We take our responsibility as designers of the built environment very seriously. Backed by a conviction to design better buildings, we utilize a simple but powerful collaborative process to guide each project to completion.

  • Inquiry

    Our process begins with rigorous inquiry and careful listening to understand your project, goals, challenges and opportunities. We dig deep into each project, looking for patterns and insights that provide context to solve your design problem. We challenge easy answers, and rely on proven data to guide insights and intuition. We also collaborate heavily at this stage with our clients to ensure we’re seeing the problem from every angle.

  • Exploration

    This phase of the process leverages the knowledge gained through research, creating solutions to test and scrutinize through the lens of the project’s goals. As a result, your project rightly responds to the specifics of site, place, material and time. We utilize our expertise in performance-based design to test the developing concepts. The intent of this iterative process is to utilize research and real data to narrow our focus onto a single solution.

  • Resolution

    Our process of inquiry and exploration culminates in a unique design suited perfectly to your project, responding to each need and opportunity to create the best solution possible. We carry the design from inception to completion, through each phase of design and documtenation and finally to construction and post-occupancy, to ensure everything is done right.

“I am pleased to support BVH Architecture from our experience over several construction projects. We’ve continually chosen to stay with BVH due to our high satisfaction with their performance.”
