About AWH Architects

 

Since 2011, AWH Architects has taken on a wide range of architectural projects from our office in the Whittier neighborhood of Minneapolis. The unifying threads between each are client-specific solutions and the focus on our 5 core values: Energy, Water, Reuse, Social Equity, and Pragmatism. 

 

AWH has become known as a pillar in the local architecture world for our work on adaptive reuse and historic properties. We also work on all types of commercial properties, multi-family developments, educational facilities, and single-family residential homes.

 

At AWH, we believe that the design of our physical spaces affects the way we interact with one another as humans. Design can shift our mindset and create spaces of safety, comfort, and joy. Because of our beliefs, we aim to design equitable and accessible spaces by integrating multiple narratives through the diverse voices and skill sets that we bring to the table. 

 

Our team is small and independent. We listen well. We strive to be honest and accountable to our clients and our values. We work individually and collaboratively. We are dynamic, interesting, and kind. We believe we have created a great place to work.
