At the start of each design project, we dig deep. We collect more information than seems possible in order to start the process with an informed initial impression. We look at the opportunity from every conceivable angle in order to unearth the key insights that will drive the work. Here on our web site, we invite you to do much the same thing. Read about our organization. Meet our people. Listen to what clients and colleagues have to say in our project Portfolio. See what we are capable of designing when we combine the BPA Perspective with our clients' needs.
If there is one thing above all else that we hope to convey, it’s that we are here to collaborate with you to help you reach the best possible solution for your project.
Bialosky + Partners is here to develop a vision and then give it voice. We do this by having the ability to think at 50,000 feet and also drill down to the smallest specification, never forfeiting the big picture for a critical detail.
We know how to harness the right talent for each job, working with a deep talent pool of experts in areas including planning, project management, interior design, renovation and historic restoration. We partner with artisans and architects, and work from two award-winning studios in New York City and Cleveland.
We meet each project with a smart and sustainable solution. For over six decades, it has been in our DNA to make certain our work will work and endure, and that we continue to earn the title of Architect with a capital A.
Decades of Design
As you look through the six decades we have been in business you will see how the times have shaped us and how we helped to shape the times.
At the age of 24, Jack A. Bialosky, Sr. returns from service as a Commissioned Naval Officer to start an architectural firm in Cleveland, Ohio. A graduate of the Yale School of Architecture, his first project is The Suburban Temple. His relationship as a Founder of the congregation and the Principal Architect of the site continues today with on-going expansions and renovations, and serves to underscore the firmís history. In fact, in a ceremony to celebrate his decades of stewardship, the temple was referred to as The House That Jack Built.
The firmís first collaboration is between Jack Bialosky and Victor Gruen, resulting in The May Companyís flagship suburban department store, featured on the cover of Architectural Record. This is a period of significant regional commercial projects including hotels, office buildings, and corporate and banking facilities.
Myron Manders joins Jack Bialosky as a partner. The firm's residential work expands, as does its geographic scope. The office moves to its current location of Shaker Square.

Jack A. Bialosky, Jr. returns to Cleveland having been an associate with Kallmann McKinnell and Wood in Boston. While there, Jack taught at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. Named a partner later in the decade, Jack initiates a period of expansion with the first projects in education and non-profit sectors.
William B. Bialosky establishes his design studio in Tribeca, New York (1989), bringing the total to three family members in the firm, all graduates of the Yale School of Architecture.
