culture + distinction

Character, pride, and culture are the heart of our distinctive contributions to the towns, villages, and cities we live in.  Our built designs instill civic pride and community identity.  With experience that spans the spectrum of work in the public realm, ranging from adaptive reuse of historic structures to the enhancement of public spaces.  We do this to improve functionality and aesthetics.  Our impressive portfolio includes libraries, courthouses, municipal offices, fire stations, and training facilities.  Since good design enriches and transforms lives, we embrace collaboration with the people we serve.  In this manner, Bivens Architects strengthens the social fabric while enlivening and sustaining environments.  By respecting communal heritage while envisioning generations of pride, our designs become fitting and lasting icons of place.   And whether the project is large or small, we take pride in safeguarding the public’s trust by showing fiscal restraint while celebrating local context.
