F rom New York City to the Hamptons to Palm Beach to Nashville, Brian O’Keefe Architect is a versatile and visionary designer creating dream residences that elevate and enhance each client’s lifestyle. Among noted interior designers, BOKA is something of a bestkept secret – a trusted NYC architecture firm that can bring the architectural side of their designs to life.
Brian O'Keefe Architect, or BOKA, was established in 1993 with an initial focus on traditional highend residential architecture. Since then, the firm's original concentration on traditional architectural styles has expanded to include modern and contemporary architecture styles. Their work draws upon the client's desired aesthetic, traditions of that style and reinterpreting them to create a project that is well suited to its location and context, and fits well with the client's lifestyle and today's needs.
BOKA also works as an architectural consultant for several New York and Los Angeles based interior designers including a long standing collaboration with Marjorie Shushan which has resulted in many beautiful projects over the years, and most recently a 34,000 square foot Villa on Indian Creek Island, Florida which was showcased in Architectural Digest.
Firm Principal Brian O'Keefe received his architectural degree from Mississippi State University in 1988 and went on to work for renowned architects Ken Tate, Peter Marino, and Alexander Gorlin before establishing his own eponymous New York City architecture studio.
Working nationally, BOKA has also created houses in Greenwich, CT, Palm Beach, FL, Nashville, TN, and Birmingham, AL. Currently, the firm is working on projects in New York City and the Hamptons. BOKA has been published several times in Architectural Digest as well as Veranda, Elle Décor and Palm Beach Cottages & Gardens.
