BH offers architectural and interior design services in a variety of markets with a focus on vacant and underutilized structures located in Detroit’s downtown neighborhoods. Our goal is to find reinvigorated purposes for existing structures that help add intangible value to the community in ways that are financially, environmentally, and socially sustainable. In a city designed to accommodate the speed and scale of the automobile, we slow things down to explore the small scale, the tactile, the overlooked, and the material to inform an approach that is experiential. 


BH offers high quality graphic design that is adaptable for print, web, signage, or letterpress.

With our intimate knowledge of the downtown real estate markets, BH can be an especially terrific aid to novice, suburban, or out-of-area investors looking for viable development projects. Of course, we also work with those that have been committed to city development for years. We know the city process through and through and look forward to advising channeled development into Detroit. 

BH is structured such that design profits are channeled into our own small scale development projects in transitional neighborhoods. Walking the walk through Detroit’s often harried development process helps us advise our clients in a more informed and reliable way. With your projects and ours, we hope to stabilize communities through the reuse of existing and historic properties in order to facilitate stronger markets and future development.
