Warner Summers - Architecture & Interior Design

Engaging clients through creativity, collaboration, and teamwork

Celebrating over 50 years of Client Relationships

Client relationships are central to our success.  We are thankful for the privilege of working with our clients to solve workplace and facility needs for over 50 years.  

Founded in 1964 in Atlanta, Georgia,  Warner Summers provides comprehensive Architecture and Interior Design services for Corporate, Office, Financial, Religious, Medical, Industrial, Education, Community and Master Planning projects. Warner Summers is an integrated team of Architects, Interior Designers and professional Staff led by three Principals: Scott Ward, Rob Meleski, and Dana McClure.  Throughout our 54 year history,  we have developed effective design solutions that capture the vision, image and culture of our clients through active listening and collaboration.  Our focus is design that supports organizational goals, encourages workers and welcomes visitors.  We believe in facilities that are sustainable and flexible, which can easily and quickly adapt to changing needs.  Throughout the design process Warner Summers is focused on project cost and schedule.  On-time and on-budget performance is of paramount importance to our design team to help prevent over-expenditure and underutilization of project resources.
