A Rocky Mountain native, Brent brings a background in graphic design and a desire for innovative building technology to Arch11.
Brent came to Arch11 with a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Design from the University of Colorado, Boulder. During his time at university, he worked on award winning projects including winning Editor’s Choice in the Laka Competition ‘Architecture that Reacts’ for his project Collective Minimalism and its exploration of innovative ideas that go beyond traditional building solutions.
He gained hands on experience as a student lead for his program’s work on an award-winning design + build for the Denver Botanic Gardens, where he applied his knack for tinkering and craft to the design and construction of two mobile ticket centers to serve as a welcoming and adaptable beacon for visitors. Through this collaborative student project, Brent developed a heightened attention to detail and an understanding of how construction detailing can poetically express design ideas.
Brent is passionate about creating design that enhances the aesthetics and feelings spaces bring people, especially the spaces we call home. He believes that in design, constraints are a means of opportunity and direct inspiration.
In his free time, Brent is an adventure seeker and enjoys exploring the varied terrain of Colorado through mountain sports and camping. He is fortunate to be an avid traveler with trips spanning 21 countries; immersing himself in localities that offer unique perspectives and understandings, challenging his design thinking.
