Website: http://www.brininstool-lynch.com

For more than 30 years, Brininstool + Lynch has produced work defined by elegance, clarity and rigor. Spanning every scale and scope, the firm’s 250+ projects are the result of a considered investigation into the social and environmental context, as well as a careful understanding of the client’s ambitions. From that base, new potentials and unexpected solutions are rigorously explored and refined. Always conscious of the natural, financial and temporal resources required to produce any building, Brininstool + Lynch seeks creative efficiencies, with the goal of making the most with the least. At the macro level, this manifests as projects that directly address their place in the world – architecturally, socially, and environmentally. At the level of detail, these same projects blend long-lasting craft with responsible material choices. The finely detailed and culturally rich projects that Brininstool + Lynch produce represent the essence of the shared ideals of the client and the firm, and positively affect our collective communities.

These have been calculated based on known floor counts for the building, then extrapolated through analyzing typically hundreds of buildings of the same function on this database that do have confirmed heights. The user should be aware that non-standard building features, such as significant spires or raised entrances / podiums, may affect the accuracy of these estimations.
