Studio 11 Design has hired architecture and design veteran Matthew Beam as studio director.
Beam brings 20 years of experience to the Dallas-based full-service hospitality interior design firm. Prior to joining Studio 11, he was a design leader at Omniplan and an associate principal/senior architectural designer at CallisonRTKL (formerly Callison). Beam’s past projects include The Westin Boston Waterfront hotel; the La Plaza Mall renovation and expansion in McAllen, Texas; and the Block 23 mixed-use development in Phoenix.
“Design is the result of careful integration of the client’s aspirations, the project’s programmatic requirements and the nature and character of the place,” says Beam, adding that he aims to continue finding what’s “unique and important within a given project and to express that architecturally.”
