Kurt Dannwolf spread his architectural influence near and far, with more than 15 years’ experience in high-rise, mixed-use buildings. In that time, he has been responsible for the design of 6 million square feet of space on three continents, totaling almost $1 billion worth on construction. His projects include commercial core and shell, commercial interiors, retail, mixed-use, multifamily dwellings and structures used in the hospitality industry.
Most recently, Dannwolf, a Porsche enthusiast and avid race fan, was a senior associate with Gary E. Handel + Associates of New York, where he was the project architect for what he considers one of his biggest achievements, the Four Seasons Hotel and Tower in Miami.
With the uncertainties in the real estate market, Dannwolf said his biggest achievement this year was the expansion of O’Donnell Dannwolf and Partners Architects from a statewide to a regional firm. In 2005, the firm provided services for projects in Jacksonville, Melbourne, St. Augustine, Fort Lauderdale and Miami. During the course of 2006, the firm expanded to serving clients in Georgia, Washington, D.C. and Florida’s Gulf Coast.
