About Behr Browers Architects Inc.
Award winning and well established architecture design firm in Southern California for 30+ years. We are a very experienced and creative architectural office focused on designing unique, high quality architecture. Our high level of technical knowledge coupled with the use of the latest BIM based software allows us to organize, design, and develop very complex projects down to the smallest elements of a building. We recognizes that it is a process that requires construction knowledge during design. We always seek to find elegant, beautiful, and simple solutions that serve the program and engage their context. Regardless of whether the project is urban, suburban, or rural, we seek to create a design that “connects” to its surroundings in a variety of meaningful and useful ways. We do not pursue complexity for complexities sake. We believe that design starts with a well-resolved plan supported by a structure that fits the plan like a glove. We consider all our work to be contemporary even if it adopts a historical language. None of our projects look alike because they are not all in the same place. We do not have a singular vocabulary. Instead, we prefer to leave form, pattern, and material as variables in all our projects. We believe that our projects need to incorporate sustainable principles and should respect our environment but we are not slaves to LEED checklists or points. We believe that good architecture comes from a careful and intense process that considers as much as possible before it settles on a solution. We avoid incorporating elements and features that serve no purpose or are disengaged from the overall structure of a building. We work as a team where we expect each and every member to be engaged and committed to making sure that everything we do leads to the best possible outcome. The size of our office and the daily contact with experienced senior designers helps younger, less experienced members of the team grow more rapidly. We start each day seeking to be better at what we do.
