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.

Hub Flagstaff

 
 

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.

Guggenheim Museum

 
 

Guggenheim Museum

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation sought a design for a waterfront Guggenheim Museum with a year-round focus on culture and entertainment that serves as a gathering place for residents and visitors.

The foundation of our design begins by creating an integrated pedestrian connection between South Harbor and Tahtitornin Park. This landscaped surface extends the natural beauty of the park fabric across Etelaranta Street and down to the waterfront. The journey from hillside to harbor front actually penetrates the structure, blurring the boundaries between the public space of the city and the private space of the museum.

Turning the traditional layout of a museum inside out, the Guggenheim Helsinki provides visitors with an experience that alternates between interior and exterior spaces. The interior of the main exhibition hall can be viewed from the pathway outside as one circulates around the large architectonic form. From there, the design comes alive and unfurls into several natural gathering spaces where museum visitors can enjoy vistas where the city meets the water.

Bodo Kommune

Building on existing cultural and commercial assets in the city center, the award-winning Bodo Culture House is strategically designed to enhance program functions, activate adjacent streets and the harbor front, and create visually dynamic volumes from a variety of vantage points. The design results in an iconic theater comprised of interlocking forms.

The arced layers of translucent skin reveal the life of the building between its structural ribs, while light passing through its varying layers of opacity creates a sculptural beacon across the water.

The primary entrance allows patrons to enter between layers of glass curtain wall that arc like a boat’s hull. To access the theater halls, patrons ascend the grand stair that leads to the third floor interior terraces. The main theater’s seats cascade downward, showcasing the performance stage. The more experimental small theater is strategically placed to allow its activity to be viewed from within the grand processional.

Campus Colors


Design solutions for this mixed-use building, located in the geographic center of this active suburban “main street”, involved extensive renovations to transform a former Borders bookstore into an attractive, multi-tenant building. The highly transparent design solution creates a dynamic, flexible 130’ facade unifying the expansive streetscape.

Originally constructed in the 1920’s as four separate one- and two-story buildings, our designers focused on recapturing that scale by transforming the facade. The composition is organized around the existing divisions between buildings and is emphasized by a center canopy-covered entrance. The entrance is flanked by a punched opening volume and a curtain wall of regular rhythms.

Overall, the composition is grounded by its masonry mass, but creates movement through its snaking two-story stone banding. The simple material palette, textures, and detailing are subdued in order to provide the proper framework to effectively showcase each retailer.
