Mr. Gille received his Masters of Architecture degree in 1982 from Tulane University where recognition for his excellence in design afforded him the opportunity to augment his formal education. As the recipient of the Russo + Sonder Internship Award, he was allowed to work and study in New York City.
In addition, his studies took him to the San Francisco Art Institute, where he participated in the Center for Architecture & Urban Studies with several nationally recognized architects including Nathaniel Owings and Charles Moore. This broad educational background has enhanced Mr. Gille’s ability to assimilate complex design programs and assemble them into creative building solutions. In addition to the benefits of his formal education, Mr. Gille also places a great emphasis on the variety of experiences he has received as a design professional. He has been on the design team for complex, multi-phase commercial projects but equally enjoys working on the scale of smaller commercial and residential projects in New Orleans and across the Gulf South. In 1987 he founded Brian Gille Architects and, over the years, has been commissioned to prepare designs for both new and renovated residences, including many historical restorations. Mr. Gille’s body of work has gained international recognition and now affords him the opportunity to do work in the Muskoka Lake and Georgian Bay regions of Ontario, Canada. His association with award-winning architects across the country has brought to Brian Gille Architects the importance of relating a structure to it’s surroundings.
Mr. Gille is a registered architect in the State of Louisiana and the Province of Ontario, Canada, a member of the American Institute of Architects (A.I.A.), the Ontario Architects Association (O.A.A.) and is certified by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB).
