What we do

Our mission is to transform nonprofit environments through design.
PBD is a volunteer network of design industry professionals. We renovate the interior environments of community service organizations and save tons of furniture from the landfill through creative reuse. Our work benefits thousands of under served Bay Area residents; at-risk youth, abused women, seniors, AIDS patients and homeless people, bringing them hope, inspiration and comfort.
