Interior architectural design firm Pierre-Yves Rochon (PYR) has designed a wide range of iconic interiors for the world’s most prestigious luxury properties.

Building on a legacy of several successful projects in Greater China (including The Ritz Carlton Tianjin ), the firm is poised to expand its presence in the region. Spearheading this effort is business development director Christina Yao, who brings to PYR a decade of expertise in connecting developers, designers and hotel operators in the Asia Pacific region.

“We are extremely proud of the work that we have done in Shanghai, Beijing, Tianjin, and Hong Kong over the years and are excited to bring PYR’s unique design approach to the growing number of luxury developments in China. Now that we have greater representation in the market, we look forward to working with property owners and developers here, helping them to realise their visions for success,” says Yao.

Founded in 1979 by Parisian interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon, the firm has worked with international hotel brands such as Four Seasons, Ritz-Carlton, Waldorf Astoria and Peninsula, as well as luminaries of the culinary world like Joël Robuchon and Jean-Georges Vongerichten.

Additionally, PYR’s bespoke furniture, fixture, lighting, and accessory design services have resulted in commercial product lines for international brands such as Lalique, THG, Veronese, and Ligne Roset.
