Why You Should

Don’t just take our word for it



Because space and brand are so integrated, why would you hire two separate firms to provide these services? Our specialty is to help businesses plan and execute their brand through all dimensions from the start.

Our philosophy is simple: Good design doesn’t follow trends, it transcends. It also is good for the bottom line. With that in mind we create with for the long-term by using materials that last and save energy. It means design that will continue to be relevant and inspirational 20, 50, and100 years from now.

We…could not be more pleased with all aspects of their work.


I have had the pleasure to work with Steve Lane on many projects, most recently the completion of our $ 5 million addition of a 20- bed detox and health center along with a multi-purpose dining pavilion.

BAS1S’s relationship with Harmony has included preparation of a Master Plan proposal, architectural design of our new buildings and several smaller projects on our campus, along with project oversight on behalf of Harmony on this recently completed project.

We, at Harmony, could not be more pleased with all aspects of their work. Their architectural skills and eye for design have contributed to a finished project that is far beyond our expectations. We completed the project on time and within budget, primarily due to his expertise.

BAS1S truly “gets us”, our Mission and our desired outcomes.


For nearly 20 years I have worked…with countless graphic designers and marketing experts. I have never worked with such ease and performance as I do now that BAS1S is our professional partner. BAS1S always listens, always cares and always delivers. They truly “get us”, our Mission and our desired outcomes.

Thanks to BAS1S we have realized our dream and have created a successful brewery and taproom.


We were referred to Steve Lane when we started working on restoring a 1922 grain elevator to be used as our brewery and taproom. Steve was very knowledgeable in the various code requirements and genuinely cared about our project. We described our vision and he helped us turn it into a reality. He was always available to help us in our time of need and produced requests in a timely manner. Steve referred us to his wife, Amy, when he heard we were looking for assistance in designing a website. We met with Amy, shared our story and our business concept, before long she had captured a visual representation of our business. We were so impressed that we decided to hire Amy to design our logo, website, merchandise, and assist in all aspects of our marketing efforts. Thanks to BAS1S we have realized our dream and have created a successful brewery and taproom.

Within a few weeks, you captured us!


(The)…brochure that BAS1S developed for NCRW’s endowment campaign… is upbeat, inviting, dynamic, and clear – characteristics many of us were trying to accomplish for several months. And within a few weeks, you captured us!

The project was all about us, our needs and ideas and not him.


We worked with Steve Lane over several years as we planned our retirement home in Colorado. He was patient, knowledgeable, and professional in a very relaxed way. The project was all about us, our needs and ideas and not him. He offered many ideas and solutions to achieve our goals for our home. His knowledge of materials and attention to details was always appreciated. By visiting our building site he was able to really know the building situation/site/etc. He also had experience working with our builder, which made that a great team to get the project completed even ahead of schedule. One huge objective was a house plan that would capture our lot’s amazing mountain views. We could not be more pleased with our home and are enjoying the views to the max!

BAS1S created the home around our hopes & dreams.


We used Basis Architecture to design our retirement home. Steve Lane and his staff did a magnificent job of translating our dreams into a ~5000 sq. ft., 3 bedroom home. Basis hosted weekly meeting where we jointly arrived at the final floor plan. Basis then created the home around our hopes and dreams. The home is solid structurally and mechanically while visually fascinating and appropriate to the property. We can’t wait for the construction to be completed so we can begin our life in this incredible dwelling.
