What We Do
DBA provides architecture, design, planning, and project management services. We work at the residential scale where our work engages the very personal and private architectural environment, our home. We work closely with homeowners to design their most important spatial experience.
We also work in the public realm. Our work engages other human gathering places through our public and institutional projects. DBA is experienced, efficient, and comfortable working with multiple stakeholder groups, institutions and agencies.
Home & Habitat. Our homes are especially important to us. They offer us a lifestyle and a way of life. It is an architectural environment that reflects our culture, our beliefs, our climate and the technology we have available to us to build. This place is a true reflection of who we are and how we like to live. It should be well considered.
Community, Arts & Education. Community is important now, more than ever. Our public buildings vary in size and use. They range in program and in typology, but they all share a common approach to fostering community, gathering, and improving social and professional interaction.
Whether a restaurant, a classroom, or a theater, we understand how people meet and interact and can provide the perfect space to enhance that experience for all.
Special Projects. Our experience includes the design, fabrication and construction of some extraordinary projects, each of them unique in their own way. Using traditional materials in not-so-traditional ways, we assemble and collaborate with the most innovative and thoughtful engineering teams, worldwide, to provide solutions that others cannot.
