The story of WNB Architects.
In 1984, Gary Warner, Dennis Nease and Ken Bost formed Warner-Nease-Bost Architects, Inc., known now as WNB Architects. Our founders had a vision of an innovative, creative, and inspirational architecture firm that would provide our clients an uncommon level of attention and service.
As our firm grew, we invested in our future and the Kansas City community by purchasing the historic Harrow Taylor Butter Company building in the River Market Neighborhood.
Our building is included in the National Register of Historic Places and our renovation of the space has received multiple awards and recognitions, including a Cornerstone Award from the Kansas City Economic Development Corporation. 517 Delaware is still our home and embodies our firm’s motto: Innovate. Create. Inspire.
In the 1990s, Craig Brannin and Brian Adams joined WNB Architects ownership group, adding energy and experience to our growing leadership.
Through architecture, we can transform our clients’ and communities’ wants and needs into solutions and successes. WNB Architects values the connection between design, our environment, our citizens, and our future. We invite you to work with us – we will create timeless, accessible, impactful, and sustainable spaces that connect communities for generations to come.
let's work together.
We believe our success is a direct result of listening to you - administrators, staff, parents and students. We turn a list of project wants and needs into project solutions and successes.
