Work has begun on our new office project in Paris, and quite honestly, we’re excited. The space was designed in collaboration with Atelier 208 in Paris, and once complete, will be the home for the local team of an international technology company. This is will be Pliskin Architecture’s first built project outside of the US, and the Paris construction team is scheduled to complete the space by the end of May 2017.
Demolition has begun in the space, and old infrastructure is being pulled out of hte access floors across the space to make room for new technology that will cover the space.
The future site of the reception area is being cleared to make room for a translucent wall that will both feature the latest news regarding the company and its clients, as well as hint at the work being conducted immediately behind it.

The bearded craftsmen of Gustav Mergins Woodworking were onsite, tinkering with the moving parts of over-sized pivot doors for an apartment renovation currently under construction. Covered in sawdust and equipped with the latest, um, beards, Gustav and crew were working on their pieces for a two-apartment combination project in Midtown Manhattan.
Construction has started on the offices we designed outside of the Raleigh Durham Airport (RDU) in North Carolina. The 14,000sf office for an international technology company is scheduled for completion by the end of July, and will feature a combination of colorful accents and reclaimed industrial artifacts. The work areas will have natural wood work surfaces, and the entire office will have a range of lounge, meeting, and communal spaces to accommodate many different types of interaction between employees.
The office, designed by Pliskin Architecture with the help of Tina Barnard Designs in Morrisville, will be fully operational this summer and will feature furniture fabricated locally by Bull City Designs in Durham.
With the help of TR Fox Contracting, construction has started on the gut-renovation and combination of two apartments in Midtown. We have left a tiny GoPro behind to chronicle tearing it down, and the video above provides a first peak behind the scenes. Stay tuned for more updates, both here and on twitter.
