Experiences require things to do, not just better aesthetics

The design of effective brand experiences, corporate showcases, and retail placemaking require more than visual appeal. For contemporary audiences, they require personal engagement, multisensory immersion, and intrinsic social connectivity. These are exactly the innovations Roto brings from its museum work into the commercial marketspace.

    Interactive Retail Amenities

    The expansion of destination retail and mixed-use development to encompass a full spectrum of lifestyle and entertainment features has created a new and limitless potential for original “placemaking” amenities. Where once a simple in-ground fountain or collection of kiddie rides provided a sufficient departure from shopping and dining, today’s high-performing properties and visionary developers seek distinctive and original experiences that create buzz as they reflect the communities they serve.

    Custom Architectural Features

    The design development and execution of custom, often technology-inspired, architectural features can challenge the most sophisticated builders and is a major impediment to realizing the conceptual ambitions of architects in every sector. Roto provides exemplary design and engineering skills and an immense range of in-house execution capabilities in custom LED lighting, interactive control, audio-visual systems, and large-scale fabrication to support or sole-source the most complex installations.
