Stephen T. Wright, Principal
With a vision to build a client-centered design firm, Steve Wright founded Wright Heerema Architects in 1996. Over the course of his career, Steve has completed numerous corporate headquarters, each successful in large measure due to his understanding and concern for the macro organizational structure they serve, but also for the individual occupants who are its everyday users. Steve believes that client relationships should not end with a move into the building. Rather, they should be viewed as long-term. As testament to this commitment, Steve’s first client in 1996 is still an active client of our firm.
