Sara Duffy helms the interiors division of Stonehill Taylor and is one of the few women principals who leads a major hospitality design firm. 

Sara was a major force in the transformation of the TWA Hotel at JFK airport in 2019, and during the pandemic it was Sara’s leadership that helped to keep her firm on course. The recent renovations of the Marriott Marquis and the Algonquin are a testament to her dogged determination and leadership skills even during the most difficult days of the last two years.   

Sara’s background includes growing up in Manhattan, a degree in Art History, a stint at MTV, and several years as a designer at Rockwell Group. Her list of Stonehill Taylor projects include those in the Big Apple as well as hotels in Nashville and Las Vegas.  

Sara has been interviewed in Interior Design MagazineMadame ArchitectDesign MilkIFDM , and in ArchNative’s Women Who Inspire series. She also shared some of her hospitality experiences with Dan Ryan on the podcast,  Defining Hospitality and spoke about breathing new life into historic hotels with host David Kepron on the podcast NXTLVL experience design. Sara has also served on the juries for several prestigious awards such as Frame and Ahead. She is undeniably someone who shapes the thinking around design.
