Bio:

Working in offices in Arizona, Texas and Nebraska before founding the Omaha-based architecture and multidisciplinary design firm, B2Lab, has afforded Brad Brooks a broad level of experience on a wide range of project types from hospitality to commercial to residential and beyond. His approach is valued in delivering clear ideas, and his character traits blend approachable, dependable and sincere design. He is motivated by craft and investigating the relationship between buildings and landscape. Brooks is integrally involved in every phase of his firm’s design process from programming through construction administration. He is involved in establishing the design direction working with staff and clients on resolving interpretative issues to ensure meaningful outcomes that combine the union of form, function and material exploration.

His collaborations reveal the potential in every project and juxtapose complex client motives and programs with clear expression and architectural purpose. He has a skill for communicating obstacles, and solutions in a language clients understand.

Having worked in the construction industry for years provides a framework for early design decisions to interface efficiently with construction and materials applications. Brooks’s attention to how design integrates with construction technology and fabrication allows for the maximized potential of the project realization.
