Kirsten Fordyce-Wheeler and Daniel Herriott Bring New Leadership to San Francisco Interiors Clients
Two senior HOK interior design leaders are relocating to San Francisco to join the firm’s thriving Bay Area practice.
Kirsten Fordyce-Wheeler returns to North America as director of interiors for HOK in San Francisco. Fordyce-Wheeler has been on a five-year assignment in Doha, Qatar, leading the interior architecture and design of the Hamad International Airport Passenger Terminal Complex, a new 6.46 million-square-foot terminal that opened in May and will serve 30 million annual passengers.
During her 25-year career practicing interior architecture, Fordyce-Wheeler has worked in North America, Southeast Asia, Australia and the Middle East. Since joining HOK in 2004, she has led design teams for major commercial, corporate, healthcare and aviation projects. She brings an extraordinary talent for working with organizations to transform their visions into reality. Her projects reflect a distinct sense of function, aesthetics and value.
Director of Design for Interiors Daniel Herriott recently joined the San Francisco team from HOK’s London office. Since joining HOK in 2005, his experience includes corporate, commercial, retail, residential, mixed-use and product design projects.
Most recently, Herriott led the design of the BBC New Broadcasting House, a 484,400-square-foot, state-of-the-art interior renovation that incorporates new digital technology within a highly flexible workspace. The project was honored by Interior Design magazine as one of the Top 10 Design Projects of 2013.
