Design West Founder, K.C. Schaub

ESTABLISHED IN 1892, OUR LEGACY CONTINUES.

Design West Architects is the oldest continuously operating architecture firm West of the Mississippi. For 125 years, our designers have shaped the built environment throughout the Western United States.

The firm was founded in 1892 by K.C. Schaub, a European trained architect, who immigrated to the United States and established his office in Logan, Utah. Several generations of architects have since built upon the foundation which he laid, introducing new ideas and fresh talent into the company for generations.

Our heritage connects us and instills a sense of pride and responsibility to continue this amazing legacy. We continue to design the West with sensitivity, quality service and integrity.

OUR HIGHLY TALENTED TEAM PROVIDES QUALITY DESIGN SERVICES.

We believe that “people support that which they help create,” and this core philosophy permeates everything we do.  Our clients are involved every step of the way, ensuring that their building is more than just concrete and wood, but a structure of beauty, functionality, and individuality.

Design West utilizes “two deep leadership” for every project which means two design professionals within the firm are familiar with all aspects of the project.  This provides continuity throughout the project and ensures that someone with decision making authority is available at all times to answer questions or provide direction.
