BOLT DESIGN GROUP, LLC, Brooklyn, NY, US, Founder / Lead Designer

Bolt Design is a high-end multidisciplinary design firm, specializing in large-scale hospitality, commercial, and event spaces.

Bolt Design was founded on the idea that quality design has the capability of great influence. Whether cultural, societal, familial, or the haptic sensation of an unsuspecting detail, design can encompass a transformative power. At Bolt Design, we strive to harness that power at all scales of design and reveal it through the unfolding of the narrative journey of each individual space. Through the careful marriage of classic proportions and innovative design techniques, we bring to life a new design aesthetic that is both familiar and unorthodox.

At Bolt Design, we understand that architecture is an evolving entity which must embrace its changing surroundings while maintaining its connection with its functional responsibilities. A well designed space is one that encapsulates its functional goals while pushing the ideas of what a built structure/enclosure can be, thus providing enriched and novel experiences.

Constantly, technology provides the platform to rethink the capabilities of design through new techniques and fabrication processes. With this technology expanding at an exponential rate, architectural design has been reenergized in its ability to test, execute, and create new means and methods of design realization.
