About Us

Otto/Walker Architects was founded on the dual principles of designing structures which fulfill the aesthetic as well as practical desires of its clients while utilizing all the attributes a building site has to offer. These natural gifts often include expansive views, generous solar exposure, mature vegetation and topography which can help to enhance a design. To be successful in a mountain environment such as Park City, Utah, these two key goals must be achieved while also providing a beautiful project which endures the test of time.

Otto/Walker Architects operates emphasizing client involvement throughout the project while providing the vision, creativity and thorough beginning to end service that our years of experience can provide.
