about the firm

Synthesizing a distinctive retail image is not achieved through imitation and rules of thumb. Black River Architect believes that specialty retail presents a unique combination of challenges: alloying the delight of architecture with the pragmatism of business. To this end, our retail projects are based on a thorough understanding of the specifics of the merchandise and the market, informed by thoughtful analysis and refined by insights gleaned from years of retail design experience.

Whether we are designing a store for a national park, a science museum or a children’s retailer, Black River Architects’ goal is to create a store that is distinctive, compelling and profitable.
