and successful projects.
FORRESTPERKINS integrates interior architecture into each project. Our creative studios include interior designers and architects who collaborate closely from the conception of a project through completion to deliver spaces that resonate with authenticity and character. We envision and document virtually everything a guest or resident will see, touch, smell, hear or experience from the moment he or she crosses the threshold into one of our projects. This includes considering the volume of space and the articulation of floors, walls and ceilings. Depending on the needs of our clients, FORRESTPERKINS may contribute our architectural design expertise as Design Architect and Interior Designer, as Interior Designer and Architect of Record, strictly as Architect of Record or as a consulting interior architecture firm.
FORRESTPERKINS often works with developers, operators and hotel companies to provide the kind of in-depth analysis, intense focus and comprehensive design strategy required to bring a brand to life and infuse a hotel or residential project with brand attributes that differentiate our clients’ properties from competitors. Hilton Hotels & Resorts, for example, engaged Deborah Lloyd Forrest to define the Waldorf Astoria brand attributes and to create a compelling brand design narrative to guide developers, architects and designers to capture the essence of the brand in a new Waldorf hotel. That successful project led to successive opportunities to create brand narratives for two other Hilton brands. Bree Dahl was part of the team that developed the Iridium spa concept for St. Regis, while director of design for Starwood’s luxury brands.
