Favorite Duda|Paine project?
Being very interested in spaces dedicated to healing and physical and mental wellness, my favorite Duda|Paine project is the Duke University Student Wellness Center. The material palette, natural light, and project siting create a space of rest and tranquility.
Why did you choose Duda|Paine?
I chose Duda|Paine for their unique approach to design, their commitment to the art of model making as an important part of the design process, and the value they place in investing in their employees.
