TEAM

Nathan Charrissesin - Founder

Designer Nathan Charrissesin combines his talent, experience, and education to tap into emerging trends to create environments that are inventive, immersive, and successful.

 

Leaning on nearly 30 years of practical experience, Nate has a proven track record of leading teams to help make his clients’ visions come true in spaces as diverse as retail and hospitality to restaurants and grocery stores. 

 

From initial strategic positioning and conceptualizing to visual communication and product merchandising, Nate is intimately involved with all aspects of a project. His attention to detail, ability to listen to clients’ dreams and visions, and singular method of approach has helped him acquire a deep understanding of experiential consumer environments and consumer behavior psychology to deliver a one-of-a-kind experience for not only his clients but also his clients’ customers.

 

Current ongoing projects include: 

 

  • Creation of a brand new Food Hall concept specialized in Latin American cuisine

A native of Colombia, Nate has had a successful run as the lead creative on dozens of award-winning projects in the United States and as lead architect on dozens more in Colombia. As well as being bilingual and at ease in both Colombia and the U.S., Nate fuses the elements of his mainly architectural-based training in Colombia with his mainly design-based training in the U.S. to deliver what his clients are looking for.
