Our single goal is to do exceptional work inspired by our clients and the opportunities they present to create meaningful and memorable places.

For over 30 years the leaders of Nelsen Partners have worked together on projects throughout the US and around the world. Nelsen Partners provides architecture, interiors, planning, and urban design services with projects ranging from mixed-use developments and master-planned urban centers, to retail developments, office buildings, residential towers, hotels, performing arts venues, and restaurants. Our team of 85 and growing provides its services from offices in Austin, TX and Phoenix, AZ. We are a practice consisting of experienced professionals, inspired by the enthusiasm of talented young architects who keep our ideas fresh and expand our vision. The expertise gained on hundreds of projects combined with a commitment to exceptional service has built the foundation for the firm to continue its growth and expansion. At Nelsen Partners, architecture is viewed not solely as object-making, but the careful crafting of buildings within their environment, with attention to creating sustainable opportunities to enhance the human experience. In all aspects of design and planning, ideas are important. Our process begins with a highly collaborative design methodology grounded in a firm understanding of the project objectives, market position, and the client’s goals, and continues with a structured project management system to guide the project to completion. Expertise is balanced with creativity in our process to provide outstanding support and service to our clients.

Some of our featured projects include: The Domain, Hyatt Centric Austin, The Modern, Talavera Lofts, Chalmers Courts, Scottsdale Quarter, Kierland Commons, Preserve at 620, and The Shops at Clearfork.
