Studio

Lerose is a design studio based in East London, specialising in hospitality spaces - restaurants, bars and hotels.

We say: A hospitality space is always an emotional project, one can easily be seduced into expensive decisions or become blinded by trends.

"Fifteen years' experience has taught us that your idea is usually the best idea for you."

It's our job to support you, guide you through the process of design, using our skills to help bring your plans to life.
