Residential, Hospitality, Restaurant & Nightclub Design

Award winning Big Time Design Studios: a seamless combination of design, environmental art, fashion, music, branding and creativity; Bigtime Design is most known for high concept, high style public space environments.

Designers are drawn to stylish visuals that command attention and leave a lasting impression. Our primary goal is always thoughtful solutions that effectively communicate the essential spirit of space. We strive for design that not only breaths style, but is also functional and consistent with the brand experience. The thread that binds all good design whether a custom piece of millwork, a watch or an exclusive hospiltality environment is a unique expression of each client's message delivered in a practical, scalable format.

With a primary design specialization in hospitality public spaces and residential, our clients span a range of sectors including hotels, restaurants, commercial, nightclubs and more.

The studio's recent projects include conceptual design for a luxury penthouse at the Portofino South Beach, a dynamic, sexy story, a down home backyard barbeque restaurant, Bobbi Sue BBQ, a dirty disco night club design re-imagining and build-out of theCameo Theater (for which BTDs received a night club interior design award nomination and won the "Best Nightclub Design Renovation Award".) and a full scale re-branding of UK nightclub and dance music institution Gatecrasher. Big Time has also completed numerous nightclub, bar and restaurant projects including, Ristorante Angelina, Exit, Frank's, Glow, Hi Tops, Kaboom, Neo, Oo-La-La!, Tequila Roadhouse, Vinyl, America's Backyard and Watusi.

The common thread in all Big Time work is the sociology of good design. "People might ask what kind of social or political dislocations our designs represent," says Fortis. "If you look around any significant design you will find that successful space is interpreted as a socio-political monologue, where each user reacts with whatever emotions they already possess". Big Time Design is a collaborative studio — a team of creative artists, consultants, designers, and nightlife/hospitality experts and tastemakers. The studio utilizes a unique design ethos where oversized objects create the experience, while the human-size details evoke a personal connection and create a lasting memory. "We encourage design to react with you, not to you," says Fortis.
