Among the practice’s major recent works are the renewed Neues Museum in Berlin; the Anchorage Museum of History and Art, Alaska; the City of Justice in Barcelona; the Des Moines Public Library in Iowa; Ninetree Village, a residential district in Hangzhou, China; the new Museum Folkwang in Essen, Germany; the Kaufhaus Tyrol department store in Innsbruck and the Peek & Cloppenburg flagship store in Vienna; a laboratory building on the Novartis campus in Basel; and in 2011, the Turner Contemporary gallery in Margate and The Hepworth Wakefield, both in the United Kingdom. The practice also has a strong interest in the design and function of interior spaces, designing shop interiors for Issey Miyake, Joseph, Dolce & Gabbana, and Valentino, as well as a range of furniture, lighting, and tableware. Ongoing current projects include a new gallery for the Colección Jumex in Mexico City; the luxury five star Hotel Café Royal on London’s Regent Street; the Perm Opera and Ballet Theatre in Russia; the Marrakech Gallery in Morocco; Elizabeth House, a major new office and residential development near Waterloo in London; the De Vere Gardens residential development in Kensington in London; the Palace of Justice in Salerno, Italy; the James Simon Gallery, a new entrance building to Berlin’s Museum Island; a new wing for the Saint Louis Art Museum in the United States; the Ansaldo City of Cultures in Milan; a new MBA building for the HEC Paris School of Management, France; and a new building for the Kunsthaus Zurich in Switzerland. Our work is driven by a consistent approach which leads to the creation of individual buildings that are intimately connected to both context and function. The approach to design respects each client and commission as unique, while giving equal consideration to every detail, whatever the size or purpose of the project.
