B2 Architecture + Design opened in 2007 with the philosophy that great spaces should tell a story. B2 focuses on Hospitality, Multifamily, Student Housing, Hospitality and Senior Living projects and holds licenses in Arkansas, Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Florida, Oregon, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Washington.
Given the basic variables within any design challenge – client preferences, goals, budget, and location – each requires unique consideration. To arrive at tailored solutions, B2 invests time up front to understand each client’s specific aspirations. As a result, B2 projects do not have a signature style; its multi-disciplinary team of Architects and architect- trained interior designers consistently strive to interpret each client’s vision to shape the story they want to tell through their built space.
The Project Designer directs programming, visioning design development and management strategy processes. Along with the Project manager, the Project Designer originates and develops design concepts and is the author of project development from initial concept through construction administration.
Along with the Project manager, the Project Designer works as the principal creative leading the design team to generate a unique vision of our clients’ story through great design. The Project Designer also acts as the lead project manager in the production of project design materials. The Project Designer acts as a resource to the design staff in guiding the design direction and coordinates schedules and delegate design development activities. Along with the Project manager, the Project Designer is the direct liaison between B2 and our client, as well as other consultants involved in the project design.

B2 Architecture + Design is committed to hiring a diverse team and is an equal opportunity employer.
You can learn a lot about a person by where they choose to live, stay, and play. We are drawn to spaces that reflect their locale, and variety appeals to different sensibilities depending on occasion and aspiration. Most of us can’t quite explain our tastes and preferences, but we like what we like and know it when we experience it—whether for a couple hours over dinner, a few days over a vacation, or many years right at home.
At B2 Architecture + Design, we design engaging spaces with a fresh, creative vision at the center. For over a decade, we’ve collaborated with clients to help shape the stories they want to tell through built space. With our commitment to great design and world-class service, we’ve created more than 70 unique spaces in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Washington — and had tons of fun along the way.
