Our Story

BKA Architects is a vibrant, full-service architectural and interior design firm that has provided award-winning design services to clients throughout the United States, Canada since 1974.

The projects BKA has undertaken have ranged from feasibility and master planning studies to new construction and repairs, renovations, additions, adaptive re-use of existing buildings, tenant fit-outs, prototype site adaptations, and prototype development. To each project, the firm brings significant experience and understanding of the needs clients have within the public, education, workplace, life science, manufacturing, retail, residential and cannabis sectors. On staff LEED Accredited Professionals bring the sustainable design and LEED certification experience to projects.

Client satisfaction is BKA’s primary focus. Our staff is dedicated to leading projects from the programming and design phases through to the completion of construction. The process BKA uses is to gain a clear understanding of the goals and parameters the client has for the project, identify the services to be provided, and then provide the client with an appropriate design solution often while working within demanding deadlines, tight budgets and fast-track schedules.


Through architecture and design, we help organizations succeed by providing innovative solutions to challenges of the built environment.

Our mission is to deliver exceptional design solutions and purposeful retail, academic, and commercial environments through an inspired and collaborative, value-driven design process.


Inspire: An unwavering commitment to creativity lies at the core of the BKA vision. We recruit individuals who are passionate about architecture and have an inherent drive to succeed. We support and empower our team with the freedom to grow, the space to dream, and enable them to deliver uniquely inspired solutions to the challenges of the built environment.

Deliver: Purposeful delivery is a key attribute of the BKA vision, since exceptional design is meaningless unless it can become reality. We are committed to an inspired design process ignited by innovation and creativity, yet rooted in the quantifiable objectives of our clients.

Excel: A steadfast commitment to excellence is a critical driver of the BKA vision. From the team we lead, to the projects and environments we are engaged to design and build, the highest standards of quality are applied to every deliverable and client interaction.
