The studio is a collaborative practice; Johanna Meyer-Grohbrügge from Germany and Sam Chermayeff from New York. The two met at SANAA in Tokyo where they worked from 2005 to 2010. Their new venture, June14 Meyer-Grohbrügge&Chermayeff, begins with a desire to make things, places and atmospheres for people. The office and work aims to have people relate to architecture, for architecture to relate to people and for people to relate to themselves. June14 searches for an understanding of different ways of living and working in the contemporary world. The work stems from a belief that architecture can make things happen and that things can happen to architecture. The office is an exchange with its users. It is open to new ideas.
On a practical level the principals have experience with a wide range of projects from small gardens and bespoke furniture to office towers. The office’s intention is to expand that range while maintaining a dynamic understanding of the human scale.
The office is based in Berlin and New York.
