Full Description

Dallas-based architecture firm Droese Raney approaches each project with a generosity of spirit and sense of enthusiasm that encompasses not only client and design but also the physical, spiritual, and emotional well-being of the greater community. The result is a series of buildings and interiors that uses the principles of modern architecture to create comfortable, informal settings; attends to small details and to complex urban contents; highlights the contributions of artists and artisans; and above all tells a story of a specific time and place.
The 16 projects in Droese Raney x Design include retail outlets for Billy Reid, the Conservatory, and Neighborhood Goods, each highlighting a distinct, individualised brand; urban redevelopments such as Good-E and 2800 Main, which transform dilapidated historic structures into lively commercial and entertainment zones; and restaurants including José and Mi Cocina, which bring artisanal traditions to contemporary venues. Especially notable are Forty Five Ten, a four-story department store appointed entirely in Knoll furniture and textiles, and the Warehouse, a 31,000-square-foot space for art exhibition and storage. Interspersed between the projects are five first-person narratives from Droese Raney’s noted clients and collaborators as well as a sixth with the “insider view” from the firm itself.
