HBA launches 'Studio' division in US

Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA) launched the Studio division. Catering to a segment of budgeting owners and developers, Studio will offer locally accessible solutions and specialized designs for the US market. 


Based in Los Angeles, Studio comes off at the heels of the launches of Studio in Shanghai and New Delhi. The New Delhi Studio has completed projects in India, including Radisson Blu Hotel Faridabad, Royal Orchid Hotel Hyderabad, Courtyard Marriott Bangalore and pan-Asian restaurant Zazen. Studio Shanghai recently completed work on the Aloft Hotel Guangzhou. The Los Angeles Studio is currently working on the Radisson Rancho Bernardo and the Courtyard Marriott in Solana Beach, Calif.

Studio is working on a range of projects, from small to medium-sized hotels and resorts, to private residences, show flats, standalone restaurants, nightclubs and office lobbies – all in their domestic markets.

According to David Dunphy, principal of Studio in Los Angeles, for budget-driven hospitality projects in the US, the multi-disciplinary approach of Studio “gives owners the ability to outsource and completely streamline project execution while maintaining greater control over project schedules and budgets. All of this can happen while still providing excellent design that relates directly to the bottom line.”

HBA’s international network of offices and studios now extends from London, Hong Kong and Los Angeles to Atlanta, San Francisco, Melbourne in Australia, Dubai, New Delhi, Shanghai, Manila, Singapore and Tokyo. There are new offices in Moscow, Bangkok and Istanbul.
