Droese Raney x Design
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, individualized 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. Available for pre-order wherever books are sold.
“A spirited presentation of the colorful, spirited work of Dallas architecture firm Droese Raney dips—not only into the projects—but into the energetic, ebulliant ethos of the designers.”
