Michael Stephens, AIA, NCARB

Managing Partner
  • "Being an architect is so rewarding. I enjoy being part of a team that sweats the details, achieves great design, develops concise documents, and provides superior service."

As a muscle-car and drag racing fanatic, Michael understands the importance of applying the right processes to win the race. Knowing the ins and outs of what it takes to win, he applies many of the same complex planning, coordination and design details that make for memorable architecture. With experience working as an architect and as director of construction for a community college district, he knows the best approach to take projects to completion.

And, he’s done this for more than two decades.

His experience is deep and wide, have designed large master plans and commercial renovations. Either way, Michael continues to lead his team with the same passion and drive, from large or small projects for education, commercial, retail and government clients throught the southland.

In Michael’s role as a principal, he is known for his forthright, intelligent, creative and supportive leadership. He has an established relationship with the Division of State Architect (DSA), local city officials and many school district personnel. He was president of AIA Inland Empire and continues to be an active member.
