KRISTINA O’NEAL

PARTNER, AVROKO

Kristina O’Neal’s New York-headquartered design-and-concept firm AvroKO is equally adept at the disciplines of architecture, furniture, graphics and even fashion. She shares the helm with three additional partners – William Harris, Greg Bradshaw and Adam Farmerie – each contributing a unique vision to the company’s multifaceted design mission. Since its creation in 2001, AvroKO has grown to a staff of over 46 in its NYC office, 25 in its Bangkok office, and 10 in its San Francisco office. Its active portfolio of architecture projects, including restaurants, bars, and hotels, spans 7 countries and 21 cities worldwide and has garnered numerous accolades, including two James Beard Awards, six Hospitality Design Awards, two HA + D awards and the Lawrence J. Israel Prize. AvroKO’s “self-propelled” projects, which are wholly conceived, designed, owned, and operated by the company, include PUBLIC, The Daily, Saxon + Parole and Madam Geneva in NYC; The Thomas in Napa, CA; and Saxon + Parole, Moscow.

ON TRAVEL: “We talk a lot about connectivity at AvroKO, and in particular the physical or emotional interaction between people and places. The ideal modern travel experience allows for delight in a locale and a sense of meaning in the connections made there.”
