PROJECT ON HOLD

Location witheld at client request.

This mixed-use building occupies a strategically important site in one of Europe's most important cities. Due to site constraints and program mandates, the design emphasizes characteristics that work to establish the project as an architectural icon for the area. However, the design at ground level is perhaps most important. With simple key moves, the project links to neighboring site and develops a modern dialogue with the historic language of the listed building - and in doing so solves crucial circulation issues that have been detrimental to the site's success as a pedestrian destination.
