Olivia’s appointment follows a raft of new client and project appointments for Macaulay Sinclair, which specialises in interior architecture for the hospitality sector, and takes the team to 16.

“With any interior design project, I think it’s important that there is a strong background narrative and when you are in a space designed by Macaulay Sinclair you really get a sense of story and concept – so I am excited to be part of a team that produces such well-considered interiors," comments Olivia.

“I’m also looking forward to working on multiple projects. Adapting to different styles and concepts is what keeps me excited as a designer.”

Director John Macaulay adds: “We are excited to be growing our team which is expanding due to rapid business growth over the past few years. Olivia increases a body of staff that is already highly-regarded for producing beautiful hospitality venues for multiple clients. We are delighted to welcome Olivia and her wealth of experience in hospitality design.”

Olivia, who has relocated to the East Midlands from London and has more than three years’ experience, has worked with a variety of brands from high-profile overseas hotels to national casual dining venues around the UK.

She will join a team of design professionals working for many of the UK’s most respected restaurant and bar brands, including The Alchemist, Dishoom and Hawksmoor. Macaulay Sinclair has built a strong reputation for its award-winning, interior architecture and design.

She will be responsible for working on multiple design projects in hospitality design, supporting on research, concept development and project implementation.
