Established in 2000, BBB’s DC office has developed into a major architectural practice with a portfolio of diverse projects and established relationships with the city’s architectural community and its most important review agencies. During this time, the office has been involved in several initiatives – combining city planning, urban design, and historic preservation – that are repairing and revitalizing previously neglected and underutilized areas of downtown DC.

“It’s been a privilege to lead the renovation of this extraordinary and important building. We see design as a process, not a product.

These improvements will add value to the city of Baltimore and its residents now and in the future.”
