About Us Tim and Lauren Berneche are Berneche2 Architecture. We are a husband-wife practice specializing in both residential and commercial project types. We carefully listen to and analyze how you live, work, and play, we create design solutions tailored to your situation, and we collaborate with your team and yours to build it sustainably. We have each been practicing since 1990 with new construction; renovations; and additions. “We create the ‘box’ by thinking outside of it!” Tim is licensed in all states bordering Lake Michigan and also hold licenses in Washington, Nebraska, and New York. With his NCARB (National Council of Architect Registration Boards) certifications we can acquire licenses in most any state through reciprocity. We specialize in lake houses and the unique design challenges that come with designing along coastal areas. Our experience in multiple building and construction types allows us to interpolate technologies, philosophies, and solutions onto your project others might not consider. Our focus on seeking continuing education and investigating new technologies keeps us apprised on current construction and design trends.
