DMA appoints Thorogood as interiors associate

by | 03 Mar 2021 | Design

Hospitality design specialist Dexter Moren Associates has bolstered its ranks with the addition of Tom Thorogood, who boasts extensive experience in luxury hotels and resorts.

Tom Thorogood, the new interiors associate at Dexter Moren Associates (DMA), will support the growth of this award-winning practice.

Boosting the studio’s offering

DMA, which works across a broad spectrum of hospitality projects, brings together the expertise of 70 architecture and interior design specialists. Founded in 1992, the practice has since established itself as a market leader thanks to its ethos of ‘creating places people want to stay’.

Now, Thorogood has become DMA’s latest key appointment. Its new recruit brings with him more than 14 years’ experience in the luxury hotel, resort, residential and retail sectors, having led on an array of projects for large operators and small independent brands, both in the UK and internationally.

As interiors associate, Thorogood will play a significant role in the practice’s strategic evolution and growth, as the firm works towards expanding its portfolio within the build-to-rent [BTR], residential and luxury hotel sectors throughout the UK, Europe, Middle East and Africa.

Working on a hotel project in London

From concept to completion, Thorogood will be involved in all aspects of a project’s design to ensure client’s expectations are consistently exceeded.

“Tom has already started working on one of our key projects, using his extensive design sensibilities and skillset to breathe a new lease of life into a grade II-listed hotel in central London,” said Lindsey Bean-Pearce, partner and head of interiors for the practice. “Tom’s personality, luxury design and detailing skills, as well as his ability to work on small niche and large-scale projects are a perfect fit for our future expansion plans, including DMA’s growing workload in BTR and residential where our hospitality experience is perfectly suited to landlords and developers seeking to deliver quality schemes. We are thrilled to have Tom join our team.”
