Following initial studies at Tulane University, Brian L. Freese continued his education at the University of Oklahoma, receiving a Bachelor of Architecture degree in 1984. Freese established Freese Architecture in 1994, following over 12 years of professional tenure with area firms. As principal, Freese quickly gained recognition for the depth and breadth of his design skills, innovative thinking, and for his ability to turn an understanding of client needs into beautiful, lasting and livable designs.
Freese has developed over three decades of particular experience in unique custom single-family and multifamily residences, ecclesiastical, educational and institutional buildings, as well as facilities master planning, space planning, interior architecture, corporate interiors, and land development. In addition, Freese has pursued a focused research on energy efficient and environmentally sustainable design techniques, as well as having attended and received certificates for numerous LEED based seminars for practical and effective implementation of environmentally responsible architectural design solutions. These focused efforts follow Freese’s belief that architects have a fundamental responsibility to design homes and buildings that maximize efficiency, and minimize both operational costs and unnecessary stress on the planet. As a result, Freese Architecture has proven success in implementing various energy efficient and environmentally sustainable design techniques into many completed projects.
Freese designs all projects, manages the architectural detailing and construction documents production, and oversees the general operations of the firm. He is a member of the American institute of Architects, and is licensed in the state of Oklahoma.
