MSA Architects was founded in 1985 with the intention of making a “better firm.” Our goal was to be a firm where clients and staff were treated with loyalty and respect. MSA Architects has grown from a single practitioner to a firm of 45 employees in two offices, one in Downtown Cincinnati and one located in Downtown Columbus. This growth has come as a result of a passion for our work, our clients..., and our Cities.
Our work is categorized in the core markets of Education, Corporate, Lifestyle, Sport, Government, Religious and Branded Environments. The latest trends in each market transpose category lines, allowing for the latest advances in design and planning to be applied to any project in any market. Much of our work consists of multi-use facilities in which we are able to incorporate attributes of many markets into one site. Our diversity has allowed us to not only stay varied in our experience, but also nimble in our execution while being uniquely creative for every project.
Customer service is in our DNA - we are passionate about creating life-long relationships. Anything less is unacceptable. We love what we do.
