Pre­vi­ously one of the founders of the well-known firm, Bishop De­sign, So­hoel launched her mul­tidis­ci­plinary prac­tice 2015, and has gone on to have a pres­ence in the UK with the open­ing of a Lon­don of­fice ear­lier this year. With up­scale res­i­den­tial projects in the UAE and the UK al­ready in the bag, the Nor­we­gian na­tive has worked with clients such as Emaar, W Ho­tels, The Fair­mont Ho­tel and Dubai Prop­er­ties. At the re­cently con­cluded Dubai De­sign Week 2018, So­hoel de­signed a vir­tual re­al­ity pavil­ion, called The Space Be­tween, high­light­ing the im­por­tance of us­ing VR tech­nol­ogy in the fields of in­te­rior de­sign and ar­chi­tec­ture.

She reg­u­larly con­trib­utes to the city’s aca­demic frame­work by un­der­tak­ing men­tor­ing pro­grammes, such as those with the Amer­i­can Univer­sity of Dubai. Among the re­cently com­pleted projects by the firm is the show apart­ment for W Ho­tels and Res­i­dences, as well as sev­eral lux­ury res­i­dences. Not the least, the port­fo­lio also in­cludes the Float­ing Casino in Ma­cau, which is cur­rently un­der con­struc­tion.
