Schmidt Associates, an architectural and engineering firm, was born on the fourth of July. Perhaps that’s why we have always nurtured a spirit of independence, originality, and wonder at what design can achieve in our world.

July of 1976, Wayne Schmidt decided to go it alone and set up an architecture practice that would be different. It would be different because it put the needs and aspirations of its clients first and center stage. It would be different because it valued every member of its growing professional team as individuals and as creators. And it would be different because it truly cared about the impact of its work on people and the world they live in.

Four decades later, we are proud that we remain different in all the regards that matter to us, to our clients, and to our community. We describe the way we work as “servant leadership”. That means we place our skills, our experience and our talents at the disposal of our clients. We help them, as their guides, to find and follow their path to the outcomes they want. We do not force them down routes that suit our purposes.

We sum up our unique approach in three phrases, distilled from everything our clients have told us across 40 years of defining, developing, and delivering good design. They say that Schmidt Associates displays Better Foresight, Better Insight, and that we are Better On-site.
