We are dedicated to creating innovative, resilient, award-winning design solutions.

Established in 1981, STOA Architects is a Northwest Florida based firm focused on delivering exceptional design services that bring great value to our clients.



STOA (/ˈstō-ə/) is a term used in ancient Greek Architecture to describe a covered public walkway.


Stoicism, derived from the term STOA, is a philosophy that we believe deeply influences the practice of architecture and office culture.  Stoicism teaches that the pursuit of knowledge and reason are virtuous.  Stoicism also emphasizes the benefit of community above individual gain or benefit.


STOA Architects is a minority-owned small business serving local, regional, and national clients. Over the past 40 years, we have completed projects for industrial, commercial, governmental, educational, medical, and residential clients. Much of our business comes from repeat clients. We value the relationships we develop and work diligently to provide the absolute best service. Our projects range in size and scope from small detailed renovations to 270,000 square feet large scale facilities encompassing over $60 million in construction value.
