The design includes interiors services including layouts, furniture, finishes, fixtures and fabrics, as well as artwork, graphics, and donor signage for new student bedrooms, classrooms, and common spaces including dining facilities, gyms, libraries, music rooms, and multi-function spaces.

Amidst much press and anticipation of the completion of the rehabilitation of the Watchcase Factory into housing, Beyer Blinder Belle's architectural historian Kate Lemos McHale reflects on the historic Village of Sag Harbor and her personal connections to the project.

Under the direction of Beyer Blinder Belle, New York City Hall has undergone the first comprehensive renovation in its 200-year lifetime, preparing it for another century of use as the city’s administrative hub. While the landmark looks much as it did originally, the building has been fortified with critical system updates that make it safer and more comfortable for its users.

The distinctive gilded pyramidal roof of the Thurgood Marshall US Courthouse shines with new luster these days. Following a comprehensive interior and exterior renovation and restoration, the architectural landmark and preeminent symbol of the Federal Government (site of the famous Alger Hiss and Rosenberg trials) has been revitalized for life in the 21st century and beyond.

Beyer Blinder Belle has been working with Amherst College on the development of a campus-wide framework plan initiated in 2013.

Managing Partner Frederick Bland was asked to present at the SCUP 2014 North Atlantic Symposium: “Building Excellence from the Ground Up: Stony Brook’s First 50 Years.” This symposium reflected on Stony Brook University’s rapid development into a leading public research university, examined several initiatives that transformed the Stony Brook campus, and the challenges and opportunities in maintaining a research university for the coming decades.

Throughout much of history, there was no distinction between architects, engineers, and builders. Instead, an individual—the master builder—conceived of the form and materials of a building at the outset and followed it through until construction came to an end, taking responsibility for all of the challenges that arose during the project. This kind of continuity throughout the life of a project is intuitively beneficial: engineering and construction requirements shape the approach long before ground is broken and design decisions need to be made until the final touches are in place. Many of the world's great monuments, from the Parthenon to Brunelleschi's Dome at the Florence Cathedral, were built in this way.

“It was thrilling to experience this first great milestone in the realization of a plan that will transform what has long felt like the back of the Princeton community and the University campus into a new front door – a gateway to the Princetons, a center for the arts, and a vibrant nexus of campus and community life. We are grateful to be a part of an incredibly dedicated team, to realize the University’s bold vision for a new neighborhood.”

"As an urban designer-architect, I approach design through the lens of city-making. Buildings and landscapes evolve, layering history, culture, and vitality onto the common ground of everyday life. At this intersection are some of our greatest opportunities—and obligations—for connecting people with their communities, and for designing a sustainable and more equitable future."
