MWA, Inc.

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.

I would highly recommend MWA Architects to any potential new home owner or contractor. We chose MWA to design our full-time Truckee residence after considering several other architectural firms. MWA stood out as being one of the most creative and collaborative firms to work with, both important considerations for us.

Working with Kurt Reinkens and Kristi Thompson was a pleasure. MWA started out trying to understand how we wanted to interact in our home environment, and designed our home around the way that we wanted to live. Integrating the final design with our lifestyle with the natural environment around our property, the end result was truly our dream home.
