About Us

4x Best of Houzz winner
13 years in business
Refined Architectural Design Firm | 4x Best of Houzz Winner
At SMS Architects, we take a thoughtful and comprehensive approach to envision the opportunities presented to us by each of our projects. All of our architectural jobs have a unique and special quality – it’s our mission to identify and enhance that quality through our design work. However subtle or distinct the design, we give each project as much dimension as the program’s scope and budget avails. In doing so, we incorporate the codes required of the building locality, our customers’ budgets and expectations, and our blend of appropriate and tasteful design. We manage the many moving parts that go into a build, bringing the pieces together to deliver a comprehensive drawing package. We work closely with our clients throughout the course of their project to communicate our intention and arrive at a solution together. Clients can expect a commitment to efficiency demonstrated in all aspects of our work. Scott Stephens grew up on the Chesapeake Bay of Virginia. After receiving a B.S. in Architecture from the University of Virginia, he spent 15 years in the boat business, designing and building custom offshore sport fishing boats. Scott's profession then shifted into architecture when he returned to graduate school to get his masters degree from Virginia Tech. In 2002, Scott began his architecture career in Richmond, VA. After interning for two Richmond firms and earning his license, Scott founded SMS Architects in the fall of 2008.
