history services

Internationally acclaimed design firm, Wilson Associates was founded in 1971 by Trisha Wilson, who built the brand around creating interiors for hotels, restaurants, clubs, casinos, and high-end residential properties.

Specializing in interior architectural design, Wilson Associates is consistently named as one of the top hospitality interior design firms in the world. To date, the firm has designed and installed more than 1 million guestrooms in thousands of hotels worldwide and has a client list that includes more than 20 of the world’s top 100 billionaires.

On February 28, 2014, Wilson Associates joined forces with East China Architectural Design & Research Institute Co., Ltd. (ECADI), a company affiliated to Shanghai Xian Dai Architectural Design (Group) Co., Ltd. ECADI is a progressive, award-winning company that has completed more than 30,000 landmark design and consulting projects. ECADI’s influential reputation is evidenced by their design of five of the world’s tallest buildings. The partnership combines the expertise of two leading global companies to create a dominant new force in the architectural design industry.

The firm’s design philosophy is simple: design for the market. No specific "style" or "look" is attributed to the firm. Instead, Wilson Associates creates custom interiors for each client, conducting extensive research to fulfill each owner and operator’s unique vision. Each project is brought to life through the incorporation of architectural details and decor positioned by local craftsmen to enhance geographical flavor and add value, while setting a global design standard.

Blending experience, innovation, technology, sustainability and solid business principles, the firm creates properties that define luxury and elegance and deliver an unforgettable hospitality experience.
