Born in Hong Kong, raised in rural Montana and Los Angeles, Ms. Wong has a unique global view of the luxury lifestyle business. She launched her Los Angeles-based architecture firm, Dianna Wong Architecture + Interior Design, in 1998 and has worked on projects as diverse as the swanky W Hotel in Washington D.C., Caesars Golf Macau and the megaresort, Baha Mar in Nassau, The Bahamas.
Ms. Wong has multi-disciplinary training in architecture, interior design, fine arts and the decorative arts. She studied environmental design and architecture at Harvard and completed her Masters in Architecture at Cambridge University, England where she developed her deep appreciation of the decorative arts.
Although her trademark is a blend of classicism and modernity, sparing use of color and simple geometry, her real focus is not on style, but on solving problems using space and proportion. The style of each of her projects is different, and reflects a unique "storyline". Her architectural frameworks are infused with romantic references to the best of modernist design and extend to the detailing of furnishings and decorative elements.
