The Gwynne building, home to Gwynne Sound, was commissioned by Alice Claypoole Vanderbilt, former matriarch of the Vanderbilt family. She erected the building in the name of her Father, Evan Gwynne, a judge in Cincinnati. Completed in 1914, the building is an example  of the Beaux-Arts architectural style, featuring classical decorative elements and Art Nouveau metal work. We took this research and combined it with what we heard from the studio team to develop three aesthetic avenues to ideate on.
