BWArchitects (BWA) is an architecture, design & fabrication studio led by Founding Partner Basil Walter and Managing Partner Brenda Bello. Based New York City, the firm’s multi disciplinary team designs and executes environments and experiences across the globe.
The studio began its work in the late 1980’s in New York, restoring highly detailed interiors at the historic Dakota Apartments on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, and the study and appreciation of history and craftsmanship continues to inform the work of the practice today.
Since those early days, BWArchitects has been involved in a wide variety of project types, from residential and commercial architecture and interiors to hospitality and large scale special events. The studio maintains an active workshop for prototyping, model making and fabrication of key design elements for many of the projects it undertakes.
