Partnerships: Working with Sasha Bruce Youthwork and SBK Architecture

Bethesda Systems has been able to continue to offer its expertise in residential and commercial integration with its collaboration with SBK Partnership.

SBK Partnership, LLC is a small boutique architectural firm newly located in Bethesda, MD. John Stovall, Robert Black, and Alexis Krug formed the partnership in order to continue the more than 40 years of prior architectural practice in the metropolitan Washington area. In that time, they have been responsible for the design of both new and renovated residential, multi-family residential, commercial, institutional and transportation facilities.

Recently, SBK has been partnering up with Bethesda Systems to offer support on design aspects of their integration projects. SBK has assisted Bethesda Systems in theater design, sight lines, room shape, acoustics, sound isolation, furniture placement, direct and indirect lighting, raised ceilings, and other architectural treatments.

Bethesda Systems has assisted with SBK projects as well.

In December 2011, Bethesda Systems teamed up with SBK in order to provide media upgrades to the Sasha Bruce Youthwork’s recent building acquisition.

Sasha Bruce Youthwork is a youth service provider in Washington, D.C. Their mission is to improve the lives of runaway, homeless, abused, and neglected and at-risk youth and their families throughout the Washington area.

While SBK worked on the design, repair, and renovation of SBY’s building on 5032 D Street SE, Bethesda Systems was happy to lend a hand to assemble the wiring for two wall-mounted monitors in the house.

Stovall and his partners look forward to continuing a relationship with Bethesda Systems.

“Our relationship is still evolving,” said Stovall. “We’re very interested in collaborating with Bethesda Systems in order to integrate media room and multi-purpose room design into our projects as well.”
