Company Overview

Remarkable experiences result from a thorough response to sensory details beyond a building. Clayton & Little is an interdisciplinary design firm known for creating layered, coherent experiences by filtering context and intent to summon the richness of place. Though projects are diverse in style, type, and geography, an independent yet ever-gracious spirit animates them all. This intangible hallmark — Clayton & Little’s signature — reflects the firm’s values and its deep Texas roots.

Clayton & Little established its Austin office in 2005. In 2015, the firm expanded from Austin to San Antonio after completing several high-profile projects in the Alamo City. The second office joins more than 30 architects and designers with a long history of working together in the two cities while broadening the firm’s range of services to incorporate architecture, interior design, experience design, brand and identity. The beneficial exchange of ideas across the region has impacted locations outside of Texas; recent expansion includes projects in California, Florida, Hawaii, Maryland and beyond.
