If we have not met, my name is Brittain Brewer. I am bbrewerdesign. My site is simple. The sketches are by me, with the exception of the four in the upper left-hand corner, those are Sketchup drawings of the 'Alleyhouse' by my good friend and sometimes collaborator Cole Cabler. The drawings represent a very small example of my work. If you have been to the Portland airport, you have seen my carts (upper right-hand sketch). If you have been to the Portland State Bookstore, you have been in one of the stores I have designed (lower right-hand sketch). If you have been to NIKETOWN in San Francisco you have been in another store I have designed. If you have been down NE Clackamas / NE Halsey alley in northeast Portland between NE 24th and NE 26th, you will have seen the yellow, white and red "Alleyhouse" on the south side, an ADU I designed for wonderful clients who remain good friends and neighbors. If you want to see more, please contact me.
So, those are some sketches and some projects, but I do more than draw. I am trained as an architect. While I am not an "Architect" in the State of Oregon (I am in the State of Penssylvania, if that does anything for you), I work mostly in the worlds of architecture, planning and interior design as a designer, project manager and consultant. I do not specialize in any type of project, but I have experience with a wide variety of project types and have had different roles on many projects. If there is a specialty it is in "good work". I am a polite, skilled, creative and cooperative collaborator. I prize relationships over pretty pictures, but I like pretty pictures too. I work with residential, retail, commerical, and institutional clients. In addition I collaborate and consult with and for other Architectural, Planning, Interior Design, Engineering and Construction professionals.
Since 1978, I have had a framed quote by the architect Le Corbusier on my desk, from an article he wrote for Focus magazine in 1938 titled, "If I Had to Teach You Architecture". It reads, "Architecture is organization. You are an organizer, not a drawing board artist."
bbrewerdesign, or Brewer Design, as my business is known by my banker, has been located in Portland since 1996. If you believe I might be able to add value to your efforts or enterprise, please contact me. I would love to hear from you. It is very possible that after a short conversation I can put my experience to work for you.
If you wish to see more examples of my work, or speak with some who know me or with whom I have worked, contact me. I will be happy to hear from you, to show you more of my work, and introduce you to former and current clients and collaborators.
Check back every now and then. I might add some more pretty pictures.
