A sketch is an initial concept, created as a confirmation of an idea to take forward and develop into a design. At Sketch we work on this principle and creating interior and furniture design concepts to produce unique, stand-alone solutions.
We enjoy the challenge of working on new build or refurbishment projects, to date we have been involved in Casino, Restaurant, Bars, Marine and Hospitality projects including an Opera House. With our collective experience we have worked with various hospitality groups such as Intercontinental Hotels, Starwood Hotels & Resorts and Hilton across Asia.
The company was founded in 2006 by David Buffery who has over twenty years in the design business and is well known for his creativity working on a diversity of projects from Casinos, 5 star Hotels, Restaurants and Yachts. He assumes responsibility for all aspects of the company’s operations and projects, generally David is involved from planning to completion normally fronting the project at the design concept and planning phases and taking a more overseeing role during the design development and documentation phases.
Director, Shirley Kwong is the creative inspiration behind many of the projects, creating unique conceptual schemes drawing on her passion for fashion and all things eclectic. Shirley is also responsible for the FF&E documentation, site dressing out and accessorizing of all projects.
