BVH finds the seam between the priorities of both building tenants and owners to create purpose-driven designs, profitability, and a sense of place. The project can only be considered a success if the building works for everyone.
Through a commitment to building type diversity, community amenities, high performance design and a unique approach to every project, we help create projects that foster a long-lived sense of community.
BVH isn’t interested in copy-and-paste architecture. Your building must respond to the site, the context of the neighborhood, and the needs of your budget. We build proficiency in the unit designs without recycling spaces unsuited for the project.
We have experienced straightforward new construction and complex historic infills, low income and market rate apartments, large podium projects and compact row houses. This variety calls for a wide range of funding strategies like Historic Tax Credits, TIF, and other incentive programs. We work directly with the owner to assure their financial strategy is achieved with the design.
It’s not enough to include an amenity to check a box. Identifying components that are timeless in a trend assures tenants will be attracted to the community for years to come. Introducing art, outdoor features, and community space is so important. The spaces between are opportunities.
High performance systems and sustainable materials will pay dividends in life cycle costs and work hand in hand with marketing strategies for potential residents who care for the health of their environment. Efficiency puts dollars right back into the pockets of building owners and tenants alike. Sustainability is not a feature, it builds a quality of life.
