About Headwaters Architecture

Whether you’re upgrading to meet evolving market needs, expanding to elevate your lifestyle or starting fresh from the ground up, Headwaters Architecture and its team of professionals has the skills and experience to complete your home, retail space, medical office, corporate facility or church project.

What sets us apart is our ability to integrate your needs into your residential or commercial space, so it serves you for years to come. You don’t need to know specifically what you’d like to construct—it’s more important for us to understand your goals. So, even if you’re not sure, we can provide you with options to meet your architectural needs. This way, you can explore a wider range of solutions.

When you choose Headwaters Architecture, we are closely involved in every phase of the project – planning, design, build. If you require site selection and inspections we’re qualified to assist you, and can build a structure that fits your property’s unique characteristics. And, our long history of working in northern Arizona and the Phoenix metropolitan area has an advantage when it comes to many things, including getting your project approved prior to construction. Our on-going relationships with government agencies mean that your project is swiftly approved.

Todd Marolf earned his Bachelor of Arts in Architecture from Iowa State University before founding Headwaters Architecture in 1995 to assist clients in realizing their architectural dreams in northern Arizona and the Phoenix metropolitan area. Headwaters incorporated in 2000.

It’s a distinct point of pride that most of our new clients are referred to us by other clients, and we have many returning customers. While with a prior firm, we’ve earned awards for our excellence in design including the International Illumination Design Award for our work on the Ahwatukee=Foothills Medical Center.

The foundation of our business is our ability to listen to our clients in order to understand exactly what they require. If a client isn’t certain about what they want, we’ll ask them to explain their goals so we can make recommendations based upon these needs. Before we commit one keystroke to planning a new project, we want to be thoroughly informed of our client’s expectations. The practice of ‘listening to understand’ allows us to fulfill on client needs, so they can occupy their structure for years to come.

Ask us how we’d fulfill your architectural goals and you’ll understand how Headwaters has elevated architectural design to meet customers’ needs since 1995.
