  • Creating beautiful, functional spaces is something that we pride ourselves on. And sometimes, it goes beyond a building. I was tasked with designing and producing a functional bench for our Omaha studio that reflected the creative culture of the office. Anyone can order furniture out of a catalog, or place a wood slab on a […] The post Beauty in Simplicity appeared first on BVH Architecture.

  • This article originally appeared on Docomomo-US.org.  Search for modernist architect Edward Durell Stone and you will discover his seminal works, such as The Museum of Modern Art, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and the American Embassy in New Delhi. Some of his works are praised, others dismissed, as he layered decoration […] The post Mid Century Modern in the Midwest appeared...

The Space Between

  • In art, we call it negative.  In music, a pause.  In meditation, it’s the time between breaths.  In Japan, it is a simple word ‘Ma’ which carries with it a huge amount of meaning.  Literally translated to mean the “space between,” ma simultaneously describes both physical space and time.   Ma is the blank page […] The post The Space Between appeared first on BVH Architecture.

  • The Nebraska State Capitol is possibly the most beautiful in the nation. Every detail has a purpose in telling the story of Nebraska and the result is a comprehensive work of art by New York architect Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue (1869-1924). Its plan was ingenious in that it was built around the then-current and crumbling Capitol, […] The post The Final Piece: The Nebraska State Capitol Courtyard Fo...

  • We are in a time of massive awareness of the limits of the resources of our planet. Coincidentally, it’s also a time when post-WWII architecture is becoming old enough to be considered valuable from a historic sense. We believe the intersection of these historical perspectives presents a compelling opportunity for the future of architecture. It’s been said that […] The post Why Rehabilitation Matt...

  • Throughout my career, I’ve had the privilege of documenting and preserving a myriad of historic projects. Whether it’s the use of materials or the circumstances surrounding the site, each project has its own history that I can be a part of uncovering. My passion stems not only in the act of preservation itself, but in my […] The post Documenting Old Structures with New Tools appeared first on BVH ...

  • As I look forward to graduating on Friday, I’ve looked back on the past two years of my academic and professional career. I have been working here at BVH for about 20 hours a week while pursuing my Master of Architecture degree at UNL. While it has been a lot of work, and there have been some stressful […] The post Graduating Grad School: Working While Completing My M. Arch appeared first on BVH A...

Generational Vectors

  • It is no secret life expectancy – and therefore, work life expectancy –  has rapidly increased in the last 100 years. Because of this, coworkers of multiple generations find themselves in the same environment. That’s not going away anytime soon. In fact, according to an article in Forbes, there will be a total of five […] The post Generational Vectors appeared first on BVH Architecture.

  • Northeast Community College: Sustainable, Holistic Building Design

    BVH views sustainability as a holistic, creative endeavor. We take a whole-systems approach which privileges the interactions and relationships between systems over the individual strategy or part. We think in terms of relationships, connectedness and context in the creation of thoughtful, human-centered, high-performance projects. A recent example of this idea is the new dining space […] The post...

  • Designing Responsibly: Reinvigorating a BVH Legacy

    I recently attended a viewing of “Before the Flood,” a documentary chronicling Leonardo DiCaprio’s 3- year journey exploring the impacts of climate change around the world. The screening was hosted by the UNL College of Architecture student U.S. Building Green Council group. To be frank, the film, while beautifully shot by National Geographic, was quite […] The post Designing Responsibly: Reinvigo...

  • BVH Thought Leadership

    Let’s try a thought experiment. Recall a moment when you lost complete awareness of time and surroundings. What were you doing? Where was your focus? It’s safe to presume your answer includes some activity, project or issue that you’re deeply passionate about. This intense focus allows you to invest a level of energy uncommon in your everyday, […] The post BVH Thought Leadership appeared first on ...

  • The Work of Many Hands: BVH.io.desk

    As part of our recent rebranding efforts, BVH has renovated the front reception desk in our Lincoln office. While our original desk was great, the redesign provided the opportunity to test a few crazy ideas, explore an unconventional design process, and produce a design element that serves to demonstrate the core values of BVH. First […] The post The Work of Many Hands: BVH.io.desk appeared first ...

  • Reflections on Philadelphia

      Oh, Philadelphia. The land of Ben Franklin, the Liberty Bell and many a cheesesteak. Last week, we traveled to the historical city as a studio, seeking architectural inspiration. For many, it was their first time in the city of Brotherly (and now, Sisterly) love. For others, it was a return to a vibrant city […] The post Reflections on Philadelphia appeared first on BVH Architecture.

  • BVH Goes to Philadelphia

    Every few years, our entire firm embarks on a retreat together outside of Nebraska. The experience allows us to reconnect with our organizational goals and explore another city and its urban fabric together. As you’ve read in previous posts, we’ve had a lot of exciting changes this year – many of which set the foundation […] The post BVH Goes to Philadelphia appeared first on BVH Architecture.

  • 21st Century Learning Environments

    Coming from a family of educators (and being the occasional university educator myself), designing learning environments has always been a privilege and joy throughout my architectural career. In the past few years, my fervor has grown by leaps and bounds as the old industrial model has started evolving through new pedagogies and curriculum. These changes […] The post 21st Century Learning Environ...

  • Emerge: Designing and Building a Micro-dwelling

    This past summer I had the opportunity to participate in a unique design-build studio through the University of Nebraska – Lincoln’s College of Architecture. The three-week program, located in Oregon, consisted of about 14 architecture students. Emerge is a product of Jason Griffiths’ design – build studio, partnered with Bauman Tree Farms. The program was […] The post Emerge: Designing and Buildi...

  • Becoming an Architect

    It’s official: I’m an architect. This year, three architects in the BVH family – Zach Soflin, Michael Harpster and myself – have attained licensure. I successfully completed my exams in August, and just last month had my licensure ceremony at the Nebraska State Capitol. Family and friends joined me as I was given a largely-framed […] The post Becoming an Architect appeared first on BVH Architectur...

  • Driving Our Core Beliefs

    In case you hadn’t heard – we got some new wheels. What prompted this desire to suddenly go car shopping? In the previous two posts, we’ve discussed sustainability and how we’re incorporating it as a fundamental part of our practice. We’ve expressed our desire, as architects and designers, to design responsibly for generations to come. […] The post Driving Our Core Beliefs appeared first on BVH Ar...

    In the past few posts, we explored what we believe as a firm and introduced the newest group of individuals charged with ensuring those beliefs are reflected in our business practices. But true change occurs on all levels, and while we need high-level guidance to steer us towards our goals, leadership within the studios is […] The post Announcing BVH’s New Leadership Team appeared first on BVH Arc...

  • Announcing Three New Principals in Our Firm

    “To exemplify excellence” is a term that has been tossed around so often it has gone beyond cliché and all but been lost to semantic satiation. Every day, you hear of someone who has exemplified excellence in their city, community or career. And everyone understands it to mean the same thing: that he or she […] The post Announcing Three New Principals in Our Firm appeared first on BVH Architecture...
