History

Founded in 1975 by Don Barker, Ron Rinker and Russell Seacat, our firm has evolved and matured steadily over its decades-long history. Our offices have moved from Walnut Street to Blake Street to a couple different locations on 15th Street to our current home at the TAXI development in Denver's River North Art District (we think it's a pretty cool spot). We've designed multifamily housing, offices, elementary schools, higher education facilities, park structures, performing arts venues, cultural centers, churches and synagogues, clubhouses, resorts, city halls, libraries, community recreation and wellness centers, master plans and more!

What began as a collaboration of three architects who were passionate about making "great good places" has grown into a richly integrated design practice with projects in over 200 communities throughout the United States. While our goals and objectives continue to evolve, we remain true to our original mission: "To design joyful, functional architecture that meets the needs of the people it serves and to enhance, enrich and contribute to the quality of life of the community." We pride ourselves in the job we've done to accomplish that mission so far, but we're also committed to continuing its pursuit with the same passionate energy and integrity upon which Don, Ron and Russ founded BRS in 1975.
