Located in Central, the heart of Hong Kong’s Finance and Restaurant district, Sketch represents originality and attention to detail with a hands-on approach to all projects, each project is overseen and driven by a director, from concept to completion.
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. We have worked with various hospitality groups such as Intercontinental Hotels, Starwood Hotels & Resorts and Hilton across Asia.
Sketch is fronted by founder, David Buffery who 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 crucial, 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.
Sketch also provides the following services;
Artwork selection. Sketch can provide specific artwork selections with selected mounts and frames with specific locations within the interior space to a given budget.
Accessorizing services. We can work to a specified budget and provide the finishing touches to the completed areas through the selection of objet d’art.
Graphics & Signage. These two elements are integral to the interior design of any completed space. We provide themed menu designs, logos and in-room stationery. Signage should be informative and fully coordinate with the interior.
Uniform Design. Working with a nominated supplier we can draw upon our collective fashion experience and provide a uniform concept which ties in with the interior theme.
