Why Coastal Design from Bohl Architects?

Choosing the right architecture firm for your waterfront home is a significant decision. At Bohl Architects, we bring a unique blend of architectural exploration, biophilic design, and a commitment to creating legacy houses that stand the test of time.

Our approach is deeply rooted in understanding who you are, ensuring that the home does not just align with our design principles but becomes a true reflection of you.

Our team brings a unique lens to waterfront architecture, particularly in the Chesapeake Bay, Hudson Valley, and Eastern Shore of Maryland. Here, our designs don’t just sit on the landscape; they become a part of it.

Tailored Floor Plans for Every Lifestyle

Whether you’re envisioning an expansive living room with a water view or a peaceful master suite that captures the coastal feeling, we design the floor plan to meet your needs and wants. We collaborate with you to design a home that fits your style, but no matter the waterfront project it’s our effort to optimize the view.

A Seamless Blend of Indoor and Outdoor Spaces

Our designs extend to create a harmonious flow between indoor and outdoor spaces. Large windows and natural materials are key home features that allow you to enjoy the water surroundings from the comfort of your house.

Long-Term Real Estate Value

Investing in a coastal home isn’t just about immediate gratification; it’s a long-term real estate decision. Our use of sustainable, natural elements not only contributes to a unique coastal style but also adds enduring value to your property. Imagine a beach home where every room, from the master suite to the dining room, is designed to elevate your everyday living and long-term investment.

Coastal Design and Build Case Studies

At Bohl Architects, our years of experience ensure that every design is an architectural feat and a symbiosis of human dwelling and the living ecosystem. Imagine spaces that work with your daily routine, all crafted with a precise understanding of both your personal aspirations and nature’s blueprint.

Bembe Beach: This home is adjacent to the Chesapeake Bay flood plain. We designed the first floor in solid concrete and placed it 2 feet above the highest flood height requirement. The foundation is designed to withstand flooding and allow for easy “clean-up” after a high-water event. Rather than a sheer, flat wall, we sculpted the volumes facing the bay to create complexity. The house has volumetric depth, so each room has a different orientation to the horizon, giving the interior a rich relationship to the view.

It’s eco-friendly while enhancing your personal well-being.
