1929 - 2013. It is with a heavy heart we said goodbye to a firm founder and dear friend, Henrik Bull last week. Henrik H. Bull died on December 3, 2013 at his home in Berkeley after battling illness. He was a formidable and talented architect, a mentor and inspiration to many. Although officially retired from the firm for the last 10 years, Henrik was a regular in the office, offering his consultation and expertise, reminding us that sometimes the simplest solution is often the best. His snow-country design expertise and prescribed solutions to ice and snow continue to mark important firm hallmarks. We will miss him and his work will continue to inspire the firm, other architects and building users for generations to come. BSA's full memorial statement.

Are you developing your brand by providing a seemless guest experience, top of the mountain to the bottom, 24/7 and four seasons?
