Lachmee Chin, Director of Interior Design
Lachmee Chin joined the organization in 2005. Hired to establish and lead the Interior Design division of the firm, Ms. Chin’s persistence and tireless attention to clients while establishing the studio matured into the driving ideal of interior design at ODP.
Ms. Chin’s diverse heritage, as well as her background in fine art, are the foundation on which she builds the culturally-rich finesse necessary in this era of globally-inspired design. She enjoys pushing the boundaries of design to deliver environments crafted for purposeful use and enjoyment. She drives her team to go beyond what is expected, and instead deliver the nearly-intangible what-could-be-idea. Equating great design to great cooking, Ms. Chin believes no recipe is constant but instead malleable to different moments and passions.
Her energetic and positive work ethic and strong vendor relationships permeate the studio with grace and manner that allows ODP to develop and maintain a world-class design organization that continually sets new standards for design and lifestyle.
Recent accolades include the 2017 Kitchen & Bath Design Awards and 2013 AIA Design Excellence Awards. Lachmee has a National Certification for Interior Design Qualification and is licensed in the state of Florida; she currently serves as Interior Design critic for design studios at Florida International University (FIU); As a successful designer, mentoring future interior designers and architects so they can achieve their own success is paramount.
