Eric Rosenberg was educated at The Lawrenceville School; Colgate University, where he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a second major in Mathematics; and North Carolina State University, where he received a Master of Architecture. He spent seven years working in St. Louis and New York firms including: Team Four, a multidisciplinary Urban Design & Planning firm; and the offices of Robert Boland, David Helpern, and Peter Marino; before starting his own firm in 1983. The firm grew steadily in size and in the scope of its projects. With an experienced and supporting staff, Eric has been able to pursue real estate projects; developing, contracting, and operating them personally. Work in the New York area with foreign clients and architects, and international projects eventually led to work in the Turks & Caicos and the subsequent creation of BDA.
Michele Kolb's professional experience includes working for some of the most prestigious design firms in the USA and Switzerland: George Nelson & Associates; Pentagram Design; Stieger Partners; Gwathmey Siegel and Associates; and Vignelli Associates, where she was Vice President of Interior Design for 7 years. Educated at Parsons School of Design and Columbia University, Michele's visual sense is both acute and versatile. Her aesthetic includes traditional as well as clean, contemporary design. A registered architect, Michele became a partner in Rosenberg Kolb Architects in 1987. Prior experience at these well known firms, each multidisciplinary in their approach to design, provided the base for her to direct architecture, interior design, signage, and graphic design projects as a principal at Rosenberg Kolb and BDA; and to develop the product line for Belongings, an associated interior design showroom and retail store.
