I have always seen Hospitality Design as a form of commercial art fused with architecture. We see ourselves as an Art Studio.
From my perspective hospitality design is never about personal taste or what is cool or stylish today.  For us it is always about how our team can deliver a stimulating, original and engaging hotel experiences for our target audience that in turn drives revenue for our clients. Fortunately our clients understand that art and style are key components for success, and they both support and collaborate with us throughout the design process. Much like an artist and their patron, they give us the creative license to deliver our vision. Of course it helps to have 30 years of successful projects under our belt.  Trust is earned.  As a team, we all understand the obligation of this trust and that we are only as good as our next project. Raising the bar is just expected. Our innovative team is always excited for the next challenge to stretch their imagination but it also takes a lot of grit and determination to deliver.

For Caruso Design Group to be recognized as a Top ID firm by such a prominent organization within our industry is extremely humbling.  I remember being a member of the Sunshine Chapter early in my hospitality design career and looking at the leading firms in awe, wondering what it would be like to make an impact in hospitality design.  Fast forward almost 20 years.  The creation of the Pittsburgh Regional Group took the awareness of hospitality design as a specialty to the next level in our region.  Many A&D firms were not focused on this market segment.  With NEWH, our region’s hospitality-focused designers and manufacturers representatives now have a new network filled with opportunities to serve each other and to serve our students in the form of scholarships and educational programming.   Congratulations to the other winners, it was an honor and a privilege to receive the Top ID award with you.  I hope to see hospitality projects and associated career paths continue to flourish in Pittsburgh.

Being named as a Top ID firm in Chicago is certainly a great honor, especially for our bootstrapped but experienced team of designers, architects, tinkerers, and explorers. As a firm, the most important thing is that our work helps to propel the businesses of our clients and that we are always proud of the projects coming out of our studio, big and small. Being recognized for that work by NEWH is truly awesome, especially in a city full of talented and creative studios.
