TPG Architecture, a New York City-based design firm, has appointed a new managing executive, Shay Lam.
Lam joined TPG Architecture in 2016 and has dedicated the past three years to building a strong roster of clients. In his time as studio creative director, he led a variety of projects within TPG Architecture’s growing hospitality practice.
Most recently, Lam and his team completed the design for Citadines Apart’Hotels—a division of The Ascott Limited in New York. The design team was tasked with creating a home away from home for guests while capturing the urban feel of New York City. Located in Midtown, ‘Citadines Connect Fifth Avenue’ reimagined the city’s iconic brownstone residences with a modern spin. Additional work includes projects for clients such as Marriott, Mack-Cali and Gunung Sewu Kencana in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Prior to joining TPG Architecture, he led design efforts at WeWork for WeLive, worked at Perkins Eastman Architects with a specialization in residential and hospitality interiors, and is an alumni of Tonychi and Associates in New York and Tamotsu Yagi Design in California.
