SALA Architects Inc

"Homes are where we stage our lives; the sets should celebrate the play."

SALA Architects, Inc. is an architectural design firm founded in 1983. The foundation of our firm has long been our residential work. Most of our projects are new custom homes, retreats or alterations to existing homes. We also design non-residential projects when they are intended to possess the special qualities found in our residential work.

SALA Architects has focused on energy efficient and ecologically sensitive design for more than thirty years. We have built our reputation on the translation of client dreams into uniquely designed and artfully crafted homes that sit lightly on the land.

We have two offices located in the Minneapolis/St.Paul area of Minnesota, and employ more than 25 architectural professionals and support personnel. We design projects throughout the U.S. as well as abroad.

Architect Sarah Susanka, FAIA was part of the SALA team that designed the Life Dream House.
