ALLISON COOKe
PRINCIPAL, DIRECTOR OF HOSPITALITY DESIGN | CORE ARCHITECTURE + DESIGN

this Midwest native didn't just launch her career in Washington, D.C., she's

making her mark on its hospitality landscape. "There's so much new development
happening that we're at a critical point in shaping some of our neighborhoods on the
street level," she says. A case in point is the capital's first Nobu restaurant/residential
development, for which CORE served as the executive architect. (The restaurant was
designed by Studio PCH in collaboration with CORE.) Another example is Silver, a
soon-to-open American brasserie concept near the National Cathedral. Cooke details
her approach to creating such venues in the Exit Interview on page 92.

DAVID bOWD
CEO | SALT HOTELS and PRINCIPAL | WEST ELM HOTELS

left high school in his native U.K. at age 15 to take a bellman's job at a luxury hotel, and
worked his way up from there. The former chief operating officer of Balasz Properties and
managing director of Ian Schrager Co. rode keen instincts and hard work to the top of the
boutique scene before founding his own company, Salt Hotels, whose portfolio includes
the iconic Asbury Hotel. (He's also scheduled to take part in the "Lifestyle Leaders" panel
at Boutique Design New York (BDNY) in November.) For a look at how Bowd's latest
disruptive move-heading up the launch of crossover concept west elm Hotels-is
shaking up secondary cities in the U.S., turn to "Travel Guides" on page 28.

DOrOtH√Če meILICHZON
FOUNDER | CHZON

Meilichzon takes a personal approach to her designs. "I modernize my designs
with patterns that reflect trends or my obsessions of the time," she says of her work in
historic buildings, such as the one that became London's Henrietta Hotel. For more on
her vision for that project, see "Insider Stories" on page 52. Since founding her design
firm in 2009, she's leveraged experience gained working for such companies as brand
consultancy Landor and game maker Hasbro in creating more than 30 hospitality
projects. That high-profile portfolio includes Paris' Grand Pigalle hotel and several other
venues for Henrietta's owner, Experimental Cocktail Group.
