Gonzalo Bustamante Joins Rockwell Group

New York-based Rockwell Group has appointed Gonzalo Bustamante as studio leader. Bustamante, who previously worked at Rockwell Group from 1996 to 2003, will oversee a wide range of hospitality projects.

Bustamante brings with him more than 20 years of hospitality experience to Rockwell Group. During his initial tenure at the firm, Bustamante was a lead designer on the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles; the expansion of the Mohegan Sun Casino; the renovation of Emeril's New Orleans; and Sushi Samba in Chicago. He later joined Jeffrey Beers International as a team leader designing projects for clients such as London Clubs International, Planet Hollywood, and Kerzner International.

"Gonzalo is a very talented designer and we're thrilled he's returning to our firm as a studio leader," says David Rockwell, founder and president of Rockwell Group. "We're really looking forward to Gonzalo bringing his unique, creative vision and his business management expertise to our firm."

In 2005, Bustamante co-founded Seed Design Studio with Vincent Celano in New York. For almost a decade, their firm designed spaces such as LIV Nightclub on Miami Beach; a pool bar at Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando; Mercadito restaurants in Chicago and Miami; China Poblano at The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas; and Social House at CityCenter Las Vegas.

"I am extremely excited to be part of Rockwell Group again," says Bustamante. "The extraordinary creativity is palpable throughout the office, where exceptionally talented studios forge unique and imaginative new designs day in and day out. I am truly honored and look forward to continuing on that tradition and helping shape the future."
