Our services

BC&J Architecture provides innovative, sustainable and site responsive solutions to architectural challenges large and small. Leading a staff of talented architects, project manners and building code experts, husband and wife founders Stella Carosso and Peter Brachvogel, AIA, guide each BC&J project from start to finish—a model perfected over thirty years in the business.


The BC&J team is expert at creating design solutions that reflect a client’s needs and desires, work within pre-determined budget parameters, and take into account environmental and neighborhood conditions and concerns. Since our founding in 1988 we’ve created hundreds of successful designs for projects of all sizes.


Land Use & Sales Enhancement Consulting

BC&J offers cost-effective design consulting to buyers and sellers interested in determining how a property might be modified or upgraded and the potential cost of such changes. Land use and sales enhancement consulting often involves a detailed site review which examines a property’s attributes and limitations.

Permit Acquisition & Facilitation

Modern building codes and regulations are complex and ever-changing. We have the in-house expertise necessary to successfully navigate every aspect of the permitting process and keep projects moving forward.
