bba Architects is a Chicago based architectural firm specializing in high-end single family residences. Established in 1993, we have worked with over 800 clients to design and build "dream" homes throughout the United States.
We offer you an open, collaborative attitude combined with the very highest quality work. As architects, we love pure design, but we aren't obsessed by it. We design for the real world.
We have created and constructed everything from vacation cottages to entire communities. We handle new construction, seamless additions, and impeccable renovations, in styles ranging from classical to ultra modern. Bring us your vision: we love every chance we get to flex our creative muscles.
With each project, we use our imagination, our experience and our craft to create beautiful, intelligent buildings that "live" as well as they look.
We also work with sustainable practices completing our first LEED Gold home in 2011. We work with a deconstruction company to ensure that everything being removed from your home is recycled and repurposed helping to save you money and more of our natural resources!
