Maria is an established thought-leader within the
hospitality design world, admired for her roll-call of beautiful and
ingeniously designed projects, sought out by discerning property owners and
respected for the value she brings to all her work. She is as confident in
imagining large, imposing spaces as she is in creating intimate, cosy
interiors; whether designing the boldly contemporary or within the classical
genre, she draws on location and cultural heritage and creates something unique.
An architect by training and an interior designer by choice, she combines
visionary use of space with design that reaches out beyond trend, that is
commercially astute, innovative and delightfully surprising.

Maria established MKV Design in London in 2000 after an
early career which had taken her from Athens to Milan and onto the UK. Since
then, she has cultivated a business which has worked across Europe, in the Middle
East and in Africa. Current/recent projects include: the Sheraton Grand London
Park Lane; The Grand Hyatt Hotel & Residences, Abu Dhabi; The Royal Savoy,
Lausanne; Bürgenstock Hotel, Switzerland; Palace Hotel, Bürgenstock Resort,
Switzerland; Alpine Spa, Bürgenstock Resort, Switzerland; Hotel Kempinski
Corvinus, Budapest; Makedonia Palace Hotel, Thessaloniki, Greece; and Costa
Navarino, Messinia, Greece, as well as a number of private residential
