Designer II

Position Summary

Our passionate interior design teams create places where people want to be—memorable environments with rich stories that deliver inspiration. With a collaborative process, we have helped clients stand out in their market for more than thirty years on over 500 design projects around the world. From world-renowned luxury hotels to multi-family spaces to call home; from sought-after dining experiences to resorts that rejuvenate; we craft magnetic spaces that evoke emotion and exude hospitality.

The Designer II supports parts of a project or entire projects depending upon the scope in conjunction with Team Leadership.
