Woods Bagot has announced that Tara Roscoe is joining their New York studio as Workplace Interiors Leader for North America, reconfirming their commitment to the region and fortifying an interiors practice focused on innovation and human-centric design. Building on more than 20 years of project experience for industry-leading clients, Roscoe will draw on her significant capabilities in design, relationship- and team-building, as well as expertise for industries that include corporate, financial, legal, media, entertainment and technology.
“Tara has an ability to get clients excited and confident about their environment and she is undeterred by project scales – very small to exceptionally large and complex,” said Woods Bagot Principal Sarah Kay. “She has a reputation for design excellence and delivery and she is a recognized leader in New York City. We’re delighted that she is joining us to enhance the service we can provide for our clients.”
Roscoe’s award-winning work has been published frequently and is known for its progressive and innovative solutions. Her diverse portfolio includes distinguished clients such as MTV Networks, Bloomberg, The New York Times, Fidelity and Skadden Arps. Most recently, she led the design of the Sony Corporation of America’s 560,000 square foot new headquarters project in New York.
“The design work coming out of Woods Bagot has always been of interest to me and I am thrilled to be joining this immensely talented team,” said Roscoe. “The work and the team are smart, progressive and thoughtful. Woods Bagot’s global studio is an extremely attractive platform for me to integrate into as it provides the ability to pull the best teams together to support the project work and the clients,” Roscoe continued. “The opportunities here are endless and the future looks very bright."
LEED-certified and a member of the International Interior Design Association NY, Roscoe is active in the local design community and committed to advancing design education through teaching and mentorship – having held teaching posts in undergraduate and graduate interior design studios at both Pratt and the University of Manitoba, her alma mater.
She will join her Woods Bagot colleagues in their newly designed studio at 30 Broad Street in New York.
