Architect Jean-Michel Gathy heads hotel developments around the world

Award-winning architectural and interior-desiger Jean-Michel Gathy has embarked on a stellar year, with five new hotel openings planned and the announcement of major master plan projects.

Principal designer of Denniston, which he founded in 1993, Jean Michel Gathy is acknowledged as ‘the Architect's Architect’ - creator of some of the world's most luxurious hotels including properties for Aman, Mandarin Oriental, and Cheval Blanc. 

Many of these have revolutionised high-end travel and the tourism economy of several countries, pioneering the use of tents as luxury accommodation, over-water hammocks and elevating hotel architecture and design to game-changing new levels.

The 2020 openings will include:

Four Seasons, Bangkok, mid 2020: Interior design and landscaping, with unique river frontage on Chao Phraya River, a dominance of water features and garden courtyards and a collection of art installations curated by Gathy.

Four Seasons, Tokyo, mid 2020: Interior design – the property is unique in entirely overlooking the Imperial Palace so that one challenge has been to respect the laws that forbid looking ‘down’ on the Emperor.

One&Only, Montenegro, July 2020: Architect, designer and landscaper, carefully melding the aesthetics of Venice, the Ottoman empire and the vernacular of Montenegro.

Jumeirah, Bali, Summer 2020: Interior design taking as its theme the colonial Royal of the 1940s.

Aman, New York, December 2020: A massive project in the iconic Crown building on fifth Avenue.

Further projects across the world include properties in China, Venice, Tokyo, Singapore, Dubai, Miami, the Bahamas and Panama. Uniquely, Denniston is working on four properties in Bali alone, including a W hotel, a Mandarin Oriental and a Cheval Blanc as well as the Jumeirah opening this summer.
