Multifamily Residential

Four decades of multifamily residential design experience includes master planning, market rate apartments, and on/off campus housing, in high-rise, low-rise, and town-home formats.

Mixed Use

Our mixed use design experience often begins with highest-and-best-use studies that inform a diverse range of programs and size and frequently include multifamily residential, office, hotel, retail, and parking with a complimentary amenity program.

Hospitality + Retail

Hospitality commissions span million-dollar to billion-dollar project budgets including feasibility studies, new construction, repositioning, and PIP’s for boutique hotels, extended stay/suites-style, full-service, convention hotels and large scale resorts.


Our office typologies include new construction projects, adaptive-reuse conversions, and value re-positioning.

Higher Education

BLT Architects’ higher education design experience encompasses campus district planning, feasibility studies, and both new construction and renovation projects ranging from 4000 SF to over 200,000 SF.

Parking & Intermodal

Transit, infrastructure, and parking design is centered on complex multi-modal systems, such as the the nexus of four modalities at the intersection of three stations: City Hall, 15th Street, and Suburban Station,the busiest complex in Philadelphia.


Founded in 1961 as Bower & Fradley, our boutique roots paired iconic design and exemplary management. The foundation of our firm is represented by these “classics” which play a role in the work we do today.
