We're excited to announce that TsAO & McKOWN Architects just received the 2009 Cooper-Hewitt National Design Award for Interior Design and they've also just launched a handsome new website showcasing their stunning work. We have long admired this dynamic design duo and find their work truly inspiring. Stylish, understated, well conceived and well executed, there's not a project they've done that we're not absolutely wild about. Founded back in 1985, this award-winning firm has demonstrated they not only have what it takes to create incredible architecture time after time but remarkable interiors as well.
Their work includes: architecture and interiors for Andre Balazs’ 47 story William Beaver House in NY, River Lofts condominiums in NY and Suntec City, a six-million square foot public/private development in Singapore; architecture and urban master plans for large-scale projects in Budapest, Berlin, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and cities in China; interiors for cultural and fashion leaders Ian Schrager, Josie Natori, Joyce Ma, Peter Morton and Geoffrey Beene; exhibition design for Los Angeles’ Museum of Contemporary Art, McGill University’s McCord Museum and New York’s Jewish Museum; and product and furniture design for Nan Swid Designs, Donghia, The Robin Hood Foundation, World Studio and Japanese cosmetics master Shu Uemura.

Fortunate for us, we can now see a lot of these projects on their newly re-launched website, which is beautiful to look at and a breeze to navigate. Congratulations again to TsAO & McKOWN for this most recent award and all of the other accolades you've received over the years. Well-deserved!
