Baxt Ingui Architects, P.C. is an award-winning firm that has been a leader in design and sustainability for over 40 years. 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. We have extensive experience in residential, institutional and commercial projects.

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.

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. Martha Valencia-Cordoba became an Associate in 2013 and became responsible for the firm’s 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 multiple projects pro bono.
