The hallmark of BartonPartners' practice is an integrated, multi-disciplinary design approach. Our architects, urban designers, landscape architects and interior designers collaborate throughout the design process. This enables us to maximize the quality and efficiency of our projects, which are delivered on time and on budget. Our mission is to create sustainable, dynamic and marketable places that achieve our client's goals.
Founded in 1991, BartonPartners is a multi-disciplinary design firm comprised of architects, urban designers (site planners), landscape architects and interior designers. We provide an integrated design approach, which maximizes the quality and efficiency of our projects. With 40 professionals located in suburban Philadelphia, BartonPartners has offered professional design services for over twenty years throughout the eastern half of the United States. The disposition of our clients is indicative of our success, with over 80% of our projects coming through repeat work.
Many of our successful projects begin with a comprehensive land planning and urban design process. We understand that the building footprints shown on a site plan must accurately reflect efficient building forms appropriate for their use, and work with the site’s topographic constraints. Architecturally, our designs incorporate the flexibility necessary to maximize the design impact of the public spaces, streets and the other spaces between buildings. We believe that the land plan is as important as the architectural design in creating an exciting, marketable place. Equally as important, we create long term value to our client’s projects through cost-saving construction techniques, and the incorporation of energy efficient building systems.
Our philosophy on sustainability is also a bit unique - we believe that the most sustainable solutions go beyond individual building systems and green building practices. Truly sustainable projects incorporate a mix of uses, enhanced walkability, and transit orientation. Our fully integrated team of Architects, Landscape Architects, and Planners tackle redevelopment projects with this philosophy in mind. This team includes both LEED Accredited Professionals as well and NAHB Certified Green Professionals.
