Ricca Newmark Design is a new and unique hospitality design firm that resulted from the merger of Thomas Ricca Associates and Newmark Diercks Design in August of 2001, offering, for the first time, a single professional source for the design of both back-of-house and front-of-house areas of projects. Newmark Diercks Design, in its 10 years before the merger, attained a status as one of the 20 "Interior Design Giants" of Hospitality Design Magazine and became known for being creative and talented designers with the most consistently thorough and complete documentation process in the business. Newmark Diercks Design is an extraordinary blend of creative talent, whose position is unique, by coordinating Architecture and Interior Design to create successful Hospitality and Restaurant spaces that are efficient, classic and enduring.
Since 1973, Thomas Ricca Associates has been one of the leading foodservice and laundry consulting/design firms in the world, with projects completed on all 7 continents, all 50 states, and in all major market types. Its 23 national awards are unsurpassed in the industry and are testimony to its focus on designing labor-efficient and revenue-maximizing hospitality facilities. Thomas Ricca Associates has always established the standard for design innovation in foodservice as well as,the project process itself.
In 1995, The Ricca Planning Studio was formed to provide comprehensive masterplanning, market research, and management advisory services to the hospitality industry and has grown into one of the leading consulting firms in the country. In 2001, it spun off into independent ownership, and continued its remarkable growth, changing its name to Envision Strategies in 2003. Envision Strategies continues to be closely allied with Ricca Newmark Design. While each of the service formats, specifically interior design, foodservice design, laundry design and management advisory services, can be commissioned as a separate service, the maximum benefits of the firm are achieved in our "Holistic" approach.
Ricca Newmark Design, with Envision Strategies, views itself as "general practitioners" in all markets of hospitality design and consulting. The firms have achieved significant prominence in the areas of hotel, resort, and higher education projects. Leading the staff of over 50 design professionals is a management team that has achieved a level of national prominence that is unequalled in the industry. Most trade publications, industry conventions, and educational conferences include an article or presentation by one of the firm's principals or about one of the firm's successful projects. Foremost to this collaboration and commitment to design excellence is our desire to listen, be responsive to a client's needs, and implement design solutions that maximize the return on an investment and the client's expectations. Ricca Newmark Design is headquartered in Denver, Colorado, and has principal-managed offices in Washington D.C., New York and California.
