ABOUT

MOA ARCHITECTURE is a diverse team of talented and experienced architects, interior designers, planners, marketers, technologists, and administrative staff all here for one purpose — to make a difference in people’s lives, our community, and our world by delivering the promise and value of great design.

This higher purpose drives and motivates our team to achieve great things and pushes us to think differently from other firms about the concept of success. We do not pursue objectives like market share, strong balance sheet, and profit — we believe that these are “outcomes” of a different and higher level of success, defined by making a difference through design. This approach means that we know why we are here, why we come to work every day, know where our strengths come from, know where we are going and why.

Over nearly four decades, we have fostered a firm culture rooted in design exploration and excellence, teamwork and collaboration, equity/diversity/inclusion, personal and professional mentoring, development and advancement, and the lasting value of giving back to our community.

Our high-quality design, attention to detail, technical expertise, management of people and process, and dedicated service have earned us the trust and loyalty of our clients, business partners, and the communities we serve. In nearly four decades of service, over 70% of our projects come from repeat clients or referrals from existing clients. Our clients know they can count on MOA time and time again.
