About Us

Steve La Bouchardiere and Simon McCarthy founded DesignLSM in 1988. Over the last 29 years the practice has grown around their creative passion in hospitality design.

Today our multi-discipline practice provides innovative design and creative consultancy for a diverse portfolio of world class clients, ranging from independents to iconic brands from within the hospitality and retail industry.

Whilst the majority of our projects are UK based, our international portfolio includes work for clients in Europe, the Middle East, Central Asia, South East Asia and North America.

We encourage a spirit of collaboration with our clients, colleagues and suppliers which creates lasting relationships and enables us to deliver engaging and memorable environments and experiences.
