Firm DescriptionBVH Architecture is a purpose-driven design practice committed to an immersive and collaborative creative process.
We seek to create architecture which enhances and inspires the community in which it serves.
BVH Architecture has engaged in the design and preservation of our built environment through the practices of architectural design, interior architecture and planning since 1968. Our studio locations in Omaha and Lincoln are home to 53 staff dedicated to transforming lives by pursuing our passion to create places of wonder.
A visit to one of our design studios illustrates the creative and collaborative design culture we embrace. We utilize an open and energetic environment which allows a unique approach to projects with the collective knowledge of everyone in the studio, and we encourage our clients and the community to engage with us in our design pursuits. Building consensus with committees, constituents and boards is second nature and inherent to our culture.
At the core of our design practice lies the desire to do more with built environments than meet minimum requirements. How can we create spaces that actually transform a person’s life? The foundation of our optimism as designers lies in our ability to inspire people and make places that contribute to the vitality of communities. Our vision can only be achieved by focusing on Core Beliefs:
// A COMMITMENT TO PEOPLE
We go beyond building design and invest in our community through an authentic, collaborative and meaningful dialogue. We’re interested in the multiplicity of voices—not just our own—to build consensus among everyone involved and impacted by our projects.
// THE PURSUIT OF KNOWLEDGE
Our practice draws inspiration from immersive research and investigation—we love to learn. As a result, our projects respond to the context of their place, material and time.
// A SENSE OF WONDER
We believe design excellence combines the tenets of function, economy, performance and beauty. When these tenets converge, our projects have the chance to inspire, creating a sense of wonder.
