Studio Philosophy

BZ-A specializes in the design and execution of custom design projects in the residential, and commercial environments. Our philosophy is to promote a collaborative process at the early stages of the project between the client, architect and the entire building team. We begin this philosophy by first understanding and solving problems in order to arrive at a formal manifestation of the project.

We have over 30 years of experience in the fields of architecture and construction administration. Our knowledge of the building process allows us to offer expertise in all phases of a project, from land assessment through construction administration. We have developed a network of consultants including permit expediters, environmentalists, engineers, solar and passive energy technicians, landscape architects, acoustical consultants and home theater design. We seek out new technologies and building practices. Our work has led us to involvement with Hydrogen Fuel Cell technology for heating and electrical supply; green design and Leed Certification; cutting edge audio/visual systems including THX certified theaters; landscape conservation and rainwater collection and irrigation, to name a few.

Our twenty five year working relationship with world renowned Legorreta + Legorreta Arquitectos of Mexico City has amounted to an "extension" of their office for residential work in the United States. Through this association we have worked on multimillion dollar projects belonging to exclusive clientele. We have worked with many interior design firms, lighting designers and specialty engineers from New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles. We have worked with renowned glass designers, artists and furniture makers around the world. We are exemplary at managing large teams of professionals for large and small projects alike. It's what we do and who we are.
