Chris EvansChris Evans 
Senior Associate
Rottet Studio

Chris Evans cut his teeth from an early age in his family’s furniture shop, initiating his study of the design world by shaping objects with his hands. The manual process link between working with his hands and his brain has informed his design throughout his young career, exemplified by his unparalleled expertise in space planning, architectural finishes and detailing, and furniture specifications. Chris's talents also include the development of design details for custom furniture and millwork pieces, ranging from traditional carved wood and tooled leather details to very contemporary stone and glass details. This design approach, born of function and imbued with beauty, has resulted in buildable and memorable projects for his clients. An approach combining his background with extensive historic research has allowed him to create buildings, spaces and furniture that invoke authentic emotional responses from clients and guests.
