Michael Labbé, AIA

Principal + Director of Planning & Design

Michael is a founding Principal of Studio BLS. His work represents a comprehensive blend of the Architecture and Interior Design professions and it grounds Studio BLS as a multidiscipline design firm. With experience rooted in a broad base of both luxury residential design and technically challenging large scale commercial projects, Michael brings to each project not only his passion for form, proportion, light and materials but the technical knowledge to develop any design challenge with the utmost attention to detail and technical execution.

Michael’s design education was steeped in the Bauhaus philosophy of Art For Living and early on he developed a passion for merging experiential architecture with interior design elements and functional design products for everyday living.
“I view architecture and interior design as an intellectual and emotional process; sculpting environments for the experience and luxury of everyday life.”

Prior to founding Studio BLS, Michael enjoyed a successful career as Director of Design and Project Manager on projects ranging from single family luxury New York City residences to residential towers and expansive and technically complex aviation terminals.
“Design is comprehensive, and attention to detail and proportion is a key part of every project regardless of scale or scope. Ultimately we create environments for people.”
