Headquartered in the Kansas City metro area, NSPJ Architects has been involved in the tremendous growth that has characterized our city. Our founders believed strongly in the importance of respecting the context of carefully-proportioned, richly-detailed architecture and efficient space planning.
Today, the tradition continues. Whether the project is a remodel, an addition to a historic building, new construction, or site planning, our architects near you believe design and detailing should respect the existing structure and properly blend into its neighborhood, while public or private spaces should serve our clients’ needs.
We consistently attract individuals who enthusiastically embrace our architectural design traditions, and our current team members collectively have more than 500 years of experience. Our energetic and creative staff of architects, landscape architects, and planners have extensive experience in a broad range of project types and take a step-by-step collaborative approach while working closely with our clients.
NSPJ Architects has built a long-standing tradition of excellence in service and architectural design, commitment to quality, and devotion to creating the best lifestyle-rich environments for our clients. Our residential architects, commercial architects, and landscape architects work together in a truly holistic design approach for all our projects.
Howard Nearing, AIA, founded our firm in June 1961. Since the start, NSPJ Architects has provided comprehensive site planning and architectural design services for more than 6,500 projects encompassing a diverse range of types and complexities.
Our standard is to provide the highest-quality construction documents on every project. Each set of drawings meets the elevated expectation that the content be detailed, comprehensive, and intelligible.
Two designated quality assurance/quality control architects review all projects for integrity prior to release. Our process results in projects with a low percentage of field change orders, and a great ease of construction; contractors hold our construction documents in high regard for their thoroughness.
Our architecture firm believes it can better approach a client’s needs by having a broad range of experience in many building types, construction methods, and practices, leading to innovative solutions for each client’s unique circumstances. We are proud of our past experiences and look forward to using them to develop new ways of surpassing our clients’ expectations.
