Kevin Mclachlan, Founder/CCO, NOMADK Design

Scottish born Kevin Mclachlan is a driven, multi-talented and award-winning design visionary based in Dubai where he has recently launched a new creative design studio NOMADK.

The new studio is many things and largely formed without boundaries or preconceptions in terms of direction. As a design studio, it serves as a collaborative flexible hub for creatives to deliver highly tailored and specialised interior brand experiences for a new future, importantly with a high focus on clients‘ needs and resources.  NOMADK is somewhat of a departure from Kevin’s previous work being much more focused on the quality of design ideas, the customer experience, clients’ dreams and the team’s individual ideas and goals.  Importantly NOMADK is more strategic in its vision of its clients’ futures in a rapidly changing environment.

In 2018 Kevin received ‘Best Middle East hotel award’ for Mysk Hotel, Muscat ( and completed the designs for a new Chedi resort and spa on Palm Jumeirah Dubai and the world’s first Warner Bros hotel in Abu Dhabi both opening in 2020.  Kevin has over 30 years of design experience in the UK, North Africa and the Middle East including spells with both LW Design and GAJ.
