National Concert Hall

 
 

National Concert Hall

The placement of the theatre on top of a hill provides the ideal location for embracing the somewhat familiar sloped terrain in the architecture. Speaking its own language, its jagged shapes are easily recognizable from any vantage point within the city.

The transparent facade allows for the life inside to be visible from the outside. Clad in Corten steel, the two theatre structures embrace the beautiful and varied rust color. They provide both a backdrop for the public spaces and glow on the hill like a piece of amber where the fossils cast inside are alive and changing with every evening’s performance.

Goose Island

 
 

Goose Island

Located on the North Branch of Chicago's Goose Island, the concept design for this 280,000 sf building involves the conversion of a former furniture factory into a destination office experience.

Taking inspiration from the building's original industrial style, the red brick facade is beautifully contrasted against the stunning glass atrium that connects the two structures, the steel floor-to-ceiling window frames, and the enclosed glass balconies.

At the ground level, the design incorporates a cafe concept with enormous garage-style windows that allow the indoor dining space to be extended outside.

Encouraging collaboration and relaxation, the interior gallery also consists of a variety of comfortable seating options, arranged in groups as well as single pods. All of these elements are continued into the exterior gallery, which includes additional seating and a refurbished train car.

Finally, an additional amenity space is located on the massive green roof, which includes a deck with various seating arrangements, boasting sweeping views of the Chicago skyline.

Located on the North Branch of Chicago's Goose Island, the concept design for this 280,000 sf building involves the conversion of what was once a furniture factory into a creative office space.

At the ground level, the design incorporates a cafe concept with enormous garage-style windows that allow the indoor dining space to be extended outside.

As one enters the interior gallery, which is enclosed by the glass atrium, they are guided by the refurbished train tracks that once ran through the island. Flooded with natural light, the gallery brings the outdoors inside with a massive green wall that nearly extends the length of the building. All of these elements are continued into the exterior gallery, which includes additional seating and a refurbished train car.

MA Design Studio

 
 

MA Design Studio

In early 2018, Myefski Architects made a momentous move from the Chandler's Building in downtown Evanston to the historic Wrigley Building in downtown Chicago. Situated between the Magnificent Mile and the Chicago Riverwalk, the new studio boasts spectacular views and plenty of natural sunlight.

When building out the new office, the goal was to create a modern workspace that promotes creativity and teamwork. The primary color and material palette feature classic neutrals with Quartz and French oak accents, providing a clean contrast to the cityscape backdrop.

The open studio was created out of what was originally the Allstate Insurance office suite, which also happened to be one the building's first tenants. The columns and ceilings were left exposed to reveal the original concrete structure. These elements are intermixed with new mechanicals, which celebrates their function and visibility.

A new condominium development unlike any other, Icehouse offers residents a truly eclectic living experience. Built in the 1920’s, the structure first served as an ice production facility, before being used as a warehouse and then a printing facility.

Boasting design elements which can only be described as “industrial chic,” this residential development transforms utilitarian mechanisms from 20th century ice manufacturing into hip design features.

Standing less than 400 feet away from public transportation, the commuter-friendly, two-story building houses units that feature distinctive layouts in one-, two-, or three-bedroom options.

Hub Flagstaff

Taking precise care to not hinder the breathtaking mountain backdrop, the building is designed to be no more than five-stories tall. By taking special consideration of the community’s wants and needs, the design for The Hub underwent some changes from the Concept Review stage to the Site Plan Review stage: the original design was lowered by nine feet, the façade has been broken up by pushing back sections and creating a landscaped courtyard, and more stone and metal panels have been integrated into the façade design, with less emphasis on glass elements.

Exceptional amenities and plenty of areas for quiet study or group interaction means Hub Flagstaff has everything a student could need. The mezzanine level deck is generously equipped with a pool, cabanas, club room, fitness area, sports court, and seating areas.

6,999 sf of retail, restaurant, and office space is included in the development. A parking garage hidden at the core of the structure provides ample vehicle and bike storage. This programming feature eliminates street parking and embraces a focus on the area’s natural scenery.

Royal Danish Theatre

 
 

Royal Danish Theatre

Located in the heart of a city surrounded by sea, the Royal Danish Theatre sought to combine the elements of land and water that make Copenhagen unique. Pulling inspiration from the maritime setting, the multi-functioned building impressionistically extends along the pier, floating amongst ships and sailboats like a vessel at berth.

The Royal Danish Theatre was designed to bring its inhabitants to life, similar to the theater performances that take place within its walls. The façade gently curves along the water, filtering sunlight while also providing deliberate openings that give inhabitants a glimpse of the beautiful views outside. More than just an enclosure for multiple stages, the building is a working theatrical machine that puts on its own performance every day and night.

The crown of the Royal Danish Theatre is an expansive wooden framework that encapsulates and bears the weight of the main stage and foyer. Boasting uninterrupted views of the surrounding landscape, this grand space becomes the patron’s proscenium – placing inhabitants in the spotlight of social attention. Penetrating through the roof, the circular crown structure shelters the fly tower while glowing from within like a lantern reflecting across the harbor.

Christian Dior

This Christian Dior boutique is strategically located at the epicenter of Chicago’s high fashion shopping district. A fanciful star affixed on the top of the building—a symbol of good luck for Monsieur Dior—distinguishes the boutique as a standout among neighboring luxury retailers.

At street level customers are drawn to the lustrous façade; an ethereal effect of the patterned frit/ceramic glazing, expansive display windows, and articulated lightboxes. Highly stylized, the cannage-patterned frit/ceramic glazing blurs away the joints between glass panels and produces a strong graphic statement. The frit glass is a stunning complement to the exposed steel canopy elements of the original Walton Gardens structure.

On the first floor, millinery, handbags, and accessories are individually showcased on display niches supported by ultra-slender shelves made of brushed stainless steel. Alluring display cases, crafted from custom millwork and crystal-clear glass, highlight timepieces and jewellery collections.

On the second floor, ready-to-wear collections and a shoe salon are beautifully contrasted against the glowing white backdrop of the double-height façade. This level is appointed with plush sofas and a wrought-iron sculpture.

Myefski Architects served as Executive Architect working in collaboration with the Christian Dior Architecture Department.

Riga Exposition Centre

 
 

Riga Exposition Centre

In an effort to provide sensational experiences for visitors, the Exhibition Centre sought to expand their facilities to include an auditorium, additional conference rooms, offices, and an additional exhibition space. The resulting design is prescribed to become an internationally recognizable landmark befitting the city of Riga’s 800 years of history blending the medieval with the modern.

Entering Riga by water, the landscape of the city reflects across the Daugava River with iconic buildings towering skyward similar to the tall trees in the vast Latvian forests. During the design process, we took inspiration from this initial impression, establishing a thriving public plaza and transcending the exposition center to rise above Kipsala Island.

When designing the Riga Exposition Centre, the goal was to create a multi-functional landmark on Kipsala Island that would replace the outdated design and functionality of the existing development.
