Overview

After working together in Chicago, Brad Lynch and David Brininstool established Brininstool + Lynch in 1989. Early commissions included small renovation projects, but now the firm is just as likely to take on new construction of high-rise buildings. Projects range from residences to art museums, in locations throughout North America. Although the firm's projects are diverse in type, they reflect a similar approach, resolving specific program requirements with a consistent focus on design. The architects address all work -- regardless of cost or project type -- through an aesthetic intent that establishes a modern clarity while maintaining a personal point of view.

In all of its projects, the firm seeks to create a richness of individual space. The architects clearly define the intended function of a place, creating a sense of anticipation through the manipulation of natural and artificial light, and the careful detailing of materials. Their work recognizes the importance of site and vernacular influences, without succumbing to them. Materials that evoke stability and comfort, as well as maintain affordability and compability with technology and use, strengthen every project. Ultimately, the design process is guided by the idea that a work of architecture should be, above all, a place of inspiration.

The 15 professionals who make up Brininstool + Lynch operate within a studio-like structure that fosters an open atmosphere and a thorough exchange of ideas. Information, data, and experience from all of the firm's projects are shared on a continual basis to enhance the quality of the work.

In 2001, Brininstool + Lynch received four Design Excellence Awards from the Chicago chapter of the American Institute of Architects. The Yamamoto Residence in McCordsville, Indiana, and Squark in Chicago each earned two: one in the distinguished building awards category, and a second in the interior architecture category.
