For the past couple of years, Animulas has been contracted to develop and maintain guideline designs consisting of schematic design packages and design guideline drawings for the food and beverage outlets and services for the Asia Pacific region in Aloft Hotels, Element Hotels and Moxy Hotels – all portfolio brands of Marriott International.

Eelco Böhtlingk, Director, Design Development Operations, Marriott International Asia Pacific has been kind enough to contribute with a few words on the collaboration:

“I started my work relationship with Johan back in 2018. He was already doing work for our team at Marriott Asia Pacific at the time and I was happy I could take that over as over the last two years we accomplished great things together.

Johan developed detailed interior designs for three of our Select Service hotel brands that allowed us to localize our F&B design to Asia Pacific. Through the detailed documentation he did, we are able to roll this out with great consistency in our hotel project work. This was an intense process and I found Johan to be extremely professional and detailed oriented at all times – even more so as we completed these large projects remotely. This is a testament to his excellent communication skills. The solutions he suggested were creative, realistic and mindful of sustainability – the work was delivered in a timely fashion, in documentation that exceeded my expectations. The work even caught the attention of our other teams who are in talks to engage Johan on further work.

We are still a client of Johan and will continue to be in the future if he allows us to – very happy to have met & work with him.”
