Janek Bielski Architect is a full service architectural office, providing design, construction documentation and construction administration services. Mr. Bielski
personally meets with the firm’s clients during all the design phases, and oversees the construction process of most projects. The firm maintains long established working relationships with experienced engineering and design consultants located in Los Angeles.
A review of the work will show the range of the firm’s experience and capabilities.
The distinguishing design approach to most projects lies within the interaction between ‘the built’ and ‘the natural’ – both in terms of ecological sustainability and aesthetic perception. Additionally, wherever possible, double or multi–functioning spaces are designed to optimize the efficient use of all available space. These notions may determine a project’s concept, shape its particular forms, or prompt material and mechanical selections.
The firm’s residential, institutional and commercial projects have a wide breadth of scale, and include exquisitely detailed cabinetry, interiors, individual buildings, gardens, multi–use building complexes as well as large scale planning proposals. Many of these projects have been built, others are proposals or competitions, and still others explore ideas and concepts which may eventually find their ways to built projects.
