Erik Swendseid, AIA
"Take in your environment. Feel it, hear it, see it. The ability to contribute positively to it is why I love what I do."
For each project Erik approaches, he brings a passion for enriching the overall experience that architecture can provide. Erik believes that an appreciation for the sensory impact, the usability, and the constructibility of design are all vital to blend the varied contexts of a project into a successful result.
Erik has built this philosophy over his 14+ years in the field, producing creative design solutions that yield effective working drawings, all while maintaining productive client relationships. Erik continues to explore the built environment and expand his skill set in the many varied aspects of architecture.
A native Nevadan, Erik is enamored with the rich history of the state and that has an impact on the designs he produces. Prior to graduating from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, he was involved in student organizations and took part in many extracurricular design events from AIAS Forum to the Adelaide Fringe Festival.
