WELCOME TO MWA, Inc. ARCHITECTURE, ENGINEERING, and INTERIOR DESIGN

Headquartered in Truckee, CA. MWA is an experienced firm with youthful energy and a proven track record of over 2,500 projects since our inception in 1985. We take pride in maintaining a professional presence while operating as a casual, down to earth company with a sense of humor. Our office is a fun think tank environment with dogs asleep on the floor and music thumping. We play hooky on powder days. We choose to live in the mountains for a high quality of life. Our happiness shows in our work.

We listen to what our clients say, educate them and help them weigh-off the multitude of options, factoring aesthetics, function, environment, long-term vs short-term costs, marketability, flexibility, and user satisfaction through the ages. We create a synthesis of concepts generated by our clients and ideas garnered from careful consideration of the potential. Our goal for any project is responsibility to the community, the environment, the user, and the soul.


Our custom built home is over 20 years old and needed a "refresh". The house is quite unique with few 90 degree walls, has an interesting architectural perspective, but with rooms that were just off-purpose. We wanted to move the house into the 21st century!

Kristi Thompson was very creative and provided for us a vision that we could implement in pieces, over time, subject to travel schedule and dollars. We have just completed phase one
and are totally pleased with the outcome!
