About Swatt | Miers Architects

We are excited to share with you some of our recent accomplishments, including numerous award-winning projects throughout the West Coast and Canada. Our designs are based on the principles of modern architecture that have made the West Coast so special — each building is knitted to its site in a way that almost seems inevitable; where appropriate, we use open planning, both horizontally and vertically, to create exciting spatial experiences; and we strive to create architecture that, both physically and visually, celebrates the beauty of the natural landscape by blurring the boundary between inside and outside.

Swatt | Miers Architects offers architecture, planning, interior design, and facility programming services to individual, corporate, public service, and institutional clients on a wide spectrum of building types. Projects range from internationally acclaimed single-family residences to a diverse array of public service buildings, including nationally recognized animal care facilities which have set the standard for this building type throughout the United States and Canada.

The firm was formed as a merger of two long-established San Francisco Bay Area firms — Swatt Architects and George Miers and Associates — with the goal of creating a practice that consistently creates beautiful, sustainable and user-responsive buildings, while offering our clients the highest level of design, management, and principle-oriented services.

The firm's dedication to design excellence, combined with the highest level of service to our clients, has contributed to the recognition Swatt | Miers Architects has received. With over 85 local, regional, and national design awards, including the prestigious National Honor Award from the American Institute of Architects, we strive to create architecture that, both physically and visually, celebrates the beauty of the natural landscape by blurring the boundary between inside and outside for a timeless quality design.
