Bryan Solko, AIA, LEED AP

Architect / Senior Associate

Bryan joined BVH in 2006 while finishing his Masters in Architecture from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. Growing up in a low-density agricultural environment in South Dakota provided a great awareness of land conservation and simple-yet-creative design solutions. And it was while working in the construction field prior to college that he realized a need for smarter growth, better-designed communities and a need for improved collaboration between the construction and design practices, all of which thrust him into the field of architecture.

The Color Court project in South Haymarket, Lincoln, was a great springboard to simultaneously learn and develop additional interests in adaptive reuse, quality design, regional sustainability and collaborative project delivery methods. This singular project resulted in a LEED accreditation and architectural licensure shortly thereafter. Bryan continues to work methodically in developing and executing design solutions while fully coordinating and checking the work against project objectives, user needs, sustainable methodologies and construction constraints. He also enjoys seeing every project through construction to ensure the design is built to its highest performance.

Bryan always enjoys the opportunity to refresh the mind through physical activity, including edible gardening, hiking, bicycling, hunting, fishing, tent camping and anything else involving the great outdoors. He and his wife also enjoy vacationing to new places and experiencing new cultures through local food and spirits.
