The work of the firm is instantly recognizable and internationally respected.

Our practice has extensive experience across a broad range of building types and sizes: cultural facilities, government offices, libraries and educational buildings, media production facilities, industrial research complexes, corporate headquarters, hotels and private residences.
We aspire to thoughtful, elegant contemporary architecture that exceeds our clients’ expectations for beauty and form, and fulfills complex programmatic and operational needs.
