Eskew+Dumez+Ripple is a design-driven studio producing diverse projects in architecture, interior environments, and urban strategies. By blending a signature collaborative process with professional talent, creative thinking and emerging technologies, we meet the needs of our clients through unique and efﬁcient problem solving.
We create distinguished projects of their own time and place whose authenticity is expressed in each aspect of massing, scale, urban siting, design details and sustainable materials. Our commitment to enhance and protect both the cultural and natural environments of the communities we serve is evident in the beauty and technical craftsmanship of our designs and the long-term sustainability of our projects.
Based in New Orleans, we use the world-renowned cultural heritage of our city as inspiration for a design practice of national range and recognition. The result is a vibrant portfolio that includes research laboratories, marine facilities, interpretative centers and museums as well as ofﬁce buildings, hospitality spaces, academic and healthcare facilities.
Seven ﬁrm Principals lead our cross-disciplinary studio of professionals, promoting design excellence, efﬁ cient project delivery, and mastery of technical construction systems. We actively pursue environmental sustainability, elegant craftsmanship and spirited collaboration with our clients and our communities.
