Daroff Design Inc. + DDI Architects, PC (DDI) has expanded its long-standing professional practice in South Florida by engaging Jupiter, Florida based Anna Woodman as Hospitality Design Principal.
Anna Woodman, a talented and well-respected interior designer, has operated her own studio, Anna Schmidt Interior Design, since 2003, specializing in the design of upscale independent and nationwide branded restaurants, bars, and clubs.

Having built an extremely successful restaurant and hospitality design resume throughout her professional career, Anna has been named a Principal with internationally recognized DDI who specializes in the hospitality industry.
As a Principal at Daroff Design, Anna will leverage her proven design expertise and project management leadership as she manages hospitality design projects for Daroff Design clients nation-wide. Anna will be bringing her clients into the Daroff Design portfolio. By joining Daroff Design, Anna will continue to provide her talented interior design skills to both her and Daroff Design’s hospitality clients while the architects and designers at DDI will provide the bench strength to achieve more high-quality client projects.

“Anna’s work speaks for itself – she has a full portfolio of beautiful, high-end restaurant, hotel and other commercial projects and a long list of satisfied clients,” said Karen Daroff, IIDA, President and Design Principal of Daroff Design. “We’re very excited that Anna will help lead our hospitality team and look forward to expanding our professional services in Florida and nation-wide.”
