Architecture is an opportunity to reassess simple pleasures - light, air, view, color and natural beauty. Our building designs envision relaxed environments supportive of the user's experience. By manipulating forms, materials, scale, light and ornament, we make the familiar seem extraordinary.
Koning Eizenberg Architecture is known for its imaginative, site-specific and people-oriented approach to the design of buildings and places of everyday living. The firm's fresh, contemporary aesthetic - informed by a long-standing commitment to sustainable architecture - brings design excellence without pretension to a wide range of building types, from housing to community centers, schools to hotels, recreational facilities to retail, work places to museums. The breadth of this experience translates into an ability to generate creative solutions for unique situations with budgets that conventionally sustain only generic solutions.
The firm is often selected to work on projects that require creative thinking to tackle complex issues of programming and site use, and has achieved international recognition for its ground-breaking working housing and community-based projects. This reputation has been confirmed through numerous design awards, including 25 national, state and local AIA awards, for residential, commercial and institutional work, as well as in winning designs for national competitions. Remarkably diverse in appeal, Koning Eizenberg projects have been widely published in professional journals, books and general interest periodicals, both in the United States and abroad. The influence of the firm's approach to design can also be measured by numerous invited speaking engagements and teaching appointments at universities around the world.
