Patrick has been working within the hospitality sector of interior design from the onset of his career where his first employment was with Richmond Design in London UK. Leaving London for Singapore in 1992 Patrick joined the Wilson Associates four man team and assisted the growth of that office as Deputy Managing Director to a staff strength of over 150 people, leaving in 2007 to set up in partnership with Susan Heng at Silverfox Studios.
Patrick’s experience within the hospitality field, specifically with F&B design include partnering with restaurateur’s, hotel operators, chefs, kitchen equipment manufacturers and hotel developers, to create and implement hotel F&B strategies and concepts. Examples of projects include: The Park Hyatt Dubai, Old Town Commercial Island (a 4 Hotel Development including The Armani Hotel, Burj Khalifa), Armani Milan, The Hilton Luxor Egypt, The Grand Hyatt Shenzhen and Heng Qin China, The Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Oman (a 3 Hotel Development), the Mandarin Oriental Hotel’s Dubai, Singapore and Shenzhen China, Vida Hills Dubai, The W Hotel Dubai and W Hotel Amman Jordan.
With an extensive knowledge of the inter-disciplinary aspects of design and building systems Patrick / Silverfox are blurring the lines between interior, exterior, landscape, master planning and architecture and have undertaken commissions to develop buildings which are purpose built stand alone structures, such as piers out to sea, pavilions, villa complexes and restaurant pagodas. The construction of many such projects is underway and we look forward to the opening of these “total” designed solutions as we progress through 2017 and beyond.
