Founded in 1978, GSC Architects is a legacy firm with deep ties to Central Texas.

GSC Architects was formed as Graeber, Simmons & Cowan over 40 years ago, following its predecessor firms from the early 1930s.  The firm was renamed and rebranded in 2010 as GSC Architects following the structured retirement of the named principals. GSC carries its heritage with a great deal of pride in the growing cities of Austin and San Antonio.

Collaborating with our clients and consultants across the state of Texas,
we provide superior services from
design development to final construction administration.

We embrace endeavors of all sizes and uphold an elegant balance of commercial and municipal architecture and interior design projects.

Our experience spans a diverse range of projects, and our expertise allows us to provide a creative and unconfined approach to design and problem solving.

Architectural design for GSC Architects has always been highly focused on context — we find reason in our solutions specific to each client and setting.

Over the past 42 years, GSC Architects has been entrusted with architectural commissions by numerous state departments, public work divisions and schools across the state of Texas, as well as some of the largest brand names in the US.

We champion the value of community, and embrace large technically challenging projects, as equally as smaller non-profit endeavors.

Well-known for our LEED design prowess and strong affiliation with the USGBC, GSC Architects is deeply committed to a greener environment and championing sustainability in all our projects big and small.

We specifically address the unique needs of the client while employing strategies to uplift the site to create better-performing buildings and healthier indoor

Our Architectural and Interior Design teams consistently deliver unique stellar environments, and they also often work in elegant synchronicity to create fully cohesive projects.

There is also a strong collaborative spirit shared by GSC Architects’ headquarters in Austin and our office in San Antonio; allowing us to match the work demands of our clients and operate fluidly without internal boundaries.
