Architect One, Inc.
Founded in 1988 by Michael Wilson, Architect One is a full service Architectural and Planning firm providing complete professional design services to Topeka and much of the central states region. Prior to establishing the firm, Mr. Wilson had served as a plan reviewer with the City of Topeka with previous experience in architectural firms in Topeka and Colorado. Conceived with the idea that a small firm could compete with larger firms by utilizing technology yet provide a closer working relationship with the clients and consultants, Architect One was established.
In 1993, Scott Gales joined Architect One’s staff. With previous experience in California and Kansas, Scott brought a talent for design and an enthusiasm for integrating new technology and practice to better assist our clientele. Having received professional registration in 1996, he accepted partnership in the firm with Michael in 1998. Scott continues to explore new and unique design solutions to meet our clients programmatic and budgetary requirements.
Through the years, Architect One has been successful at bettering the built environment. Listening and understanding the demands of our clients and providing them with technical and design expertise and professional representation has afforded us with the opportunity to expand our clientele base and the complexity of projects. With a diverse list of projects and satisfied clients throughout much of the Midwest, we have achieved a reputation of providing excellent service and unique design that has resulted in substantial referral-clientele in addition to our repeat clientele.
