“[MG Architects] exhibit a genuine and knowledgeable understanding of the needs of financial institutions and demonstrate a very high level of professionalism”
— Selby Lucero, Sandia Laboratory Federal Credit Union

With over 30 years of financial design expertise, MG Architects is one of the most respected and trusted architects in the country.

MG Architects has a long standing history designing financial institutions. In 1971 we designed our first branch, eventually deciding to specialize exclusively in financial institution design in mid-1980s.  Since then we have completed over 1100 financial projects in Texas and various states around the country.

Financial design expertise has led MG Architects to design many different building types including corporate, tenant/remodeling, and retail. We strive to provide an exceptional level of design sensibility and service to all of our clients.


Dedicated to excellent service

MG Architects is dedicated to great service; a number of past and present clients can attest with glowing recommendations. When you work with MG Architects you will work directly with one of the owners: Scott Clanton or Eric Batte. Our highest priority is giving outstanding service to our clients.

MG Architects expert service is continuous from planning through construction. A dedicated Construction Administrator is on staff to assure that all projects are built to the level of quality expected.

Industry leading technology

MG Architects has pioneered the use of advanced technology to aid in the design and documentation of their projects. The use of the latest BIM (Building Information Modeling) tools help visualize building design prior to construction, integrating the process into our construction documents. This results in clear design intent, better coordination between the trades, fewer issues to resolve during construction and better value for you.

We're also adept at working anywhere, whether traveling in person or using current technologies to collaborate with clients & the design team. The use of technology has made the world more accessible and, therefore, makes it easy to work with MG Architects.
