Every project we engage in, is approached and designed with the same belief. That each project should be more than just a design but an innovative solution. Above all, we believe in a collaborative process that ultimately embraces and responds to the visions and needs of our clients.
We are a diverse and talented group of architects, interior designers and planners who believe architecture is most successful when it reflects the needs and aspirations of the client and thoughtfully interacts with the surroundings.
Our teams are structured to welcome ideas and reward collaboration in a genuinely inclusive process with a shared and unwavering commitment to excellence.
Our touchstones are intelligent, functional design and enduring client relationships.
"This firm strives to create both exciting and welcoming spaces for the public and comfortable, functional, working environments for service personnel. Whatever the project’s scope, our planners, architects, interiors, and graphic professionals communicate thoroughly with all stakeholders to ensure a finished product that fulfills client expectations and is delivered on schedule and budget."
Scott Slaggie, Principal
A legacy of art sums it up when it comes to Scott Slaggie. Inspired during childhood, it was his grandmothers love for art, a shop class and the awareness that his teacher was missing a few digits that propelled him to focus his attention on architecture. Later he realized that making a living in architecture would take more than the degree; it would require him to develop strong relationships. It is this passion that drove him to create his own firm.
As an energetic visionary and dynamic leader, he has had the privilege to lead his project teams through unprecedented success. Known to many as a project orchestrator, Scott works to skillfully arrange entire teams of experts and takes the smallest hint of an idea from conception to planning and development through the entire building process.
It’s not surprising to find Scott holds a B.S. in Architectural Studies from the University of Nebraska and a degree in Architecture and Urban Planning from the University of Kansas. What you might be surprised by is his fluke collection of Hello Kitty which creates a whimsical and almost comical relief when entering his office.
With offices in Kansas City, Missouri, and Omaha, Nebraska the firm provides comprehensive architectural, planning, interior, and environmental graphic design services for retail, corporate, commercial, and governmental entities throughout the United States.
Philanthropic & Professional Involvement
We bring energy, humility and resilience to work each day. We work hard and balance our efforts with a healthy dose of fun. We come together to celebrate professional accomplishments and life’s milestones.
We also join forces to support causes dear to our hearts, as individuals and as a firm. No one embodied this spirit of giving back to our community more than SAI’s longtime employee, Marjorie Hicks, who passed away in 2017. We continue to honor her memory and civic spirit through our continued support and involvement with causes she cared about.
