McKinney York Architects

McKinney York Architects was founded in Austin in 1983 as Heather H. McKinney Architects when Heather was asked to design a house for two high school friends. That first project, The Canyon House, earned the highest design honor from AIA Austin, establishing a standard of excellence that continues in the firm.

In 1996, the firm incorporated as McKinney Architects and since has added two principals: Al York, AIA and Michelle Rossomando, AIA. In 2008, to better reflect the collaborative nature of the practice and to acknowledge Al’s contributions to the success of the firm, the name was changed to McKinney York Architects.

McKinney York is now firmly established as a leading general practice firm in Texas with expertise across the full spectrum of building types from residential to institutional. To each project we bring our enthusiasm and our collaborative design process that draws inspiration equally from the clients’ aspirations, the project program, and the unique qualities of the site. The results are timeless designs that are remarkably free from a signature style and responsive to their context.

Our work continues to be recognized by our peers with design awards at the local, regional, and national levels and in the press with more than 150 articles and books. This sustained excellence earned McKinney York Architects the Firm Achievement Award from AIA Austin and our founding principal, Heather McKinney, election to the AIA College of Fellows.
