BBB’s diverse work is unified by a persistent exploration of historic, cultural, and civic meaning, with a design sensibility that reflects the materials and technology of today. Planning, historic preservation, and the design of new buildings are the fundamental underpinnings of the firm’s practice, and many projects involve the stewardship of historic buildings in sensitive urban sites—the work for which BBB has become best recognized.
