Lore Group Design

Thoughtful design and interesting use of space is at the heart of everything we do. Our in house design team, led by Creative Director Jacu Strauss, are inspired by our buildings, their history and the neighbourhoods in which they are located.

Thoughtful Design

There is nothing standard about what we do. Our hotels are as different as the cities and neighbourhoods in which they are located, and their storied designs takes their cue from their unique sense of place.

We think about every detail. For us, good design is not about stamping our own “look” on every project; instead, it’s about breathing new life into a building and creating spaces that work.

Jacu Strauss

Jacu Strauss is the Creative Director of Lore Group. Throughout the design process Jacu places emphasis on exploration and experimentation as a means to showcase the beauty and characteristics of each project and its context, uncovering the stories that bring to life the destination in which each property sits. 

In concepting and designing both Pulitzer Amsterdam and Riggs Washington DC, Jacu relocated to each destination in order to live and breathe them, ensuring that the properties reflect the communities around them.
