BFA+D have a proven track record of creating innovative and thoughtful design solutions for both new construction and building renovations. We engage in projects we are passionate about and approach each project in a holistic manner. Our team works closely with each Client throughout every aspect of the design process to ensure the result is a reflection of the Client’s vision.

In addition to architectural design, BFA+D provides other services including master planning, programming, historic structures assessment, restoration and rehabilitation plans, interior architecture and design, way-finding, construction administration, and other owner representation services. In collaboration with our team of highly experienced consultants, we also provide cost-estimating, electrical, mechanical, structural engineering, exhibit planning, lighting design and LEED certification services.


We enjoy and value our involvement with our local Santa Fe community as well as our Client-communities. Through an active outreach effort, BFA+D is continuously extending its hand, establishing meaningful partnerships with a variety of groups statewide including the Santa Fe Indian School, Leadership Institute, the University of New Mexico School of Architecture and Planning, and the Pueblo of Nambe.  We believe in “giving back” in ways that are of benefit to each community.  By offering technical expertise and other resources, we are contributing towards the realization of community goals, while assisting in building capacity and creating a sense of community ownership.

We are equally committed to the enhancement of educational opportunities for our younger citizens and are engaged in a number of unique programs at local schools and post-secondary institutions. One example is our Internship program and partnership with Northeastern University in Massachusetts.  We offer unique and relevant training opportunities for Architecture Interns by assigning specific project tasks and exposing them to the various aspects of the design process. From participating in the re-mudding of historic adobe buildings to offering lectures to our next generation of design professionals, BFA+D remains steadfast in its obligation and pledge towards community service.
