Founded in 2006, bldgs is a full service architecture practice dedicated to the creation of inventive and enduring works of architecture and urban design. We believe that design excellence is achieved through an exceptionally detailed understanding of building form, spatial organization, the potential of program, an economy of means, and material innovation and constructability. We produce buildings that resonate with their environment, both natural and urban. We appreciate the contrasts and complexities that develop through a process of direct interaction with our clients.
