Firm Profile

Brian Gille Architects, Ltd. is an architectural firm born in New Orleans, Louisiana. We began as Horchoff & Gille Architects in 1987 in uptown New Orleans and later became Brian Gille Architects, Ltd in 1997. Our office is now located in historic downtown New Orleans.

While much of our focus over the years has been centered around life in New Orleans and Louisiana, the work has spread to the Gulf Coast, the Carolinas and, more recently, the Muskokas, a lake region north of Toronto, Ontario Canada. Our body of work has focused mainly on single-family residential and private-sector commercial work. Our projects in and around New Orleans have received awards from the Historic District Landmarks Commission, the Vieux Carre Commission and the Division of Historic Preservation. In addition to our active practice in New Orleans and along the Gulf South, the firm has now become registered in the Province of Ontario, Canada. As an internationally-recognized firm, we have work underway on several new cottages, guest houses and boathouses designed to fit the magnificent landscape of the Muskoka Lakes and Georgian Bay, Ontario.

At Brian Gille Architects, Ltd., we take pride in aligning with a network of owners and professionals who recognize the importance of thoughtful design and its impact on our lives. We first listen and take cues from programmatic elements that each of our clients bring to the table. We then mold these elements together into the living spaces that our clients get to enjoy every day. This notion of creating the built environment is very powerful and not something our firm takes lightly.

Our in-house competencies include refined architectural design, project management, real-time cost estimating, contractor selection assistance and integrated construction administration. We also consult with leading interior designers to ensure the final finishing touches create spaces that are unique and comfortable for our clients and their guests.
