Margaret McMahon has had a storied career. After a summer of windsurfing, McMahon’s mother encouraged her to find work at a temp agency. As luck, or fate, would have it, that led her to Trisha Wilson of Wilson Associates, who “saw something in me that I didn’t see in myself,” says McMahon. After three decades with Wilson, she left to helm Wimberly Interiors, the design arm of architecture firm WATG in New York, which now boasts multiple offices and a vast portfolio of high-end hospitality and residential projects that can be credited to McMahon’s passion, savvy, and fearlessness.
With an insatiable appetite for adventure, his professional and personal life has seen him traverse the globe, establishing an impressive portfolio of projects across Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Latin America.
As we launch a new monthly travel column to coincide with our 75th anniversary, it would only make sense to start with Hawaii – the birthplace of our firm.
To commemorate 75 years of WATG, our designers have put their collective jetsetting experience to paper to launch “WATG Travel by Design”.
Welcome to 2020. Pause here for a moment and think about this. 2020. We’re entering a new decade, and a new year.
