Dieguez Fridman believes that architecture is the bridge that connects the realm of ideas and creativity and the world of construction. Each project offers an opportunity to articulate global concerns for the quality of cities and living spaces, with the local knowledge of craftsmen and construction industries.
The design process is triggered by a creative re-examination of program, architectural typologies, planning codes and the building’s insertion in the landscape or city fabric. The resulting concept is refined through a careful and innovative use of materials and a particular interest in construction details.
Building envelopes and materials, structural design and expression, user’s movement through architecture and the dynamic perception of space, are part of the firm’s continuous explorations. The idea of contrast defines the firm’s identity. Projects propose an opposition between the polished and reflecting quality of industrial materials –such as glass and steel- and the rough surfaces of exposed concrete and wood, in search of a new synthesis.
Dieguez Fridman’s office is an open space where all collaborators take part in discussions of on-going projects and competitions. Fresh opinions and unconventional solutions are encouraged as a means of reaching the firm’s goal: to produce buildings that can influence people’s life quality and contribute in a positive way to its surroundings.
Beyer Blinder Belle was founded in 1968, in the wake of the urban renewal movement in the United States, when the social fabric of cities, communities, and buildings was compromised by the prevailing attitudes about planning and architecture. We pioneered and defined a different approach to the design of the built environment that focused on architecture empowering people — their interaction with each other on streets and in neighborhoods, their pleasure in moving through the city, and their connections to the surrounding physical fabric.
This mission has guided us for more than four decades and has shaped a broad and award-winning practice — now 185 professionals in New York City and Washington, DC engaged in architecture, planning, and interiors. A persistent exploration of historic, cultural and civic meaning guides our work, while our design is contemporary and reflects the materials and technology of today.Planning, restoration and the design of new buildings are the fundamental underpinnings of our practice. Many of our projects involve the stewardship of historic buildings in sensitive urban sites — the work for which we have become best recognized. Our deep sense of identity and evolving perspectives on design have guided our practice in new construction as well as master planning and urban design. With our clients and friends, we continue the dialogue.
