The practice came to public attention with the New Art Gallery in Walsall, a commission won in an international competition in 1995. From these origins in the visual arts, where a sensitivity to experience and context is required, the practice has extended its expertise and now works on a broad range of projects in the public and private realms. Current clients include Tate Britain, the V&A, English Heritage and the Arts Council of England, as well as european housing developers Trudo, the SBB (Swiss National Railways) and the Gagosian Gallery. In 2008 and 2009, Polimekanos developed and designed a new website for the practice.
