Powerlist Creative 30 2023: Delvene LEE Head of Interior Design, KEO INTERNATIONAL CONSULTANTS
Delvene Lee serves as the Head of Interior Design at KEO International Consultants. She holds both a bachelor’s degree in interior design and a master’s in architecture. Her 18 years of industry experience drives the creative force behind KEO’s interior design projects.
Delvene’s passion for art drives her creative process and design concepts. Her ultimate goal with every design project is to improve the end user’s wellbeing and experience, thus she is especially interested in psychology and how the built environment impacts the human psyche. Accordingly, designers like Tadao Ando and SANAA are her biggest creative influences as their works integrate art with psychology, creating architecture that focusses on the inner self, nature, spirituality, and contextual connection.
Prior to joining KEO, Delvene led the interior design of a staff village project in KSA, developing the interiors for the building facilities that address the needs of over 30,000 residents. She was also the Lead Interior Designer for both Creek Gate, a high-rise residential development in Dubai Creek Harbour, and a mixed-use building featuring a stacked ‘live-work-play’ neighborhood. She was also the Lead Interior Designer for Ciel Tower, a 360m-tall tower currently being constructed in Dubai Marina, set to be the tallest hotel tower in the world upon completion.
