Client Testimonials

“We worked with Lleal on two of our restaurants and on each occasion she was a consumate professional. Her company was able to translate our vision into a practical reality without losing the whimsical elements and warmth needed in a hospitality venture. On presenting her plans to the team she encouraged input on operational issues, utility and function and with these observations she was able to design an exceptionally well thought out space, that felt genuine and authentic to our guests while streamlining our BOH operations. We are extremely pleased with the results of our collaboration with Lleal.”

Tove Nord
Pazza Notte Hospitality Group
Project: Pazza Notte Restaurant, New York

“Lleal has an in-depth understanding of the client’s requirements, a knowledge of the construction process equal to that of the contractor and above all else the knowledge and understanding of the design. Her ability to manage inherent problems faced during construction and deal with them quickly helped minimizing risk and protect the clients position. I found her “no nonsense” approach to be extremely refreshing and I am looking forward to working with Lleal in the future.”

“The Lleal group were excellent in understanding our requirements, organizing plans and obtaining all the needed permits. Laura herself was a vigilant and fierce ally to have throughout the entire process with one eye on the budget and one eye on the clock. We came in under budget, on schedule and thrilled with the results.”

“Lleal creates unique environments displaying high standards of creativity, care and dedication to meet the specific needs of the project, including cost and schedules. In addition to commercial projects, Lleal designed and managed the execution of two of my own residential apartments in New York. Both were done beautifully and meeting all expectations. I highly recommend both her character and abilities.”
