Mark Baumhover
Senior Project Architect

Joined BWBR in 1999

Mark has a passion for helping people by designing spaces that truly enhance the way people work and live their lives. Mark provides hands-on involvement in total project design and documentation, as well as design and technical leadership to the project team.

“The most indelible lesson I learned in school still guides me today: that architecture is for living…the built environment is the shell, the stage, the place for human events to happen, and be remembered. Style and texture add depth and texture to a project, but design is for living. This approach applies to big, fancy projects as well as little, simple ones — projects around our old house, our son’s backyard fort, pitching camp in the Boundary Waters. There is no better feeling than seeing life lived better, in large or small ways, because a team of people got together and decided to make things better.”
