Brian Garvey


Brian Garvey’s attention to architectural detail begins at the door – literally: “A custom pull or unexpected detail can set the stage for what’s inside.” As an SFS principal, his broad-ranging experience spans all aspects of design and construction. Brian thrives on diversity of project types and scales, and the opportunity to play different roles in their creation. Over the span of his architectural career, he has honed his talent for communicating design work graphically through 2-D and 3-D digital media, and a passion for sustainability, in design and in life (“say no” to plastic bags, says Brian). His organized, responsible nature lets him work effectively within each discipline of a project team.


Bachelor of Architecture, University of Kansas, 2003
