The firm, established in 1991, is set to bring new luxury hospitality, resort and residential projects to DLR Group, with a client list that includes the likes of Four Seasons, Waldorf Astoria and Fairmont.
“BraytonHughes adds a depth of award-winning, luxury interiors expertise that elevates our Hospitality studio and our global Interiors practice,” says Griff Davenport, Group Board Chair at DLR. “Its mountain work, resort, country club work and corporate workplace design bring new client types to DLR Group to accelerate growth in these segments. The talented designers at BraytonHughes also provide DLR Group a stronger design presence for interiors in California and the West Coast.”
Janea Nakagawa, President of BraytonHughes, adds: “We made the decision to join DLR Group to accelerate our growth and access scale to provide our people with more design opportunities. This ensures the design legacy of BraytonHughes. DLR Group is 100% employee-owned and that became incredibly attractive as we went through this process. Everyone at BraytonHughes will have the opportunity to be an owner and benefit financially from their design work as part of DLR Group.”
The firm will relocate to DLR Group’s San Francisco office, where interior designers Janea Nakagawa, Rachel Fischbach and Kiko Singh, and architects Joel Villalon and Towan Kim will join DLR Group as principals.
With the addition of BraytonHughes, the San Francisco office now hosts 50 integrated design professionals.
