If you've spent any time in the West you know it has an unmistakable allure. The rich landscapes, unsurpassed quality of life, and endless recreational opportunities make it a place worth celebrating. As an architect, I am committed to designing spaces that enrich the mountain west culture.

The Mountain West Architecture team thrives on crafting meaningful projects that contribute to enhancing the West. Our mission is to provide superior regional architecture and design services coupled with excellence in client satisfaction. Our experience and portfolio are strong, and we’ve worked on hundreds of projects throughout the United States. I’ve come to a point in my career where my objectives are about project quality rather than quantity.

We invite you to get to know us and allow us to partner with you to steer your vision into something special.

With warmest regards,

Having been in the business for a number of years, I have found this MWA chapter to be my most rewarding. I love our MWA family and the dedication they show to each client. At MWA, we produce solutions that meet the visionary needs of each organization. We have years of experience on how to most efficiently accomplish an organizations objectives. We provide informed design services that effectively merge architectural design excellence and budgetary compliance. Personally, when I am not in the office, I can be found spending time with my wife, Lita, supporting local non-profits, volunteering, admiring art, watching the Dallas Cowboys, keeping Remington, the Aussie, busy on hikes with Lita, skiing, away on fall hunts, fly fishing, or anything else!

Chad Hansen

Project Manager
"I love it when a plan comes together." -CJS Seriously, there is something very gratifying about watching a design come to life. I have spent many years on both sides of the fence, construction & architecture. Every project presents different challenges, but when you have the right team, the end result is something you can take pride in. One thing is for sure, my family gets tired of me saying, "Your old man worked on that one." Meanwhile...I'm patiently waiting on my first hole-in-one.

Kelly Brown

Interior Designer
When I was 10, I distinctly remember staying up late with my sister talking about how we would decorate our dream rooms once we no longer shared. This was the beginning of my love for all things artistic and creative. My skills for adapting beauty has taken many forms throughout my life. Whether it be drawing, photography, staging homes or tearing down walls, through design, we set the stage for peoples' lives. I'm a firm believer of the power of red lipstick and an 80's rock ballad and one day I will overcome my fear of cartwheels.

Patty Rose

Hey ya'll, I am Patty Rose, a mis-placed Texan living in Northern Utah with my husband Shane and our pups. Through our business I assist other businesses like Mountain West Architecture with important things like counting numbers, balancing the books, writing checks and paying employees. Besides crunching numbers my passions are training puppies, baking, hiking and yarn. To God be the glory for all He has done! John 8:12 - Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, "I am the Light of the world, the one who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life."

Miguel Gonzalez

Architecture Student Intern
When I'm asked what inspired me to pursue a career in Architecture I list two reasons: When living in El Salvador, my dad studied Architecture in his early college years, which reflected to his passion for drawing. I always admired his style and it became something I've tried mirroring in my life. Secondly, I'm a big college football fan and would play the associated video games with it, which allowed you to create your own team and stadium. As a twelve year old, I remember expanding my football team onto paper and designing their different stadiums and uniforms. Although they've discontinued to make those games, my desire to design and use my creativity within Architecture has only increased.
