Who We Are
The Studio W Architects team is a collaborative network of creative professionals. With three offices across California, we operate as ONE TEAM—one studio and one profit center-with shared resources and leadership to ensure the support and success of our projects.
As a mid-size practice, we are able to enjoy the intimacy of a small, boutique firm, while also being able to realize the resources, career mobility and profitability of a large firm. We work on significant projects that allow for design opportunity, complex problem solving and personal growth potential.
The company has been recognized for consecutive years, since 2017 to present, by both the Sacramento Business Journal and Silicon Valley Business Journal as one of the Top 50 Fastest Growing Private Companies in acknowledgement of our continued growth and financial success. We are members of PSMJ’s 2020 Circle of Excellence with an esteemed group of 65 peers who are recognized for performing in the top 20th percentile based on outstanding operational, financial, marketing and human resources metrics. We were also honored as a Best Place To Work by the Sacramento Business Journal, an accolade which is based on the direct input of our team members, our culture of staff engagement and our employee perks. Both our Sacramento and San Jose studios are consistently ranked as one of the Top 25 Architectural Firms in the respective regions.
