We collaborate with our clients, consultants and colleagues.


We advocate for the public, our clients, and the profession of Architecture.


We research in support of design. We believe that the best designs are discovered.


We educate our clients, the community, our profession, …and ourselves.


We make sustainability an integral a part of our practice.

We are always looking for new talent.

Bartos Architecture provides a challenging environment for our members. We expect all staff to be self motivated and interested in all aspects of the profession. If you are interested in only designing pictures of buildings, this isn’t the place for you. If you are interested in participating in the design process and also enjoy all other aspects of the profession, we would love to meet you.

If you are excited about working in a supportive and enthusiastic environment dedicated to collaborative efforts and real sustainable solutions, please feel free to call us or send your resume to Mark Bartos at mb@bartosarchitecture.com
