At Billes Architecture we strive to create environments – neighborhoods, communities, and individual buildings – that create a connection with those who are affected by them. The firm provides project development and architectural services to clients who seek innovative design in their projects, while supporting and enhancing the existing neighborhoods and the lifestyles of those that use the completed structures and spaces.

One Client described the selection of our firm for their project with the following statement: “Billes Architecture was chosen because the firm is creative, budget conscious, and client specific”. These qualities can be seen in our firm philosophy and in our work.
