In 2001, the Columbus, Georgia office was opened by Sam Andras, Scott Allen and Michael Starr. In 2012, the firm grew to add two new partners, Geoff McKinney and Lee Martin, and a second office in Denver, Colorado. 

With offices located in Columbus, Georgia, and Denver, Colorado, the firm serves clients across the country. 2WR’s portfolio includes projects ranging in construction budgets from $100,000 to $200,000,000.  No matter what the budget, our clients are always provided with the highest level of professional services with the focus of exceeding all expectations.

Our practice has been established through relationships built on integrity and commitment, and on providing each client, and its community, with architecture of purpose.


We love what we do and it shows in our process and product.  We bring enthusiasm and energy to the team and help make the process productive and enjoyable.  We enjoy the interactive approach to project development and thereby utilize an Integrated Design Process, built on team involvement and participation.

“Principal Accountability” is another way we ensure success. A minimum of two principals will be working directly with the client at every stage of the project. 


Philosophically, the studio operates on a mission of promoting architectural excellence in every aspect of design.  From schematic design to construction quality monitoring, and from the design of massing all the way to the interior finishes, 2WR + Partners is dedicated to designing and detailing high-caliber work at
every level.

At 2WR + Partners we believe that architecture is realized through a rigorous methodology that embraces authenticity through site, materiality, technology, and client goals and budget. Through this collaborative process we develop understanding, and through understanding we develop architecture that is relevant and sustainable.
