“Building with Sacred Geometry bridges the gap between the physical world we live in and the spiritual world we seek.” – T.R. Bartholomew

The purpose of architecture is to act as our second skin, to nourish our spirit as does nature.

At Bartholomew Architect, we believe this can only be accomplished by designing living spaces with the same geometry found in nature and the universe. Known as Sacred Geometry, this practice is the guiding design principal which allows us to create spaces that advance consciousness to Unity with nature and our universe.
