The ML List: Top Architects & Designers 2019

Our guide to the Best in the West
McLaughlin & Associates Architects, Photo by Gibeon Photography

The editors of Mountain Living are pleased to present an exclusive guide to the most influential architects and interior designers at work in the West today. With recommendations from clients, vendors, professional organizations and ML readers, we’ve carefully compiled a list of top talent.

The list is organized by state and town to make it easy for readers to find help in their regions. Some architects have more than one office, and we have listed only their main corporate location.

Those who were featured in Mountain Living during the past two years receive a special highlight mentioning their most recent project as of January/February 2019. (Architects and designers featured during the past two years but located in an area outside of Mountain Living’s territory are grouped together at the end of the list.)

The list is illustrated with a few of our favorite high-country spaces featured in the pages of Mountain Living over the past year.
