DBVW's commitment to the community began with our very first project, creating homes, and continues to be the core of our philosophy. We believe that the built environment plays a crucial role in shaping vibrant and inclusive communities. With a passion for sustainable design and a keen understanding of the local context, we strive to create spaces that not only enhance aesthetic appeal but also contribute positively to the well-being of the community. We are dedicated to engaging with communities, understanding client’s needs, and integrating their aspirations into our projects. Through thoughtful and collaborative design, we aim to foster a sense of belonging and elevate the quality of life in the communities we serve, live, and work in.

" The Nonviolence Institute

This historic adaptive reuse of the former St. Michael’s Rectory provides a new headquarters for ISPN. The project, which serves as a community center for street workers addressing the problems of gang violence, has youth-oriented drop in centers, office space, and a victim support center. This major rehabilitation of the 14,000 sf building interior includes new mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems, a new elevator, and exterior restoration and site improvements."
