Interior Designer, Baskervill Hospitality Studio
As an interior designer in Baskervill's award-winning hospitality studio, Anna Kreyling, NCIDQ, has led ground up, prototype, and substantial renovation projects for select service, full service, and boutique brands—including numerous jobs for Marriott International, Hilton, IHG, and Hyatt—to name a few. She's also held in-house positions with an esteemed ownership group.
From understanding the psychology of how someone uses intimate spaces such as guestrooms to dissecting the best ways to foster larger-scale gatherings in public spaces—people and purpose are at the heart of Ms. Kreyling's design philosophy. Her early background in studio art and photography gives her an eye for framing up dynamic experiential designs. An important success metric? Balance. Form and function are equals in Ms. Kreyling's eye—beauty must be durable, and spaces should be intuitive enough for guests to navigate with confidence without losing the unexpected touches that make people want to explore and discover.
To her, design is a team sport that's best played when lots of perspectives and personalities can collide under one strong desire to give guests genuine “wow” moments. How she does it? Eager to listen to a vision and hungry to leverage untapped potential, Ms. Kreyling tends to listen more than talk, eager to leverage untapped potential by examining what makes the most sense holistically for a specific ownership group, brand, guest, and envisioned site for the property. She's relied upon to translate the brand ethos to physical spaces in a holistic manner to not only delight guests but also boost hoteliers' bottom line.
