Bona Vita is a passionate and experienced team of architects and designers who create places and spaces that make people smarter, happier and healthier. We want architecture to help people live better lives, and that’s why we’ve chosen the name Bona Vita — it’s latin for “the Good Life.”
Buildings That Change Lives
The quality of a person’s experience is affected by the design of his or her environment. Bona Vita Architecture is intensely focused on making unique, environmentally-responsible, and human-driven design part of everyday life. We pour our hearts into every project because we know that each space has the potential to make its occupants happier and the surrounding community more prosperous.
When we’re not in the office designing structures and interiors, we’re giving our time and energy to our families, health and community. This family-focus directly translates to our expertise — our favorite projects are those that provide benefits for an entire community, such as YMCA’s, health care facilities, financial institutions, churches, schools, and community centers. We want our work to contribute to the kind of place we’d want to live — and our kids, and their kids, and so on.
At Bona Vita, you can skip the convoluted corporate heirarchy common at larger firms. Every client and every project gets personal attention by our founders — Tom and Melissa — and company. Down to earth folks, top quality work.
