BNIM was founded 40 years ago with a commitment to design excellence and keen civic consciousness. Today, the firm contributes across a broad spectrum of topics with benefits felt locally and nationally.
We are designers. Thinkers. Collaborators. Architects. Planners. Landscape Architects. Friends. We are dreaming of the future. We are sustainable. We are BNIM.

BNIM and its employees have cultivated a culture that is more like a family than simply a place of employment. The firm has a horizontal hierarchy; everyone is encouraged to participate in the activities of the firm and push it forward. Weekly “Friday at 5” social gatherings and on-site Yoga classes bring people together in pursuit of health and fun. The annual design symposium, weekly all-staff meetings, regular breakfasts and pot-luck lunches cultivate a culture of friendship and a spirit of camaraderie that permeates the studio environment.

“We selected BNIM Architects because of their focus on innovation, impeccable reputation and stature, but we got much more from them. With the exacting level of care and commitment to Architecture, the collaboration was the best our firm has experienced.”

Skip Backus, Executive Director, Omega Institute for Holistic Studies
“Along with their in-depth knowledge and experience, BNIM Architects brings a refreshing perspective to sustainable design and truly understands what we are trying to achieve with this project.”

Patricia L. Starck, Professor and Dean, University of Texas School of Nursing at Houston
“BNIM quickly put together a team and went to work to ensure that we would meet our goals as rapidly as possible. The BNIM team was capable and dedicated to the goals of the School and University. They had creative ideas about how to configure space so as to provide opportunities for formal and informal learning.”

Karen Lazowski, Former Director of Support Center Services, Applebee’s International, Inc.

“Our experience working with BNIM greatly exceeded our expectations. Their team provided us with ongoing leadership and expertise throughout the duration of the project. The design team began by listening to our senior leadership express their vision for the new space, and immediately began work toward that vision.”
