The Birdseye Architecture studio’s work represents a continued evaluation and refinement of scale through art & craft, firmly rooted in the building tradition of place.? Conceptual design strategies are derived through the iterative exploration of material, detail, sustainability, site exploration, program, budget and a strong commitment to intuitive design.

Through client feedback and discovery, the essential is uncovered and refined creating a distinct architectural language which draws from region, heritage and context.? The continued exploration of this design paradigm advances our work and grounds each project to a distinct time and place.? Our work is seen throughout Vermont, New England, New York and the United States.

Birdseye is the recipient of several international design awards and numerous American Institute of Architects honors, both locally and regionally.? Our work has been featured in international design magazines and books.

Birdseye is a participant in the 2018 Time Space Existence architectural exhibition, organized by the GAA Foundation and hosted by the European Cultural Centre as part of the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale.

Brian J. Mac FAIA leads a design team that includes architects,? Jeff McBride AIA, LEED AP BD+C,? Andrew Chardain AIA,? Jeff Kamuda? AIA, Peter Abiles AIA, Robin Blodgett AIA, Mike Casey AIA, and architectural designers Callie Anderson and Vanille Fricker.

Birdseye works in close collaboration with the interior design firm, Brooke Michelsen Design. Brooke has developed a keen understanding of creating interiors that reflect the continuum of the architectural aesthetic, the integration of client personality and the vision for designing and selecting elemental crafted furnishings. Her years of experience in custom residential interior design, from Los Angeles to New York City and back to Vermont has given her a depth of knowledge in materiality, spatial organization, and client interaction.
