David Rockwell

Rockwell Group creates extraordinary experiences and built environments across the globe.

Founded in 1984 by David Rockwell, FAIA, the firm focuses on architecture and design that emphasizes innovation and thought leadership in environments including restaurants, hotels, cultural institutions, and theater. Inspired by live performance, Rockwell Group creates a unique narrative for each project.

David Rockwell’s decades of experience in restaurant and hotel design is directly translatable to emerging trends in the workplace. Above all, Rockwell knows how to make the people who inhabit his spaces feel comfortable and in control—the protagonists in dramas of their own making—and it’s this same sense of hospitality and empowerment that office workers, liberated from their desks by wireless technology, are seeking.
