LEED AP, Architect, Principal of Building Technology
Since 1992, Sam Nishek has brought his passion for sustainable architecture combined with practical construction detailing to the studio’s diverse variety of projects. He earned his Bachelor’s Degree, Cum Laude in Architecture from the University of Idaho in 1991.
Sam grew up in Tanzania with parents teaching appropriate technology to remote villages. This early experience of making the most with the least has shaped Sam’s sense of simplicity and economy in design. He brings this rigor to the BSA team as manager of some of BSA’s most complex undertakings, while also serving as the technical plan checker for almost every project.
Self-titled Eco-Boy, he is an experienced vegetable gardener, avid recumbent bike commuter, mountain biker and tandem rider…and, he loves almost any beer.
