Principals

Who We Are

We are FAB, a husband and wife led architecture firm in Austin, Texas.

For more than two decades, our close-knit team have designed award-winning residential and commercial projects across Texas. And while the recognition and accolades are appreciated, our true passion comes from realizing the vision and dreams of our clients. To become true partners with them in creating a space that is timeless and continually inspiring.

Meeting Room

We Listen

Half of design is listening.

We love meeting with our clients throughout the process because we love hearing your ideas, getting your input, understanding what you want and need. Yes, we have strong opinions, but they are always in service of your vision.

They worked hard to understand our aesthetic and program. Their dedication, kindness and talent were able to enhance, refine and transform our vision into a cohesive wonderful home.

Designers
Office Interior

We Design

We strive for timeless design.

At a time when sustainability is a necessary goal, the most sustainable thing we can do is employ good design. We do this by creating thoughtful spaces that flow, serve its occupants well and buoy the spirit.

Tile Samples

They are familiar with local resources and introduced us to some Austin artists and craftsmen who contributed meaningful pieces to our project that I continue to cherish. They worked fluidly with our contractor and always advocated our best interests.

Office Work

We Collaborate

We value all the skills and talents that go into realizing a project.

We work closely with contractors, engineers, interior and landscape designers as well as local suppliers. Each discipline brings a unique perspective to a project and are necessary to bring our design to life.

We Live & Work in Austin

To be architects in Austin is a blessing and a great responsibility.

With every project, we help transform the landscape of a city we love and respect. We have not only started our firm here, but we started our family here. Our roots run deep and when we've been entrusted with designing a home for a family or a new space for a business, it’s our way of giving back to a city that has given us so much.

Office Exterior

I highly recommend this company. Whether you are preforming a small remodel, a large renovation, or new construction they will exceed your expectations. They listen to what you want and creatively design to meet your needs.
