Director, Dexter Moren Associates
Dexter Moren is recognised as an industry leader in the hotel & leisure sector. He is the founding director of London-based architecture and interior design practice Dexter Moren Associates. His award-winning team of 50 people recently completed the landmark Hilton London Bankside and are currently leading the design of new Aloft, Arthotel, Dorsett, Gansevoort, Hyatt, Indigo, Westin and individually branded boutique hotels in London, as well as projects throughout the UK, Europe and Africa.
Dexter is a graduate of the University of Witwatersrand Johannesburg, Columbia University New York and the Architectural Association London. His first hotel was the iconic Marine Parade Garden Court on Durban’s North Beach for which he was commissioned at just 28. He is enthused to have recently designed an innovative dual-brand hotel presently under construction in Cape Town for the same client.
Dexter is driven by the joy of creative collaboration, both within the practice and with clients and contractors, and strives to place a design-led ethos of ‘creating places people want to stay’ at the heart of every project.
