Baxt Ingui Architects, P.C., is an architecture and interior design firm with extensive experience in residential, institutional, and commercial projects. Residential projects include townhouses, apartments, lofts, and country homes. Commercial projects include retail facilities, galleries, and multi-floor law offices. Institutional projects include educational and child-centered facilities.
We aim to create well composed spaces, placing a high value on ensuring each project is well crafted, visually timeless, and serves its inhabitants for many years. Our design process relies on collaboration with our clients and extends to the builders, consultants, and craftsmen with whom we work. It is our goal to integrate function, aesthetics and building systems economically and minimize the environmental impact, using the standards of LEED and Passive House certification. Numerous projects in our 37 year history have received design awards.
The firm was initiated by Ben Baxt in 1977 after several years as a single practitioner in Brooklyn. Michael Ingui joined the staff in 1994 and became a partner in 2000. Joseph Datema RA and Martha Valencia-Cordoba became Associates in 2013 and share responsibility for firm management. The staff also includes an interior design team and a highly experienced construction quality observer.
The firm is an active volunteer and supporter in many Brooklyn not-for-profit efforts, most notably, Brooklyn Community Housing and Services (bchands.org), where BIA has provided technical assistance for over 25 years and designed four projects pro bono.
