Philip Hooper

“…you’re there to make people comfortable. Whether you’re working in an 18th century idiom, a modernist style, or on some place in the tropics, it’s always about having somewhere to sit. Having somewhere to put your feet up, a light to read by, somewhere to put a drink down…”

~ Philip Hooper


Upon graduating from Canterbury College of Art with a degree in architecture, Philip Hooper worked for John Stefanidis Ltd, where he was the principal designer on a number of large-scale projects.

After setting up his own practice, concentrating on projects with a strong architectural emphasis, Philip joined Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler in 2001.

His career has taken him all over the world with high profile work in the United Kingdom, the United States and the Caribbean. A self-confessed chameleon, Philip is comfortable working in a variety of styles – tailoring each design to the specifics of the site; drawing inspiration from the history of the building and its locale.

Philip’s background as an architect enables him to think about everything from the foundations upwards when commencing a new project, and his skill as a draftsman gives him the ability to convey ideas visually when working along side clients.

Philip’s projects feature prominently in magazines and international interior design.
