Leveraging our background in architectural interiors; interior design; sourcing & digital technologies, we are on a mission to deliver distinctive & inspired design solutions for clients, which in turn deliver exceptional performance for their organisations.

We specialise in collaborating with clients and design teams to bring our inimitable perspective, creativity and commercial insight to every project.

We work passionately across pioneering limited-service concepts through to five-star luxury properties, developing successful, longstanding relationships with our clients and the wider design team of architects, engineers, M&E consultants, and contractors.

Our multi-disciplinary work style delivers a creative & holistic design approach – and we like to mix this with our many years of sound operational & commercial hotel design & experience.

We are interior architects, interior designers, furniture designers and procurement professionals. We develop individual, bespoke designs, embracing client’s goals for the site, working to create a strong sense of place and provenance on projects ranging in build value from £100k to £100m.

We believe that great design has the power to transform people’s lives and enrich their experiences. We also believe that technology and innovation are rapidly changing the design world and hotel design.

Driven by a strong creative outlook, with roots in digital technologies, the team at Occa are pioneers of implementing such technology to disrupt traditional interior design processes and services. We are constantly driven to investigate ways in which these innovations improve not only our workflows and the interior design industry – but the impact they can have on our client’s industries too.
