A.GRUPPO architects was founded in 2005 by Andrew Nance and Thad Reeves. From the outset, the office has been positioned as a vehicle for collaboration between themselves and other designers, architects, fabricators: and most importantly clients.

A.GRUPPO engages in a broad range of project types and scales from intimately detailed interior "installations" to large scale master planning and speculative development. Thoughtful solutions to these "design problems" are informed by ongoing research in the ever-changing landscape of project delivery and tectonics. The quest for mastery of spatial articulation through light, materiality and composition is the key to attaining the transcendent experiential quality of Architecture.

There are a wide variety of issues impacting the practice of Architecture today. Technology, economics, and sustainability all shape the way architects engage the process. We believe the ongoing discourse of Architecture is a critical component to the process of practicing in this field. At A.GRUPPO we are constantly mindful of this and value the "conversation" between architect and client as a necessary ingredient for the development of quality projects.


A. GRUPPO is a design + build architecture firm that specializes in sustainable, modern residential and commercial builds throughout the state of Texas. With two Texas offices in the heart of Dallas and San Marcos, A. GRUPPO has proven themselves with an array of unique and timeless buildings and continues to seek innovation, sustainability, and craftsmanship with every new project.
