Designer launches Studio Carter

Internationally acclaimed architectural interior designer Robbyn Carter (pictured above) has launched Studio Carter’s Los Angeles headquarters. Specializing in boutique and lifestyle experiences within the hospitality market, the artistically driven design studio is comprised of esteemed designers with demonstrated success in choreographing tailor-made, narrative-driven spaces rooted in a shared philosophy inspired by nature and design to respect it.

With a team of 20-plus creatives based in California, Amsterdam and Singapore, Studio Carter is an international force with a harmonized approach to providing a personal, articulated perspective on hospitality, ingenuity and well-being to each of its projects.

“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.”

From conceptualization to design to installation, Studio Carter values strength in collaboration with its clients, owners and operators to deliver tangible experiences that reflect a perceptive response to brand and location. All work begins from an artistic viewpoint influenced by form, nature, culture and client vision, layered with authentic creativity.

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

Carter returns to her home state of California after spending more than 12 years with design firms in Singapore and Europe. Her interior architecture career spans nearly two decades and includes working with renowned international developers, collaborating with architects and fabricators, and leading the design of countless high-end hospitality projects throughout Asia, Europe, North America and the Middle East—most notably, the award-winning Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi.

Studio Carter has a number of projects on the boards slated for completion in 2022 and 2023: Mondrian Gold Coast hotel and residences; Mondrian Singapore; Fairmont Port Douglas, Australia’s first Fairmont hotel; and resort projects in Shanghai, Sanya and Nanjing, China.
