(HOLLYWOOD, Fla.) – The architecture and interior design firm of O’Donnell Dannwolf + Partners announced that it has been selected by Southeast Construction magazine as one of the top design firms in its region.
“It is an honor to be included on this list and to have our work recognized by our peers,” said Ed O’Donnell, managing partner for the firm.
The Top Design ranking is based upon company-provided information indicating each firm’s 2006 billings figures for projects performed in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina. This is the company’s first year on the list.
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.
