The firm now known as Architectural Design West, P.C., (dba:
Design West Architects and shortened to Design West) had it's
beginnings in 1890 when a European architect named Karl Conrad
(KC) Schaub, moved to Logan, Utah with his parents and opened an
architectural design office. That historical fact makes the firm
the oldest continually operating architectural design firm west of
the Mississippi. Mr schaub established the firm upon the philosophy
“People support that which they help create”.
Mr. Schaub felt that successful architecture required the
interaction of talented architects and knowledgeable owners and
built his practice around owner involvement in the design process.
Design West continues the involved owner philosophy and believes
that superior designs are the result of quality service and hard
work. Generations of architects have built upon his principles of
quality architecture and quality service. Today, Design West is a
regional firm organized into two Utah offices in Logan and Salt
Lake City and two partnering Offices, Design West in Sacramento,
California and Design West in Meridian, Idaho. Based upon the
current superior and successful leadership at Design West, the
evolution of this 118+ year old legacy and culture will continue
for decades to come.
