Carpenter Sellers Del Gatto Architects (CSD) is an award-winning firm founded in Southern Nevada, whose architectural designs and diverse state, regional and national project portfolio, we’re honored to say, have earned the respect of our peers, over 145 design awards, including NAIOP of Southern Nevada Chapter 2019, 2016 and 2014 Architecture Firm of the Year Awards, the AIA Western Mountain Region Firm of the Year 2019 and the AIA Nevada Firm of the Year Award in 2018 and 1999, as well as state, regional and national press. We were also recognized as a 2019 TOP 10 Best Architecture Firms to Work For in the US and Canada by the Zweig Group. Since our start in 1986, our guiding philosophy, mission statement and success have been built upon one simple idea: “Nurturing our client’s interest in the art of architecture, we seek to develop in them a passion for architecture like our own.”
Today, a shared passion for the profession and a commitment to design excellence – our principals - Rick Sellers, AIA, Mike Del Gatto, AIA, LEED AP and Michele Brigida, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, are setting the example  – allowing each one of our staff members to take pride in the work, excel in a culture that fosters strong team spirit, and to thrive in a collaborating process that delivers highly functional, sustainable and appropriate designs and superior client service.
We strongly believe that our dedication to the integrity of the profession, upholding the ideals of the AIA, contributing to the profession through mentorship, scholarships, and giving back to the community through service are keys to our firm’s successes. Our design quality and reputation allows us to maintain staff which stands as a testament to the work and work ethic of the firm.
