The firm’s domestic and international work spans a vast array of typologies, including residential, commercial, educational and arts institutions.
B.ARCHs is known for good quality design architecture that is timeless manifestation of place, at once distinctive and modern while always thoughtful about site, settings and environment.
Fundamental to this pursuit is the belief that building design is a progressive process informed by client aspirations, site, history, available resources, and time. We believe that design can motivate and inspire users, and make an affirmative, lasting impact on individuals and communities alike.
The end products are functional, beautiful, innovative, and sustainable spaces that elegantly integrate into their surroundings.
“Architecture is about balance: the balance between form and function, between creative and practical, and between the built and natural environment. Our cooperative approach to architecture means that our design teams are both grounded and progressive, and that our designs are both attainable and sustainable. Through collaboration, peer critiques, and design mentorship, we apply best practices to meet the current and future needs of our clients and communities.”
A culture of collaboration enables us to produce responsive, innovative, and sustainable architecture. We work closely with our clients to craft thoughtful and forward-thinking solutions, while our commitment to the environment, to design excellence, and to technological innovation grows out of the passions of our entire staff.

B.archs is committed to developing sustainable and environmentally conscious design solutions while meeting our clients' budget and expectations. Our staff includes LEED accredited professionals (LEED AP), representing knowledge and experience in integrated design as well as the ability to facilitate the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification process.
Sustainability isn’t something we do; it’s something we live. We all have a responsibility to the environment and to future generations.
Our sustainable designs incorporate a “whole systems approach.” Minimizing the impact of the project on our environment, we take into account the building envelope, electrical and mechanical systems, site characteristics, local environment, and materials used. Our plans for municipalities and neighborhoods consider how to balance transportation demands and economics with environmental conservation, historic preservation, and the community’s quality of life.
We believe that sustainability doesn’t have to cost more. Using integrated design, analysis, and research, we design projects that take a practical and efficient approach to sustainability.
