CMW Architects & Engineers have designed horse facilities locally, nationally and internationally. Our design experience ranges from the planning of entire farms, to individual barns and buildings.

CMW realizes and understands that unlike traditional architecture, equine design focuses on the health, safety and comfort of horses. We tailor our designs to meet the special needs of the horse, as well as the owner’s goals and preferences.

CMW designers work together toward one common goal, a functional, well-designed project that is produced within budget and on-schedule. CMW retains the flexibility and personal involvement expected of a small organization, while being able to offer our clients a full range of design services. Most importantly, CMW listens and works hard to develop a team relationship with our clients.
