Trevor Harris and Hennu Kjisik founded Harris-Kjisik Architects in 1985. The office sensitively approaches the existing urban fabric while proposing new and innovative designs tailored to each site.
A large share of the work has been commissioned as a result of success in architectural competitions and the office has won more than forty prizes nationally and internationally. Works by Harris-Kjisik Architects have been widely published in professional journals and appeared in major exhibitions including the Biennale in Venice.
The firm’s expertise focuses mainly on urban spatial regeneration, strategic planning and the design of public buildings. The practice and its partners have had professional and academic involvement in more than 30 countries. Both partners are actively involved in teaching activities as well as in research both at home and abroad.
