Inhabiting space – Tina Kirschner talks style with Karma

As a leading designer for Karma Resorts, Tina Kirschner has interpreted her indelible signature style for Karma properties worldwide.

Since 2011, Kirschner has worked on some of Karma’s biggest projects, including Karma Kandara’s di Mare restaurant, Karma’s Goan gem, Haathi Mahal, and Karma Bavaria. It was in Bavaria that Kirschner first met Karma Founder and Global Chairman, John Spence.

“I’m from Munich originally; my parents owned a building company there”, says Kirschner over the phone – she’s in Bali working on a project. “I was never really interested in the structural side of things, but I developed a passion for design at a very young age.”

Designing space

When Karma purchased what would become Karma Bavaria in 2011, Kirschner was hired to reimagine the resort’s signature restaurant, Karmasee. Then came numerous projects, including a recent project refurbishing Karma Bavaria’s fractionally owned apartments.
