Herzog & de Meuron Basel Ltd.
4056 Basel, Switzerland
In the USA, Herzog & de Meuron have built up the biggest portfolio outside Switzerland. We recognized the potential that the USA held at an early stage in 1998, with Dominus Winery in Napa Valley. Subsequently we established a studio in New York. A studio in San Francisco followed, in order to stay in close touch with our clients across the country.
In New York and the surrounding area, our portfolio ranges from the conversion of a piano factory into the headquarters of Prada USA, to apartment buildings such as the tower at 56 Leonard Street, to such distinctive cultural centers as the Parrish Art Museum and the conversion of the Park Avenue Armory. From the New York studio, we have completed two projects in Miami. 1111 Lincoln Road has dissolved the boundaries between parking, commerce, housing and public space and has become a creatively used structure for locals as well as for international stars and brands. The PAMM is more than just an arts center and, with free access to its shaded porches, the building has become a much-loved and widely recognized meeting point for all. We are currently working on two new art spaces in the US, the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art and Calder Gardens in Philadelphia.
Our studio in New York ensures strategic partnerships with planners, close contact with our clients, onsite presence throughout the development and execution of projects, and reflects our long-term commitment to the region. Our New York team embodies Herzog & de Meuron’s culture, work ethic, and professionalism. They are well-versed in US planning regulations and construction methodologies and are involved from initial contact with all stakeholders to the handover of a finished project.
