Claremont Residential Hall by Co Architects with KPFF Engineers
Farshid Assassi

“What sets Buro Happold apart is their ability to engage in the architectural discussion— regardless of the degree of engineering difficulty. Their involvement often results in a growth of the architectural ambitions, rather than the more typical dumbing down. In other words, they do more than simply solve the problem. They help better define it.”

Eckersley “O’Callaghan Structural Design, who do all of the structural and glass engineering for our Apple work, are in a league of their own. Very young, very bright, and very cutting-edge. Good collaborative people.”

“Peter Yu of Yu Strandberg combines a creative vision for problem solving and a quick mind for engineering solutions when he works with us to achieve the artistic goals of our custom homes. In the Tea Houses, he elegantly detailed a series of freestanding cast- in-place concrete structural cores to support steel channel rim joints, which form cantilevered roof and floor platforms. The engineering design reflects the guiding design principles to minimize impact on the landscape and provide a quiet simplicity for these structures, which are designed for intimate gatherings and creative thinking.”
