Lauren Rottet, FAIA, FIIDA, and Rottet Studio are known for spaces, whether for work or home, that transcend their formal use and become places where people ponder, experience, and are inspired. These environments, though immediately beautiful to the eye, are not meant for momentary impact. Instead, they are designed to reveal themselves over time. Just off the press, Authentic Design: Lauren Rottet and Rottet Studio was written by Lauren Rottet, with a foreward by former architecture critic for The New Yorker, Paul Goldberger.

The book chronicles an award-winning portfolio of homes and hotels to all manner of offices, work spaces, and showrooms all over the world. Some of the chapter titles illustrate the concept of exquisite simplicity, a signature of Rottet Studio’s design, such as: Transparency, Reflectivity and Illusion, and Tranquil Illumination. Lauren will discuss her design influences, from elegant modernism to Beaux-Arts classicism, as well as clients and projects contained in Authentic Design. She will also present her new Decca Contract product line, Rottet Home.

Following Lauren’s presentation and book signing, we will tour Rottet Studio’s recent renovation of the Paul Hastings Conference Center on Floors 24 and 25. Rottet Studio was the original architect for this Paul Hastings office (2002) and although the design stood the test of time, modernization was required. The objective was simple: challenge the norms, collaborate, communicate, innovate. Paul Hasting wanted to restack and consolidate their existing space, while taking advantage of modern technology to position themselves for the future.

Paul Hastings desired a warmer, less formal aesthetic with clear sight lines, so warm wood was incorporated into ceiling recesses and offices received glass fronts, creating a comfortable office environment that appears more home than office. All new lighting was integrated to current standards, to provide a higher level of energy efficiency. To promote collaboration and communication, lounge areas were incorporated on the corner of each floor, and conference rooms serve as both meeting rooms and work environments.
