The ML List: Top Mountain Architects 2022

Updated: Sep 30, 2022

Our guide to the best in the West

January 13, 2022 ML Staff

The 2022 ML List, compiled by the editors of Mountain Living, is different from past years.

We have broken the list into two parts: you will find our list of Top Mountain Architects here.

Interior Designers will have their own list appearing in the M/J 2022 issue. As the number of interior designers and architects working in the Rocky Mountain West has grown, so has the number of firms on the list. So we felt it was important to create two lists to give them the attention they deserve.

These architects in mountain territories have worked hard to become top in their professions, and we’ve taken note of their work, along with receiving recommendations from their clients, vendors, professional organizations and readers.

Keeping our readers in mind, we’ve organized the list to be user friendly. You’ll find architects listed by state and town; some architects have more than one office location, and we have listed only their main corporate location.

Those who were featured in Mountain Living during the past two years receive a special highlight that mentions their most recent projects in the magazine as of January/February 2022. Architects who have been featured during the past two years but are located in an area outside of Mountain Living’s territory are grouped together at the end of the list.

This year’s list is illustrated with a few of our favorite high-country spaces featured in the pages of Mountain Living over the past year.
