Billings received a Master of Architecture degree from University of Pennsylvania, in 1981 and became registered as an
architect in Pennsylvania, in 1987. He has been in general practice of architecture and interior design since then.
During that time, Brian J. Billings Architects has worked for a wide variety of clients- residential, commercial
and municipal, as well as non-profit agencies. We have executed numerous designs for additions, alterations, renovations, and
new construction. These designs range widely in size, type and complexity of design.
One of our most recently completed projects is a development of four new houses, on a reclaimed urban site. These
homes were developed by a public-private collaboration, for moderate income families and they utilize energy efficiency
and passive solar features. Other recent projects include a 3,600 square foot custom home, on a lake in central
Pennsylvania and a variety of residential additions, large and small.
Earlier projects include renovations to a 30,000 square foot office complex, to create executive offices for a company
employing 140 people in their local headquarters. On a smaller scale are the renovations of various late nineteenth and
early twentieth century buildings, as offices for non-profit agencies. These projects and others have involved historic
buildings in National Register districts as well as National Register listed structures.
Our commitment to sustainability, in addition to many years of direct experience in construction, adds significant value
for our clients. We believe that simple, practical designs, well executed, create beauty in the environment and create places
where people want to be. Good architecture comes from attending to the basics: addressing the needs of the client; design based
on timeless principles, and scrupulous attention to detail.
Brian J. Billings Architects is dedicated to serving the particular needs of each client, by creating design
solutions that are technically sound, functionally efficient and beautiful. We accomplish these goals by listening
to our clients and understanding their concerns, by increasing our knowledge of technical developments and by our
dedication to personalized service.
