Introducing Natalie Louey

Natalie Louey has joined HASSELL as Principal to be based in the Singapore studio before moving to Melbourne later in the year.

Natalie joins HASSELL with more than 20 years’ experience working in both Australia and Singapore. As an interior designer with a strong focus on hospitality projects, her work has enabled her to complete projects in SE Asia, Japan, Middle East, India, Africa and Australia.

‘Natalie’s hospitality experience and contribution is broad both throughout Asia and globally. Her expertise, passion and commitment to quality outcomes will bolster the depth of our already strong global team,’ said HASSELL Principal and Hospitality sector leader Paul Semple.

In the ten years Natalie has been in Singapore she has been working with diverse brands such as Hyatt, Hilton, IHG, Mandarin Oriental, Singapore Airlines and Cathay, and has also been invited to provide concepts for projects such as the QE2 ocean liner and the heritage classic Galle Face Hotel in Colombo.

“It has become so important to be able to understand the insights that are driving the trends in lifestyle destinations. We have to be future thinking and confidently steer design towards the new ways we live, work and travel,” said Natalie.

Most recently Natalie has worked on projects including a Hotel Indigo and a Jumeriah Hotel in Bali, a Citigold Retail Banking flagship and the implementation of a Cathay Lounge in Changi Airport. The diversity of projects has provided an opportunity to see how sectors cross over and essentially how important it is to understand the underlying aspirations of the businesses.

“The most engaging part of any project is listening to the vision of stakeholders, staff and end users. Creating lifestyle destinations with touchpoints that can change the way people use and remember the space is the most exciting part of the process,” said Natalie.
