“I commend you on your design efforts regarding Angle House, my prototype home in the Shenandoah Valley. Our project started as an idea in which I wanted to rethink the possibilities of a single-family home, utilize new technologies, and implement significant value engineering to reduce cost—a house with a functional and aesthetic value beyond what would normally be possible at its cost of construction. From our first conversation, your team at DBI embraced these challenges and were eager partners in thinking outside the box. While many other architects and firms might have hesitated on this project and its requirements, the team at DBI found creative ways to achieve our objectives. Today, our completed project is a striking home that stands out from others in the community. I would recommend your team at DBI to anyone considering a similar project.”

“With our office build-out project complete, I can wholeheartedly endorse the work of DBI and, in particular, our designer Michael Boyer. Our effort presented a somewhat challenging assignment. We were shifting the team from two floors to one for better cohesion and wanted more options for collaboration with flexible workspace. While we had little change in overall footprint, we wanted to move from a very hierarchical structure to one that was a bit more dynamic—and stay LEED Gold in the process. With Michael’s leadership and vision, that has been solidly achieved. The team—even those moving from offices to open workspace—are enjoying the outcome! The space works well for us, balancing polish and fun, and conveys the energy that we try to bring to our mission. Bottom line—would I hire DBI again? Absolutely!

“Michael Boyer and his staff of talented architects have been a pleasure to work with during the process of relocating two of our KLNB offices, which included the relocation of our company’s headquarters. Throughout the entire process, they managed to provide premier design services and impeccable construction coordination—all while keeping our budget constraints a top priority. Moving two major offices at the same time could have easily been a very stressful and unpleasant experience; however, with DBI Architects, we had the peace of mind all along that we were in great hands.”

Marc A. Menicks, President

“FCPS staff and visitors are delighted with the open, modern, and bright administrative headquarters. The DBI Team—Marcy Trepke, Kinga Wojtusiak, and Charlene Fowler—exceeded expectations, providing sincere collaborative leadership to achieve an inspiring environment that conveys a strong conviction of our brand, values, culture, and goals. DBI’s flexibility, creative thinking, and problem solving achieved a successful balance of project excellence on a tight budget and an even tighter schedule.”

We set out to build an innovative work environment that provides our employees a positive and energetic atmosphere, and DBI helped us achieve this goal.

"After a great experience working with DBI on the design and build-out of Mandiant’s offices in Reston, I knew we would reach a similar level of success on this project. Both Raj’s team and the folks from Alliance completely embraced our vision and were with us every step of the way. Since our opening in May 2015, we have been fortunate to receive countless rave responses for not only our beer and food, but also the space we have created, and we look forward to serving the community for many years to come."

“I want to thank DBI for designing such a great new home for StonebridgeCarras. We are thrilled to be here! When we started our process, we gave DBI a budget and a philosophy of our office and our development projects: quality and understated elegance. Your team certainly accomplished both quite well. Our staff and visitors to our space comment regularly on the ‘front door experience.’ We have a beautiful marble floor, unique wall stone, and the completely integrated ‘Stonebridge Cornerstone.’ The DBI team was professional and responsive, and a pleasure to work with. We look forward to future collaboration!”

“DBI Architects has designed a great, contemporary interior space for us with an impressive look that truly captures who we are and how far we’ve come: it says GeoEye is a growing high-tech company that’s here to stay. GeoEye’s new corporate headquarters provides a showcase for our innovative, exciting technology, and it has allowed us to improve service to our key customers in the Washington, DC area. The unique architectural details command your attention the moment you step off the elevators—from the imagery tiling in the floor to the exposed ceiling in the spacious lobby. The space has a sleek, clean, and energetic vibe, and we could not be happier with the results.”

Matt O’Connell, President and CEO

“DBI’s design of our new facility was innovative and far-reaching, from the color scheme to the conference room layouts. A day hasn’t gone by that the employees have not received accolades from visitors regarding the natural lighting, pleasing ambiance and space configuration. DBI delivered solid results to make this a showcase facility that has made coming to work a pleasure, as well as positively impacting the employees’ morale. Well done to the entire DBI Team of professionals!”

“With an ambitious time frame of only 4 weeks, DBI Architects was able to completely transform AOL’s company store from a dated, lackluster space into a cutting-edge, contemporary shop that highlights our new, dynamic brand. Elizabeth and Tracy were incredibly responsive and a pleasure to work with. I look forward to many more opportunities to work with them in the future.”

Al Nielsen, Director Facility Operations
AOL, Inc.

“Beth did such a terrific job on the design that only one minor modification was made to the original drawing sketched on the first day we met. And the project proceeded to sail on in that streamlined, positive, successful, and fun fashion. Sandy never tires and provides options upon options until client satisfaction is guaranteed. I am totally pleased with the final proposal, and impatient that it must be implemented in phases.”

Nancy Jenkins, Manager, Administration

"DBI achieved all of our goals with our recent corporate office project.

"We are pleased to provide a very positive reference for DBI Architects. In coordinating all the consultants, project manager Geoff Lewis provided professional, confident leadership from design through construction of the Fairway Executive Center building. I believe the exceptional architectural design is a large reason why we have received such a high level of interest in this speculative project.”
