About Us


practical visionaries.

Sandstrom Architecture’s main focus for the past 116 years has been education architecture, but has also successfully designed a wide range of projects including multi-family residential, hospitality, airport terminals, office buildings, and resorts. Stephen E. Sandstrom, the fourth generation and Principal Architect, has led the firm through tremendous growth with offices in Utah and Colorado on projects throughout the Intermountain West.

Not only do we provide the customary five phases of architectural services (Schematic Design, Design Development, Construction Documents, Bidding, and Construction Administration), we also provide Assessment Studies, Programming Services, Interior Design, and Construction Management. Our extensive experience in performing these services, combined with our competency in the latest BIM technology, translates into accurate Construction Documents with little or no change orders, superior coordination, and a smooth construction process. 

Sandstrom Architecture was established in April of 1898 in Idaho Falls, Idaho by Carl E. Sandstrom, a young Swedish immigrant. Sandstrom Architecture has been in continual operation since that date, making us the third longest operating firm in the United States. The firm opened its Utah Office in 1927 and its Colorado Office in 2003. Our firm has shaped the architectural landscape in Utah and the Intermountain West for over a century.
