BFDO Architects is an award-winning architecture and design firm based in New York City founded in 2006 by Alexandra Barker, AIA. We work at a broad range of scales and programs, from residential and interior projects to retail, institutional and cultural buildings and spaces. We embrace the challenge of bringing into dialogue each project’s unique inputs–from requirements, restrictions, and constraints to influences, desires, and dreams–to produce buildings and spaces that enduringly engage the evolving conditions of contemporary life. We enjoy working through the complexities of sites from dense urban conditions to delicate coastal landscapes. Our residential clients range from professional couples with families to writers and artists. We have extensive experience with everything from Brooklyn brownstones to Tribeca lofts to Upper West Side apartment combinations as well as coastal and upstate weekend houses. Our commercial portfolio includes wellness and retail projects as well as creative business offices, while our institutional work includes preschool design and speculative projects at larger scales. Our work has received awards and recognition from the AIA, Architect’s Newspaper, Architizer, and NYCxDesign. Projects have been featured in Metropolis, Architecture, Architectural Record, ARC Magazine, Architect’s Newspaper, Dezeen, ArchDaily, New York Magazine, and Brownstoner. A monograph of the firm’s work is expected in the fall of 2018.
