The life of interior designer Thomas Griem is almost as jet-set as some of his clients. Thomas, a German-born, German-trained, London-based architect/interior designer has recently been in Hong Kong to oversee a project. Before that he was visiting Russia, Ibiza and other European cities. Griem considers working in different time zones on different projects as all part of a normal day’s work “I really like it and never get tired of it. I remain really interested in residential, in how people live and how to do really clever things with property” he says. Griem came to London after studying architecture at Berlin’s Hochschule der Kunste, which he followed with a diploma in architecture from the University of Westminster. Before deciding to form his own practice in 2011 (TG Studio) he was a partner in Target Living, a company he founded with interior designer Tara Bernerd whom he met when they were both working as designers for property development company Yoo. Griem and Bernerd spent the next decade creating strong and contemporary schemes for a variety of commercial and residential clients.
