Founded in New York in 1984 by one of the top interior designers and architects of North America, David Rockwell, The Rockwell Group is one of the most prolific and powerful Design and Architectural Studios in New York!
This amazing group creates annually some of the most extraordinary designs all around the world, and is one of the biggest employers of Interior Designers and Architects in the United States. It currently has over 250 people in its offices in New York, Madrid and Shanghai. As you can imagine, the Rockwell Groups specializes in a wide array of work from luxury hospitality, cultural, and healthcare projects, to educational, product, and set design.
The group has won quite a few awards in the recent years and it’s superb projects have been featured on some of the Best Design Magazines in the World! But let’s highlight a few of this Group’s Top Projects. And let us start with one of the Most Minimalists of the Group. Recently, Hotel brand Yotel has opened a flagship branch in New York’s Times Square, where visitors check in at computerised kiosks while their luggage is stored or retrieved by a giant robotic arm. Rockwell Group designed this Top and Modern Hotel and the end result is less Luxurious then some of Rockwell’s project, but equally stunning!
Another recent Rockwell Project within the Hotel Industry was the Moxy Chelsea! This hotel’s restaurant, lounge, and rooftop have been conceived as places of discovery, surprise, and rejuvenation by a specialized Contract Team of the Rockwell Group. Tucked into the bustle of Manhattan’s historic Flower District, guests encounter a botanically inspired design and crafted romance seen through a thoroughly modern lens. A stunning example of an Elegant and Simple Hotel Design.
Also within the Contract/ Commercial projects, the Rockwell Group also dedicates themselves to the creation of Stunning Restaurants. One of its recent projects in this area was the Wayan Restaurant, an Asian Themed Restaurant in Soho, New York. The group’s team gave this restaurant a full makeover and the end result is incredible and has some luxurious details, like some authentic carved wood pieces from Indonesia.
One of Rockwell’s Group most ambitious projects in New York in recent history isn’t quite finished yet, but when it will be done it will be just as incredible as some of the past glorious projects of this Group. Opening on April 5 of 2019, The Shed will be New York’s first arts center dedicated to commissioning, producing, and presenting all types of performing arts, visual arts, and popular culture. The Shed’s Bloomberg Building— an innovative 200,000-square-foot structure designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Lead Architect and Rockwell Group, Collaborating Architect, is designed to physically transform to support artists’ most ambitious ideas. This building will become one of the Top Landmarks of New York for sure!
