About Us

Our handshake matters

For principal architects Vince Haines and David Stewart, engagement with an owner or builder is first and foremost a matter of trust. Gravity::Works Architecture has built a reputation for innovation and performance across civic, higher education, industrial and workspace projects. We’re licensed in Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, Michigan and Arizona, and we’ve built expertise in a number of key areas:

  • School design, renovations and expansions that facilitate student safety and security and elevate the student experience and connectiveness. We have valuable relationships with invested stakeholders throughout all levels of education.
  • School bond issue planning and support. We offer a robust platform of processes and solutions designed to help win voters long before they get to the ballot box.
  • Gravity::Works principals Vince Haines and David Stewart are passionate about building community engagement for important civic initiatives.
  • Architectural historic preservation and site evaluation. We’re an eager partner for streetscape consideration, planning and design. Our design charrettes help facilitate community design consensus, confidence and support.
  • Facility assessments and audits. Our architects are experienced in master planning and multi-phase, long-range facility planning.
  • Building trusted public and private sector collaborations and consortiums where interests and goals are well aligned.

The partners of the firm have extremely quick, creative minds. They combine sweeping vision with exquisite attention to detail. The firm is also very relational, and small enough that every person is a friend.”
