Perkins+Will Expands Hospitality Practice with Addition of Industry Expert Jacqueline McGee

McGee and team join Boston office to accelerate hotel, restaurant, and multi-family residential design work

Perkins+Will announced today that award-winning hospitality interior designer Jacqueline McGee and her team have joined the firm’s Boston office, helping to strengthen the firm’s hospitality practice while supporting McGee’s ongoing interior design work in hotels, restaurants, and residential projects nationwide.

McGee has more than 23 years of experience in both interior design, theater set design, and film design, including London theaters, the BBC, and motion pictures. Her work on global hotel and independent brands, restaurants, multifamily residential and single-family residential spans major urban centers across the country, from New York to Washington, D.C. to Seattle to Los Angeles. She is currently working on projects in Boston, San Diego, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, and Atlanta.

“I’ve always been driven by what I call ‘design with a capital D’: that is, design that makes a difference,” says McGee. “Whether designing for theater, bringing to life the production sets for television and film, or creating memorable hotel and restaurant experiences, my designs always serve a greater purpose for my clients and their guests. I am thrilled to be part of Perkins+Will as I continue place-making and storytelling through design.”

Manuel Cadrecha, who oversees Perkins+Will’s global corporate and commercial practice, says McGee will be based out of the firm’s Boston office but will collaborate closely with other offices across the firm to design hospitality and multi-family residential projects. “Jackie and her team’s expertise are going to be a great addition to our hospitality practice,” says Cadrecha.

“We’re so excited to welcome Jacqueline and her team to our firm as we continue to grow and win new projects,” says Robert Brown, managing director of Perkins+Will’s Boston office. “We see a great opportunity here to grow our hospitality practice while infusing our other practice areas with the principles of hospitality design. This speaks to the truly collaborative nature of our firm.”

McGee’s award-winning hospitality portfolio will build upon Perkins+Will's growing practice, which includes: Haymarket Square Hotel (Boston, Massachusetts), 1212 Lincoln Road (Miami, Florida), 5th and Virginia (Seattle, Washington), and AC Marriott (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)
