We Are Beecher Walker


Beecher Walker is one of the West’s top commercial architecture firms, with a team of 40 architects and designers united by a passion for good design. Founded in 1998, our services include architecture, interior design and master planning and span specialty areas such as commercial office, hospitality, multi-family (apartments and senior living), entertainment/cultural venues, industrial, and much more. We believe that sustainable design is just plain good design. We believe in using the latest technology to help our clients better visualize their projects to make important decisions.  And at our core we believe that good design in architecture is more than the visual end result, it must do what it was intended to do in every way – aesthetically, emotionally, functionally and financially. It’s the achievement of this perfect fusion that gets us excited and keeps clients coming back. We feel this philosophy must be working as evidenced by our over 7 million sq. ft. of office projects, 7.5 million sq. ft. of multi-family residences, 4000+ hotel rooms and more.

Beecher Walker. A love of good design.
