Schwarz-Hanson Architects is an established place in the Dallas-Fort Worth community

In 1995, Gerald Schwarz and Tod Hanson opened its doors to Schwarz-Hanson Architects in a former bank space shared with another firm. In the pursuit of gaining experience, the firm took on and completed a wide range of projects varied in size, scope and price range. From this humble beginning, the firm’s principles of innovative design, quality construction documents, and unmatched service were formed. These traits, applied to all projects, still apply today. ​

From commercial to residential, industrial to religious, private sector to public sector, Schwarz-Hanson Architects has experience in every project type. With a strong commitment to community, the firm has and continues to provide pro-bono architectural services to many local charitable organizations and foundations. Thousands of successful projects and satisfied clients are the reasons for Schwarz-Hanson Architects’ steady growth and its established place in the Dallas-Fort Worth community.
