A Personalized Approach to Architecture

In designing both new homes and home renovations, we practice "personal architecture" at Bickford and Company. By this term, we mean individualized residential architecture, developed through a team approach involving not only our staff of professional designers, but also the builder and especially you — the client. We take great pride in creating client-centered custom designs and in resolving difficult or unusual circumstances to achieve the result best suited to your needs.


Matching Your Style

Bickford and Company makes it a point not to have a signature "style." Our principal designer, Scott Bickford, stresses your preferences more than his own artistic expression. We work within the context as much as possible, designing with respect for the project's surroundings, be they a rural setting, a historic neighborhood, or a brand-new suburb. We regard the house not just as an abstract exercise of the designer's artistic virtuosity and technical skill, but primarily as an adjunct to your lifestyle and as an expression of your character, values, and status.

Focused on You

Our professional goal is not to design what we ourselves would like to live in, but to advance the practice of personal architecture. Your needs are our focus, though we are also cognizant of the environment of which each project is a part, and of the requirements and abilities of each of the builders with whom we collaborate. For you, this inclusive, integrated approach results in a distinctive, well-made home that both complements its setting and, in turn, serves as a compatible setting for the manner in which you want to live.
