BRICKSTACK Architecture + Design

Brickstack Architects derives its name less from visions of aging brick factories and more from a simple notion that bricks are common, elemental building blocks of architecture. By itself, the brick is a simple and lifeless material. Yet with the guidance of an architect and the skilled hands of a mason, that ordinary block of clay becomes something extraordinary.

We also believe that nothing elevates the human spirit like good, old fashioned, honest hard work. The making of architecture is not a singular effort, but the embodiment of many hands, working toward a unified goal of what Vitruvius described as firmitas, utilitas, and venustas, or firmness, commodity and delight.

Brickstack Architects is a practice founded on the core principles of personal customer service, design excellence, environmental stewardship and ensuring quality and lasting craftsmanship + construction.
