Residential, Hospitality, Restaurant & Nightclub Design by Callin Fortis
Designer Callin Fortis, along with Landy Lamas, present Big Time Design Studios: a seamless combination of design fashion, music, branding and consulting. Our firm specializes in high concept, high style public space environments.
As designers, we're 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 the space. We strive for design that represents with style, but is also functional, consistent with the brand experience, and connects with the intended audience. The hallmark of Fortis' work 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 interior design for the luxury penthouse at the Portofino South Beach, concept and design of down home backyard barbeque restaurant, Bobbi Sue BBQ, on Clematis Street in West Palm Beach, interior design for Morgan's Hotel Group's Mondrian South Beach, , a dirty disco night club re-imagining and build-out of the Cameo 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 marketing professionals. 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.
