Architect: Dean/Wolf Architects

Dean/Wolf architects. Awesome. This partnership is serious about material, craftsmanship, detail, detail, detail, and a generous dose of light and transparency.

They first grabbed my interest with their Inverted Townhouse, where they really showed some amazing use of sensual materials, and a wicked way of arranging these sort of hanging double height spaces.

Salivating, I quickly went back for more and found their Double Weave Loft, Soho Skyline Loft, Ethan Cohen Fine Arts building, and their proposal for the Queens Hospital EMS. Being a man who loves solid, textured, real materials, I quickly fell in love with their work. They have an awesome capacity for layering the materials and making subtle plane shifts that create these incredibly poetic spaces. All in all, they are 'doing it'.
