Andrew Linwood

As Head of Hospitality at Areen Design, Andrew is involved in, and monitors all aspects of a project: from initial client contact, brief and concept development through to documentation and site installation. His passion for delivering design solutions which add value, without compromising creative quality, is resolute.

Andrew has designed insightful interiors for many of the world’s leading hotel operators including Hilton, Marriott, Radisson, Accor, Hyatt and InterContinental Hotels Group. The concept for each project is anchored in the site, situation and cultural condition of the building and the community it inhabits. Andrew believes that a design can only be considered truly successful if it achieves integration with its local environment, he explains “Functionality and efficiency may drive returns, but any hospitality brand has to integrate the personality of the place and the people in each location.”

Andrew has worked across four continents on both new build projects and major refurbishments of hotels. His reputation as both a conference speaker and thought leader continues to grow, founded on design principles which he firmly believes will release more value to investors and operators.

Areen Design is currently working on projects across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, India, Central Asia and China.
