Commercial Architecture that Makes Business a Pleasure

The buildings where we work play and gather should feel like distinct places with stories all their own. We should enjoy the time we spend in them and they should beckon us back time and again.


 As one of Milwaukee’s leading commercial architecture firms, Galbraith Carnahan Architects builds precisely these kinds of spaces. Drawing clues from the environment, materials, and our clients we craft businesses, restaurants, community gathering places, offices, and other buildings that are timeless in practical.

How We Work

We approach each business design project with curiosity. We seek to uncover the distinct patterns of human activity behind each building – how people use the space, move in it, interact with it, and what they need from the space.

By looking at the larger design through these small lenses, we solve the puzzle piece by piece and ensure the overall design is cohesive, thoughtful, and right for the space. Our collaboration with you means the project is truly unique and precisely tuned to your needs.

Once the design is complete, we remain involved throughout construction as your advocate. We work to bridge any gaps between drawings and reality because we believe a consistent presence from your business architecture team is vital for the success of the project.
