“The single best decision I made on this project was hiring Lauren.”


Richard Leibovitch / Managing Partner, Arel Capital

“Rottet’s interiors are the spatial equivalents of Armani suits, guaranteed to flatter their occupants with their tailored lines, understated elegance, and impeccable details.”

Michael Webb / Critic, Los Angeles Architecture

“Casa Medina is truly beautiful in every way, day and night from a little over a year ago when we met in your offices in NY and began to conceptualize it. Very few things are better than one imagines them, and I have to say that this is one of those. I only have words of thank you and appreciation for all you have done.”

Gabriel Gilinski / Owner, Four Seasons Casa Medina

“The apparent beauty and sophistication of Rottet’s finished projects only underscore the merits of their truly progressive conceptual strategies.”

Mayer Rus / Critic, Interior Design Magazine

“The surprise of The Surrey is that it has everything the traditional luxury hotels have. It has the comfort, the elegance and the sophistication, but it adds a lot of things above that. It is current, creative and engaging.”

Brad Wilson / Former COO , Denihan Hospitality Group

“I just toured The James Royal Palm with a significant US real estate and hotel developer… He was blown away by Rottet’s work at The James — he said several times that the Rottet team is extremely talented and was very creative with materials, design and art throughout the hotel.”

Ellen Brown / EVP Acquisitions & Development, Denihan Hospitality Group

“We wanted a space that celebrated creativity, made clients feel at home and best repre­sented the UTA brand. In addition, we also challenged the design team to build a state-of-the-art screening room, one that would push the envelope in both technology and design. The goals were lofty and represented many things we had needed and desired for a long time, but the design team delivered and I think the results speak for themselves.”

Chris Day / Head of Corporate Communications, United Talent Agency

“The Genius of Lauren Rottet’s approach is her seamless fusion of style and substance. In a field where trendy ‘isms’ – postmodernism, modernism, etc. – often masquerade as innovations, Rottet’s work reaffirms the critical idea that suitability always overrules fashion.”

Mayer Rus / Critic, Interior Design Magazine

“I find myself spending more and more time in New York and enjoy my stays at the Surrey.”

Sir Richard Branson / Founder, Virgin Group

“Lauren Rottet and her team creatively transformed a rather pedestrian lobby at the Affinia Shelburne into a vibrant, social space that reflects our brand. Our guests rave about the warm and welcoming sense of arrival, beautiful yet comfortable ‘living room’ and surprisingly whimsical artwork.”

Brad Wilson / Former COO, Denihan Hospitality Group

“Surveying Rottet’s portfolio of completed projects, one is initially struck by the diversity of design solutions and the absence of recurrent flourishes or details that might establish a Rottet signature. No readily apparent ‘house style’ can be discerned — at least not on the level of superficial aesthetics. Instead, Rottet’s designs communicate a tangible sense of the client’s unique corporate culture, its individual spirit and aspirations.”

Mayer Rus / Critic, Interior Design Magazine

“Your [Rottet Studio’s] design has truly changed the very soul of our company. It is a beautiful place to work and it never stops surprising us with the nuances that are so elegant and well thought out.”

Jeremy Zimmer / CEO, United Talent Agency

“After reviewing the package you have put together with the team, we all agree it is sensational looking and will more than resolve the tired look we have in the Senate rooms and the corridors.  Thank you for the time you put into compiling everything and meeting the target date.”

Lance Stumpf / General Manager, The Driskill Hotel

“We instructed the design team to completely overhaul the hotel while respecting its rich history and prominence as a historic Miami Beach landmark. Accordingly, the designers reimagined the hotel as a contemporary version of itself while paying homage to the art deco roots of the property. The team did a fantastic job with the renovation, keeping some signature elements from the Royal Palm’s original design but repositioning them in a fun new way to help energize the property. The design team also carefully curated the hotel’s art collection, sourced by local and international artists which has played a large part in helping connect the hotel with the local community. In the end, the renovation has given the hotel new life while providing a com­fortable, yet energetic design with a nod to the luxurious lifestyle of yesteryear.”

Igor Krnajski / SVP Design & Construction, Denihan Hospitality Group

“I wish you were here today to share in the excitement and to hear all of the wonderful comments from our employees. They are over-the-top happy and impressed with how the space turned out. I am truly blessed to have worked with such a wonderful team.”

Tammy Swarbrick / Regional Administrator, Nixon Peabody

“By the way, the work your team did at Anadarko was nothing short of amazing….beautiful project.”

Robert Fields / President & CEO, Patrinely Group, LLC

“We believe that the design approach has been very appropriate for the property, with a contemporary vision respecting the historic aspect of the spaces. The model room was also well received. I believe we have a very good team for the Driskill project, which played an important factor in the success of this project.”

Joanne Behrens / Former Regional VP Design & Planning, Hyatt

“I wanted to congratulate you and your team on persevering through the myriad of constraints and difficulties to bring a beautiful design to life. Thank you for being such good partners to Four Seasons. The hotel is charming and the design decisions were spot on.”
