Our atelier of designers creates architecture and interiors that enhance the relationship of people to the built environment and provide a meaningful, functional, fulfilling context for everyday life.
We believe that architecture is the alchemy of inspiration, site, materials, vision and form, and that a symbiosis between circumstance and desire is essential to original and compelling spaces. A rich set of conditions, agendas and real-life constraints makes this an artful process, and engenders innovative thinking and great design.
The collaborative nature of our studio enhances the design process and nourishes meaningful connections with our clients and the craftsmen who build our work. We thrive when working with clients who have interesting and demanding programs, a passion for what will happen in their space, and ideas to contribute—providing opportunities to deepen the design language as we guide each project’s development.
Boor Bridges Architecture works on a diverse range of projects including restaurants, community spaces, private residences and offices. We believe it is our professional obligation to be environmentally intelligent and cognizant of our role relative to the world of consumption, bringing a sustainable perspective and proficiency in energy-efficient building systems to every project.

Anand approaches architecture from a strong conceptual and artful point of view. He has the invaluable ability to quickly distill and interpret a clear, strong aesthetic vision from a client’s program, and to create a sense of discovery through design. Through gorgeous hand sketches, architectural drawings and diagrammatic design representations, he instinctively knows the best way to communicate design information and concepts so that his clients and project teams find purpose and direction without diverting from the project goals.
Approaching architecture as an art practice was intentional from the start of Anand’s path, moving to San Francisco at a young age and committing to architectural education within an art school so that he would be steeped in that frame of mind. He brings this artistic perspective to his design work on highly crafted interiors of all project types, as well as to the studio’s internal process of researching and assembling inspiration at the inception of each project.
Anand manages Boor Bridges’ external communications, marketing and studio events, represents the firm in the community, and is a leader of the firm’s culture—bringing his humor to daily work-life and staff activities. An engaged urban dweller and observer, his experience of city life is akin to his design explorations—seeking to understand the parts leads to a holistic understanding of how environments can do better for the people they serve.
