Through 45 years, BSB Design has proven that architecture is much more than creating structures. We are in the business of creating lifestyles.
Founded by Jack Bloodgood in 1966, the firm began with a strong emphasis in production housing design. Bloodgood brought architecture to the masses, and his philosophy was based on the idea that every person in America should have the opportunity to live in a home designed by an architect. He was a true innovator in the field, and his original inspiration lives on.
Bloodgood began his firm in Des Moines, IA, where he was working as building editor for Better Homes & Gardens magazine. His cross-country travels and exposure to the housing market helped him understand the consumer perspective, which led to the plan service element of his early business. He wanted to offer builders and buyers the opportunity to connect with architects like they never had before.
The firm eventually expanded its services to include all types of residential architecture, resulting in some of the most creative, unique designs ever rendered. Today's BSB Design projects span all price points and markets, extending Bloodgood's philosophy to all areas of architecture, planning and design.
Led by 12 talented partners with many diverse backgrounds, the firm employs over 50 architects, planners and support staff. BSB Design offices create regionally sensitive designs coast to coast. Expansion has led to the addition of land planning, landscape architecture, commercial design, and estimating opportunities that have only enhanced the firm's impressive portfolio.
Always seeking to establish trends instead of follow them, BSB Design promises to be a leader in the field for years to come.
