I studied Hospitality & Tourism back home in Spain before moving to the UK over 20 years ago.
I feel I always had a love affair with hospitality. From the early days of my professional life, I was part of a creative team responsible for the opening and management of some of the top restaurants, clubs and bars in Madrid, back in the 90’s.
Once here, in the UK, and after graduating with honours as an interior architect, I landed my first job with the team responsible for designing the restaurant and club of The Kensington Roof Gardens, sadly now closed
Soon after, I joined Studio Proof where I was responsible for the roll out of a new design brand for the Accor Hotel group, first launched in the in the UK and the Netherlands. This is when I realized that I had found my niche and I never looked back. In 2008, I joined Areen Hospitality where I found myself designing for prestigious clients at that time and involved in large and small boutique hotel projects where I was responsible of the initial strategic and conceptual design through to completion, managing and considering every detail of the design process.
Over my professional years, I have developed an in depth understanding of the hospitality and leisure design industries, which allows me to bring a unique and pragmatic approach to the design process.

We are happy to offer a service for clients who are just looking for inspiration and a point in the right direction and as happy to offer a complete design service for those who would required us to oversee their project from beginning to completion.
