At High Plains Architects, we uphold our mission to serve and inspire our clients, community, heritage, and environment by designing innovative, cost-effective, high-performance buildings in every project we design.
High Plains is a full service architecture firm based in the high plains of Montana. For over a decade, Principal Randy Hafer and the rest of the High Plains team have provided customized design for our clients, emphasizing sustainability, preservation and restoration, and urban revitalization.

High Plains strives to create buildings that endure through thoughtful understanding of our clients' needs and awareness of the surrounding landscape. We make sustainable attainable and have defined ‘Urban Rustic’ as the careful balance between innovation and preservation.

While based in Montana, our team has lived, worked and studied across the country (as well as abroad), from the East Coast to Chicago to the San Francisco Bay Area, and throughout the Greater Yellowstone region.
