D&D are specialists in hospitality – facilities that are designed specifically for public accommodation. We were founded in 1994 to serve clients seeking design excellence by combining architecture with interior design.
We’ve worked with most of the major international hotel companies and other leading corporate clients to design distinctive spaces focused on lifestyle and guest experience. Our projects have taken us coast to coast, including Western Canada, plus internationally to Japan and China. No two projects are ever alike.
Our experience as hospitality designers dates back nearly 30 years when the principals, Anita L. Degen, IIDA and Jeffrey S. Degen, AIA NCARB worked together at Marriott International in Washington, DC. Their experience as hotels designers included executive positions with Marriott, Westin, and Lufthansa Hotels in Berlin Germany before finally establishing their own firm in Seattle.
