dwp welcomes Leonard Lee

Leonard brings significant experience in the hospitality sector globally

dwp welcomes Leonard Lee to the company in a major expansion of high quality hospitality design services across the group. Leonard has significant experience in the hospitality sector globally and joins us from Wilsons Associates where he was MD of Singapore and Japan. A very well known figure in the hospitality industry, Leonard is joined by a very strong team of designers from his previous practice which will further add to the strong presence dwp has in this sector.

By joining dwp Leonard is delighted to be able to offer continuity of service with his team to multiple clients across Asia Pacific and Middle East regions. Leonard has designed numerous award-winning projects around the world for a variety of international brands, including Ritz-Carlton, Conrad, Capella, JW Marriott, Shangri-La, and Langham to mention a few.


dwp founder and Creative Director Scott Whittaker said “We work as part of a very close-knit global design community, and when our industry colleagues get into difficulty we reach out to help. This was the case for example when global design firm Wilson Associates recently filed for liquidation, and we were able to offer jobs to many of their staff and to offer project continuity for their clients. We are delighted to welcome Leonard and this new team to dwp. This presents our clients with many benefits, combining our existing dwp design strengths with the additional depth of high-end skills that our new combined team of people can offer on hospitality and workplace design projects.”
