The office was set up with the aim to build architecturally significant projects, creating iconic buildings in the public realm. The designs are intended to be a rigorous expression of dramatic architectural design, whilst also being sensitive to their context and users. The projects combine the use of technological innovation with poetic and sculptural forms to create a strong sense of “place”. Mark Dziewulski is personally involved with each project from start to completion, so that the work reflects an individual and distinctive design sensibility. Each new commission receives a fresh approach based on its contextual and programmatic influences. The office is committed to environmentally sensitive construction and has created several technologically innovative buildings.
The office has built several public projects, including a national war memorial in Poland and a United Nations trade headquarters in China. They have also created designs for a variety of cultural and public buildings, including several museums. Their design for the National Gallery, in Trafalgar Square, was published by the Royal Institute of British Architects and was widely praised. The office is currently working on a residential apartment building in London, several houses and commercial projects, and a conceptual design for a performing arts centre. They recently completed a design for a new museum of aviation in Cracow, Poland.
The work has been praised as being both sensitive to its context as well as providing iconic design, making the buildings important landmarks within their communities. Their goal is to continually evolve and grow as a design firm, expanding the range of their portfolio while striving to create innovative and exciting architecture.
