BITNAR ARCHITECTS was established in New York in 1990. Since that time, the firm has been involved in all phases of the architecture field, from the earliest stages of programming and schematic design through construction, with projects in architectural design, urban planning and interior design.
BITNAR ARCHITECTS offers service in a variety of categories: housing (single family), housing (multi-family), industrial, institutional, banks/financial, educational, health care/medical, hotel/hospitality, libraries, commercial/office, recreational, religious facilities, retail, sporting/athletic, historic preservation and restoration, interior design and urban planning.
BITNAR ARCHITECTS has won awards and recognition for both contemporary designs and preservation, most notably, an AIA Pacific Region Citation Award and AIA Montana Chapter Merit Award for the Avis Car Rental facility, and the AIA Montana Chapter Merit Award for the M&I Residence. The Avis building was also featured in the New York Times Style Magazine. In addition, the Bridger Apartments complex was awarded a Community Beautification Award, and two historic residences in Bozeman received the Award for Excellence in Residential Renovation from the Bozeman Historic Preservation Advisory Board.
BITNAR ARCHITECTS considers architecture to be the art of successfully synthesizing form to meet exacting requirements. Design excellence can be achieved within the boundaries of economics and pragmatic, functional realities. It is the primary goal of Bitnar Architects in all its projects to create a partnership with its clients, and perform the service which results in design excellence. Principal Thomas Bitnar's work illustrates his typological versatility and his ability to elevate the standards of architectural design through a blend of architecture traditions, a distinctly modernist approach, and sustainability. Bitnar Architects has been a member of the U.S. Green Building Council since 2006.
