Koning Eizenberg Architecture
Santa Monica, CA, 90404
Koning Eizenberg was established in 1981 by Hank Koning FAIA, FRAIA and Julie Eizenberg, AIA. The roots of the practice were in affordable housing and small design/build projects and the discipline of tight budgets and hands on pragmatism established the character of the firm. Nowadays projects vary in scale from exhibits and small additions to masterplanning and cross the gamut of building types. Koning Eizenberg attracts projects that require a re-evaluation of contextual and programmatic conventions and delivers enduring social and environmentally sustainable places. Their ‘people oriented’ work has earned over 70 design awards and has been extensively published - the principals leverage this credibility to influence and change the context as well as craft buildings that, by example, raise expectations for design in the public realm. Notable projects include the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh, Hancock Mixed Use, LA Downtown Standard Hotel, John Adams Middle School, Austin Children’s Museum, AMP Lofts and the Santa Monica Village.
