For clients wanting cutting-edge
interiors, Tara Bernerd’s interior architecture
and design practice
operates on a global platform. The
look is ‘industrial glamour’, with statement
colour, hard surfaces and luxurious materials.
Prior to launching her practice in
2002, Tara amassed experience in the commercial
property and interiors sectors, joining Yoo,
Philippe Starck’s global property company, and
overseeing the launch of its boutique arm, Yoo
Too. Today, her Belgravia studio has a team of
15 architects and designers.
Tara works for select clients on private
projects: ongoing is a penthouse overlooking
Central Park in New York. Recent commissions
include the multimillion-dollar redesign of the
Sixty Soho hotel in New York, the redesign of
bedrooms and suites at Hotel Russell in Bloomsbury,
and interior design for the Wood Wharf
development in Canary Wharf.
