For over 30 years, CBA Partnership Architects has implemented into practice our belief that the summation of our everyday buildings that we work, live and play in all combine to contribute a vital role in our quality of life.  Much more so than the high profile projects which we occasionally visit.  Accordingly, our portfolio of work largely focuses on producing creative and dynamic environments for both living and work, whether it be for new construction or the repositioning of older buildings for a new generation.
