We do so much more than design buildings. For more than 60 years, we’ve ideated, collaborated, and implemented to help realize meaningful spaces. Spaces that enrich lives, build communities, and make the world a better place.
On June 1, 1957, Robert Schaefer and Henry Schirmer, Jr. formed SJCF’s predecessor, Schaefer and Schirmer Architects, under the principles of honesty, cooperation, positivity, respect, continued learning, imagination and practicality. Even then, they realized the importance of creating architecture with a higher purpose.
“We stress the importance of proper programming which together with the interest of the architect fashions design to the desire of the community. This principle, the one most often lacking, brings only great architecture.”
— Robert Schaefer

Today, we’re still building on this foundation, having accomplished hundreds of projects across the U.S. in every scope, size, and area, including corporate, community, education, recreation, and worship. And there’s so much more to come.
After all these years, one thing remains the same: Our clients mean everything to us. If we can bring their visions to life, that’s a job well done.
