We use architecture to tell stories that connect people with places.

By weaving together a project’s context - its site and views, the history and materials, and the people it serves - we create an authentic future that honors the past.

While our studio specializes in adaptive reuse, AB is adept with new construction for commercial, interiors, and residential environments.

AB takes on just a few projects at a time in order to provide the complete attention that each project and client deserves; we are proud to provide friendly fees for non-profit organizations and to community-centered projects.

Angela Schwab is an eternal optimist; she believes that creative changes can make a big impact in our homes, in our communities, and in our world.

Her former life in fine art, ceramics, and product design combine to give her a unique eye for form, scale, function, and material. She has a decade of experience designing residential, commercial, and civic architectural solutions for some of the most creative and client-focused firms on the front range.

Angela is also a compulsive maker. When not architecting, she’s creating paper pop-ups and sewing quilts, slowly remodeling her house, and roping her husband, Zach, and two young daughters into her projects.


Ben Heppe loves to tell a good story and have fun, and believes that a successful project should incorporate both.

With a keen design sense that’s informed by connecting places to people and their stories, Ben has a proclivity for keeping eyes on the future while always respecting the past. He enjoys the process of design and developing meaningful relationships with people and their ideas. His architectural career spans two decades of client-centric, creative design, ranging from the preservation of iconic historic structures, to adaptive reuse of existing buildings ready for re-invention, and new commercial construction.

When not playing at the studio, Ben can be found playing in the outdoors with his wife, Kelly, and two young children.
