by | 06 May 2021 | Design

Architectural interior designer Robbyn Carter has announced the launch of Studio Carter, which is headquartered in LA with support locations in Amsterdam and Singapore.

Studio Carter, the brainchild of acclaimed designer Robbyn Carter, is focusing on elevating sustainable luxury through design.

Narrative-driven, nature-inspired design

The newly launched Studio Carter specialises in boutique and lifestyle experiences within the hospitality market. This artistically driven firm boasts an international design team of over 20 creatives based in California, Amsterdam and Singapore.

The team is made up of esteemed designers who have proven successful at creating narrative-driven spaces, each with a shared philosophy that’s inspired by and pays respect to nature. Together, this group promises to provide an articulated perspective on hospitality, ingenuity and wellbeing for every project.

“Studio Carter is committed to craft and quality with each of our projects, elevating environmental awareness through materiality and our practices, and making a positive impact through holistic and timeless design,” said Studio Carter founder Robbyn Carter. “Through the collective innovation of our design team, local craftsmen and artists, we bring stories and bespoke objects to life in a poetic visual vocabulary and sculptural forms.”

Studio Carter’s global reach

Studio Carter aims to collaborate with clients, owners and operators to ‘deliver tangible experiences that reflect a perceptive response to brand and location’. Its work is influenced by nature, form, culture and the client’s vision.

Carter has returned to her home state, California, after spending over 12 years at design firms in Europe and Singapore. Overall, the designer’s interior architecture career spans almost two decades. In this time, she has worked with renowned developers, collaborated with architects, and led the design of high-end hospitality projects across the world, including Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi.

The studio already has a number of projects slated for completion in 2022 and 2023. These include Mondrian Gold Coast, Mondrian Singapore, Fairmont Port Douglas, Australia’s first Fairmont hotel and other resort projects in Shanghai, Sanya and Nanjing.

“This past year has challenged us as individuals and as an industry,” said Carter. “Sustainability is our reality, and we look forward to expanding our global reach with the launch of our new Los Angeles studio.”
