Studio with a branch in Tucson
1521 W Date St.
Secrest Architecture is an award winning full service design studio, specializing in innovative modern residential and commercial architecture and interiors. Secrest Architecture was launched in 2010 by Steve Secrest and is located in Tucson Arizona. Steve Secrest spent his early childhood in Evansville Indiana, with fond memories of running barefoot through the rolling forested hills of Southern Indiana and skipping rocks on the banks of the Ohio River. At a very young age he relocated with his family to Tucson, Arizona and the Sonoran Desert, a very different type of climate and landscape. Through the years Steve developed a strong appreciation for the stark and beautiful Sonoran Desert and its relation to the built environment and understanding the importance of architecture to be connected to the spirit of its place. Steve graduated in 1991 from the University Of Arizona College Of Architecture. For his 18 years prior to launching Secrest Architecture he worked for, and acted as a design consultant in several well-known firms in Southern Arizona, gaining experience and honing his skills in a large variety of building and construction types. Steve Secrest has been recognized regionally and nationally for his innovative modern design and has been featured in local, national and international publications. Secrest Architecture is committed to architecture that not only satisfies users’ needs and fulfills functional aspects, but inspires and enriches the lives of its occupants; architecture that has a strong connection with the spirit of place; architecture that learns from the practical solutions of the past, but doesn’t mimic historical styles; architecture that strives for a bold new direction.
