Award-winning architect Peter Brachvogel, partner Stella Carosso, and the BC&J team have created hundreds of elegant, enduring designs for clients throughout the Pacific Northwest and beyond. We’re delighted to share these examples of residential, work in progress, neighborhood planning and mixed use projects.
“Thanks to Stella and Peter, we have achieved our vision for transforming a 50-year-old family home into a modern dream. They refined and embellished our rather raw vision, adding thoughtful ideas, details, and gorgeous finishes while helping us to retain original charm. And, they have held our hands gently through a sometimes challenging renovation process.”
"Our project entailed designing a custom waterfront home for entertaining and eventual retirement. In just a few meetings, Peter and Stella had taken dozens of our fragmented ideas and Houzz photos and shaped them into a single conceptual design that we were very excited about. We love our beach house and are thankful to BC&J for making it a rewarding experience."
“We hired BC&J to design a 2200 sqft workshop which would sit comfortably on a narrow lot and blend in with the other buildings on the site. Peter listened carefully to the design objectives for the outside of the building and since the interior was a bit out of their wheelhouse, a woodworking shop, the team took careful notes for my exact specifications. The project turned out beautifully and we were able to speed through a rather demanding permitting process. We would hire them again and recommend.”
"We purchased a 1930’s era beach home that had been enlarged and remodeled several times over the years. It was chopped up into awkward rooms and wasted space and was a bit neglected. Stella, Peter and their staff were attentive to our goals and budget and developed an extremely comfortable design that made the best use of every square foot of space. We love our new home and highly recommend BC&J."
"The BC&J team is fantastic. We have now engaged them for three separate structures on our property, starting with our boathouse “repair”; then onto designing our carriage house; and, now, our main house. They are a great team; fun to work with and highly talented in bringing new and creative ideas to the forefront."
"We are incredibly pleased with Peter and Stella's innovative vision and design skills. Our project entailed a complete remodel of our 1954 Everett home. Despite our distance of more than 2,000 miles during the remodel project, Peter and Stella kept in touch, involving us with their plans and adapting them as needed to suit our preferences and budget. And on top of that, they were wonderful to work with."
“If you’re looking for thoughtful, capable, creative architects, Peter Brachvogel, Stella Carosso and staff are the dream team. They enabled us to realize our vision of a perfect home, and they’re great fun to work with!”
