Otwell Associates Architects was formed in 1979 to provide architecture and planning services to clients throughout the southwest. Located in downtown Prescott, we offer a full range of professional services including: master planning, architectural design, historic preservation, sustainable design and interior architecture.


Over the past 30 years, Otwell Associates Architects has established itself as a cultural force within Arizona. We have extended our services across the state as Architects, Preservationists, Consultants, and Planners to create and restore environments for a wide range of clients. From the beginning we have been advocates and practitioners of sustainability; designing and building some of the first solar heated homes in Arizona and employing the use of real adobe as the primary material in many of our projects. In light of the modern advancements of green building, we have preserved that mentality and are LEED accredited.


One of Otwell Associates’ specialties is historic preservation, which can be a factor in any type of project from public to private or commercial to residential.  With over 30 years of experience and our team’s educational background, Otwell Associates overwhelmingly meets the Secretary of the Interior’s Professional Qualification Standards for architecture and historic architecture.  We have been responsible for most of the restoration projects in Prescott and are well known for our abilities and skills as they relate to evaluating historic buildings, thoroughly researching the history, developing a proper plan for the restoration, preservation, or rehabilitation, and seeing that plan through to completion.  We are committed to preservation where possible, appropriate rehabilitation, and attaining a finished product that the client and community can be proud of.
