World-renowned interior architectural design firm, Wilson Associates, has announced the hiring of Patrick Fung as Design Director for its Shanghai studio.
With over 15 years of international experience as an interior designer and UK-registered architect, Fung specialises in high-end fit-outs for luxury residential and hospitality architecture and interiors. He joined the Wilson team in December.
“Patrick’s deep global awareness and bespoke design approach will make him an extremely valuable member of our Shanghai team,” says Lei Berger, Managing Director Wilson’s Shanghai office.
“It’s already been an exciting year for Wilson Associates, and we’re looking forward to seeing Fung’s creativity flourish and his impressive portfolio expand alongside the company’s continued expansion in the region.”
Fung’s portfolio spans Europe and Asia, including esteemed projects such as One Hyde Park in London; The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Kuala Lumpur; and JW Marriott Mumbai Sahar. Joining a dynamic team of international designers, Fung draws energy from the city of Shanghai, striking a balance between creative and technical solutions in each of his designs.
“I am honoured to be able to work with such a talented team and develop my skills further at Wilson Associates,” says Fung. “I am most excited to have the opportunity to champion groundbreaking projects with industry-leading designers in this new role.”
As Design Director, Fung will be intimately involved in each stage of design, managing both the internal team and the client relationship throughout the course of a project. He will be responsible for bringing visions to light through a holistic, integrated, and timeless approach that responds to the specific nuances of a project’s target demographic as well as its location, history, culture, budget, and schedule.
“The value of good design is a timeless lesson that I learned from my mentors and I hope I can pass that onto young designers which I have the pleasure to be working with,” adds Fung, who is currently working on designs for InterContinental Hotel Group’s EVEN Hotels brand, as well as a hot spring resort in Fuzhou and a family villa for a private client.
