ROSSETTI is an architectural design and planning firm headquartered in Detroit, Michigan[1] The firm is involved in the design of professional sports stadiums, arenas, entertainment venues, institutions and commercial buildings. ROSSETTI is a lead believer of the concept of sports anchored developments and master planning, where stadiums are designed and planned to carefully integrate into an urban environment.

History[edit]

ROSSETTI is a privately owned architectural firm that was founded in 1969, by Gino Rossetti. In 1999, leadership passed onto Matt Rossetti.

The firms early projects centered on health care facilities, corporate headquarters, interiors, retail and master planning. The firm began approaching the sports and entertainment industry after ROSSETTI was contracted in 1984 to design the The Palace of Auburn Hills. The project, which broke ground in 1986, and opening in 1988, marked the firms earliest major success in sports entertainment. In 2003, ROSSETTI shifted towards specifically specializing in sports and entertainment venues.

Today, ROSSETTI works on a wide variety of projects, with a focus on arenas and the entertainment industry.

Innovations[edit]

The Palace

  • The firm engineered and incorporated the concept of hospitality suites (suites placed lower within the bowl) for the Palace as opposed to the typically known "Sky Boxes." "Sky Box" suites were commonly located along the upper concourse of arenas. Placed within the lower seating bowels, the hospitality suites at the Palace were some of the first of their kind.
