DW Ricks Architects + Associates is known for being an approachable and easy firm with which to work. Our 3 person office provides clients an intimate collaborative experience. The professional practice has an outstanding reputation for architectural excellence confirmed by a consistent high level of design, press recognition, design awards, a lengthy list of client references, and the general contractors we work with.
David has 38 years of experience in the practice of architecture and plays a central role in all aspects of the firm's work with primary focus on design, client development and firm oversight. He is engaged with every project and works with his team to cultivate and maintain the firm's reputation for responsive, high quality design and seamless project management services. One of David's primary responsibilities is to insure every project gets off on the right foot. The seminal moment of every project occurs in the first client design meeting where the design's trajectory is typically established. To assure the best possible outcome, David personally develops the initial concepts. Variety is the most effective method to uncover the best and most appropriate solution.
