Stepping outside traditional bounds to build an interior design firm that would prioritize the creative process and inspire collaboration with clients, Lisa Simeone founded Simeone Deary Design Group with Gina Deary in 2002. In 2021, with a collective vision to create a fully integrated architecture, branding, interiors and planning practice, Simeone Deary joined forces with KTGY Architecture + Planning. Today, KTGY Simeone Deary Design Group delivers unique experiential spaces to hospitality, retail and entertainment clients as well as residential and mixed-use developers, owners and operators.
With an expertise in positioning lifestyle and hospitality brands in the global marketplace, Lisa is renowned worldwide for delivering high-end luxury and forward-thinking authenticity through experiential design. As an industry leader, Lisa is sought out to direct the design trajectory of highly visible and well-known brands and has led the conceptualization and design direction of luxury hotels, landmark and adaptive reuse projects, as well as new builds. Her expansive portfolio includes not only brands, but boutique and celebrity projects in North America, Europe and Asia. Central to this success is Lisa’s commitment to a collaborative company culture and a passion for developing the unique talents of each designer.
