About Us

Since its launch in 2001, AvroKO has earned a reputation as one of the world’s most innovative design firms, due in large part to our integrated design process and focus on creating emotionally connected experiences. In the past decade, the firm has grown to four offices (New York City, Bangkok, San Francisco, and London) working on projects across 22 countries in 32 cities, launched over a dozen company owned-and-operated restaurants, created a furniture and lighting company (Goodshop), and established a stand-alone hospitality branding and strategy agency (Brand Bureau).

Our critically hailed portfolio includes restaurants, bars, hotels, retail, residential and mixed-use projects from New York to Hong Kong, all characterized by a unique convergence between the ideals of the past and an off-beat, forward-looking sensibility.

The James Beard Awards, Hospitality Design Awards, and HA&D Award are among those that have recognized our interior design.
