Constantina Tsoutsikou appointed Senior Associate at HBA London
Hospitality interior design firm Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA) has promoted Constantina Tsoutsikou to Senior Associate at the group’s London studio.
Constantina, who joined HBA in 2005, has been a key creative force overseeing many of the London team’s most celebrated international projects.
Her new role brings increased responsibilities, including the development of the imaginative concepts that establish the direction for each project. In addition to designing and managing her own work, she will also draw upon her hospitality expertise to provide guidance for other HBA London colleagues.
Constantina’s talents have been honed over the years through destinations such as the much-admired Raffles Istanbul Zorlu Centre, one of a number of award-winning spa projects she has designed and led.
Her contemporary concept echoes the essence of the city as a place steeped in ancient traditions and rituals, yet also an important influence in modern times. Constantina’s design of the highly acclaimed ESPA at The Europe in Killarney, Ireland, one of her first projects with HBA, continues to win awards for its dramatic beauty some nine years after completion.
HBA London has several exciting projects slated for completion in 2017, including those designed by Constantina such as Piramal Aranya; an exclusive new residential landmark in Mumbai nestled amongst lush historic botanical gardens and with stunning views of the Arabian Sea. The Orient, the Isrotel brand’s first property in Jerusalem and part of its “Exclusive Collection”, will also make its debut. HBA London’s design for this five-star luxury hotel draws upon the Swabian influences in the revitalised German Colony quarter as well as the vibrant flavours and artistry found in Jerusalem’s eclectic layering of ancient cultures and religions. Also in the pipeline, HBA London is working with Marriott on the renovation of a luxury boutique property in Place Vendôme, Paris, on an iconic heritage building with Rocco Forte in Italy and on a Luxury Collection destination in Doha.
