The Architect & The Client are but two Collaborators in the Journey to Create a Beautiful, Functional & Memorable Building.  
Collaboration has been at the center of our ethos long before it became a buzzword in the world of business.   A building without this underlying approach becomes a narrowly focused ego driven process that we have no interest in being a participant.  If you're ready to be engaged and take the time to look within; we're the Designers for you! 
What's your family story ?  Describe a typical day, weekend & week in a home that houses your family.  What do you want out of this experience?  Are you Considering how your needs will change as time unfolds?  Tell us how you feel when you see this particular space, or walk into this room.  Do you like to rise early and contemplate in solitude or do you like to sleep in and arrive at a breakfast table full of Conversation and plan making for the day?  We ask these questions to all family members.......and we even ask that you commit these ideas to paper.  Don't worry; it's an open format! Be Creative! 
The Foundation of the Socratic process begins with theses experiential Conversations which become abetted by visual inspiration images.  Together we weave these items into an underlying "Brand" that supports the decision making Process along the way.
Collaborative Contributors are determined very early in the process.  This way everyone has a seat at the table and an open ear to expectations and discord about the project.

Chris can be found overlooking the pacific ocean in our Studio West location in Santa Barbara.  If you can't find him there you might look on a racetrack such as Laguna Seca (see above) testing the limits of his Citroen.  Chris & Joe started BPC 20+ years ago and have weathered various iterations of BPC with successful collaboration.  Chris has a razor sharp ability to summarize a 60 minute zoom meeting into 30 seconds of well organized directives. Chris is the resident expert in all things CAD, Construction, Details & Design

Joe 's passion for design & construction began with fort-building with his brother Jeff. He's inspired by vernacular architecture that responds to culture & climate. The first book  on architecture that he owned was "Architecture without Architects".  Joe's perception of beauty centers around authenticity, integrity and genuineness; therefore he sees successful design as one that is people-centric VS an ego driven attachment to a personal style.  Joe is a licensed architect in Massachusetts, New York, Vermont, Connecticut, Maine, Colorado, Florida & North Carolina.
