CBT Architects

About CBT Architects

CBT is a 49-year old firm working nationally and internationally on projects that range from urban district master planning to large-scale mixed-use developments, multi-family residential, hospitality interiors, corporate workplace, civic and academic projects. From offices in Boston and Saudi Arabia, we have approximately 220 architects, urban planners, interior designers and support personnel working together to deliver unique solutions that respond directly to our clients' needs. Clients come to us for our real estate savvy, our ability to provide strategic design services in a broad number of project types and styles, and our skill in blending high quality planning and architecture with practical goals of building performance, budget and schedule.

Our work benefits from a holistic approach that considers the scope of a project in its broadest definition from issues of urban design to ergonomic detail to sensory experience. In over 40 years of practice, CBT has played an important role in a broad range of projects in diverse settings. It is our belief that for each of our projects to come to life and continue to thrive, they must support the lifestyles and activities of the people who live, work and play there. Our efforts focus on the creation and rejuvenation of downtowns, waterfronts, campuses and neighborhoods. We have a particular expertise in the integration of modern architecture with historic structures and context.

Our design philosophy drives a process that values thoughtful collaboration. Understanding the many different constituencies impacted by a new project, we help gain support and achieving consensus early on by working closely with our clients, consultants, approving agencies, and the communities themselves. Our design sensibility, strategic consensus-building approach, and excellent communication methodology consistently help our clients achieve their goals and exceed their expectations. Ultimately, what makes CBT special is its people and a culture that promotes individual expression within a strong set of shared values. The diversity of architectural expression in CBT's work is a testament to its ability to express the forms driven by each individual commission in an ever-evolving built environment.

“Working on a project to help improve a companies website made me feel like I was finally at a place in my education and experience where I could give my opinion on things and they would be taken seriously and applied to a real-life website! I liked feeling like every edit I made was making a difference, and I loved working in an office with so many professional, creative, dedicated individuals. ”
