OUR WORK

Koch and Wilson Architects' reputation, although rooted in traditional and restoration architecture, has over the years, expanded the scope of its services to include a broad range of building types; from custom residences to hotels, to banks and fire stations; the geographic range of work has expanded throughout the southeast United States. The variety of designs the firm has accomplished indicates a wide range of approaches and solutions to the various unique problems that are presented. The firm is proud of its long-standing, repeat clients, and the numerous citations for design excellence, and has received awards from the American Institute of Architects, Louisiana Architects Association, Vieux Carre Commission, New Orleans Chamber of Commerce, Greater New Orleans Tourist and Convention Commission and the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Each project benefits from the collaborative efforts of all three principals, who insure a personal level of attention and are always actively involved in the project from its beginning to its successful completion. Our body of work demonstrates the knowledge, understanding, and appreciation of classic architecture that is a vital part of the practice of Koch & Wilson, it is the refinement of concept, and detail of stylistically correct design, that is the signature of our firm.

OUR HISTORY

Koch and Wilson Architects' legacy began in 1916, when Charles Armstrong and Richard Koch formed an architectural partnership combining their strong Beaux Arts training with an appreciation for the unique qualities of the architecture of the South.  Samuel Wilson, Jr. joined the firm in 1930, and in 1955 the partnership of Richard Koch and Samuel Wilson, Jr. Architects was formed.  In 1972, the firm incorporated as Koch and Wilson Architects APC. The firm has been widely recognized in the Gulf South for its pioneering work in restoration, preservation, and adaptive reuse architecture, as well as the design of new buildings that blend harmoniously into their contextual relationship and offer above all unquestionable quality.

Koch and Wilson has been involved with many of the most notable historic structures in New Orleans; including The Cabildo, Ursuline Convent, St. Patrick's ChurchGallier House, Hermann-Grima House, Trinity Church, the Pontalba Buildings, St. Mary’s Assumption Church, the French Market, and the Pitot House; in other parts of Louisiana the list includeds the Rene Beauregard House, Shadows-on-the-Teche, Grace Episcopal Church and San Francisco Plantation; and in Natchez, Mississippi; The House on Ellicott Hill,  King’s Tavern, and  Magnolia Hall.

The three principals have worked together for more than thirty years and maintain the firm name, as well as the highest standards of traditional architecture established by its founders.
