As a multidisciplinary design studio, bDot uses the tools of architecture and the creative process to tell the unique and distinguished stories of our clients through projects of any size or purpose.
Understanding the importance of this process, we intentionally develop an open discussion with our clients, manufacturers, engineers and contractors that enable us to have a clear understanding of the appropriate approach towards innovative design solutions. For it is through this process that we pursue the connection of functional resolution, artistic works, financial understandings and environmental accountability.
Our portfolio is diverse, ranging from residential, commercial, medical and retail buildings to artistic installations, furniture and lighting design. As a studio, we are devoted to the pursuit of creating meaningful, relevant and thoughtful works.
Let us help you tell your story.
