Baker Design Group takes an enlightened approach to design, offering clients a truly bespoke architectural experience. We offer design leadership to diverse, forward-thinking clients, levering an ever-restless creativity and multi-layered design thinking to develop environments that delight and fascinate people.
BDG provides comprehensive services that bridge architecture, technology design, interior design, branding, industrial design, exhibit design and planning. While our thinking is grand, our designs are intimate. Spaces have function and meaning. Advanced technology is intrinsic throughout, but transparent in every way. Obstacles are removed and deep connections are formed.
At the heart of our practice is a driving passion and joy for elegant problem solving, and we embrace unique and demanding projects. Your project can set a new benchmark for excellence in your industry. But the final product will be something that you inhabit. This is why we firmly believe in supporting your goals, ambitions and vision, not ours.
Through defining architectural forms, interior design finishes and furnishings, multimedia and graphics, BDG infuses spaces with unique brand personality. The resulting design engages the senses and tells a story that celebrates your organization's unique journey. At the same time, it supports and nurtures a highly functioning environment for today, while accommodating technologies and working styles as they advance well into the future.
BDG is a Boston-based firm that practices internationally, working with a global network of designers and engineers who support the needs of our multinational clients. We have successfully completed various type projects and delighted clients in the United States and 12 other countries around the world.
