Award-winning Newcastle interior design consultancy achieves worldwide success

The year ends “on a high note” for Jesmond-based award-winning interior design consultancy Dakota House of Design, with commissions up at least 30 per cent on pre-Covid levels and new instructions coming not just from the UK not down, but from Europe and beyond.

With “extensive” knowledge of leisure, hospitality and residential interiors, Dakota is “known for its talented and highly experienced team” who work in locations throughout the UK and Europe and can count many blue-chip operators as clients.

The company started the year with a bar renovation project in Basel, Switzerland on Steinenvorstadt, one of Basel’s busiest pedestrian streets and the same street as Soho, an earlier, successful design project that Dakota undertook.

By April, Dakota was briefed on the design of a restaurant and visitor center at the base of the Kuwait Water Towers, a world heritage site, and in October Genting Casinos approached the company to work on a renovation project for its casino in Cairo. .

It was a repeat of business for Dakota who initially produced the design for the casino in 2019 when it was an acquisition site in a Hilton hotel on the Nile.

Now owned by Genting Casinos and operating under the Crockfords brand, it has a “very high-end aesthetic” and this level of quality and styling should also inform the refurbishment of the Cairo venue, where the main gaming floor, round lounge bar area and toilets will be renovated, starting on site in March and finishing in April.

In January, director Peter Hodgson will fly over to Thessaloniki to redesign the Vergina Theater Regency Casino, which is a Vegas-style live theater and the largest in Greece.

Peter said: “We are delighted with the way business is shaping up. It certainly shows no signs of slowing down. The casinos and hotels we have worked on in the recent past have been talked about very positively throughout the industry and much of the work has come through word of mouth.

“The Thessaloniki project was a big boost for the end of the year. The height of the building poses some challenges, and we are looking at ways we can introduce some special lighting effects at ceiling level to maximize the potential of this current space.

“The team has worked so hard through 2022 that we are pushing the boat out by celebrating with a Christmas party in Alicante this year, which will include a food tour. It will be a good end to a very successful year. Everyone is looking forward to it!”
