Billy Quimby

Every project is an opportunity to create a unique, detailed design vocabulary that sets the scene of experience.

Billy Quimby’s fascination with space has acted as a philosophical boomerang throughout his life and career. His early introduction to the way space can shape peoples experiences came from his own experience sharing a small home in update New York with his parents and six siblings. Dreaming up fantastical houses with space for all led Billy to pursue a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Cornell University, with the goal of becoming a residential architect.

Moving west in 2000, Billy joined BAMO and discovered the world of interiors, designing for hospitality and residential clients around the world. A brief sojourn to Los Angeles allowed him to further explore and develop his technical knowledge, as an architect for a residential design-build firm, but the draw of spatial experience was strong and quickly led him back to interiors, and BAMO, in 2008. With an expanded vision, Billy was enabled to extend his expertise from architecture to interior architectural design and custom installations. Challenged very early in his career at BAMO to focus on intricately detailing his projects from concept to completion, Billy prides himself on creating meticulous backdrops on which to layer the design story. As a Principal of BAMO and registered architect, he has a masterful ability to find balance and harmony in the most complex of projects, easily navigating and imposing his contemporary vision with resourceful, hands-on execution.

The recently completed Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach was honored with a 2015 Gold Key Award, and joins Billy’s collection of work including the Taj Mahal Palace Mumbai, Four Seasons Doha, The Grand Hotel a Villa Feltrinelli, the revamp of the Ritz-Carlton Chicago, and private homes in Hong Kong and California. His projects have been featured in Architectural Digest, Boutique Design, Interior Design, Modern Luxury Interiors and Town & Country.  Billy is also a Boutique 18 Award Winner.
