root is a boutique architectural design firm with a focus on adapting historic buildings, fermenting culture and cultivating community.

Root Architects was born out of frustration and excitement for what is lacking and what may come to be for development and architectural design in El Paso. Founded in 2010, the mission was always to give some life and positive contributions back to the El Paso community. The Root team, seeing the endless potential of our city, is dedicated to revitalizing, enhancing and improving the El Paso historical fabric in order to bring it up to par with other cities. The motivation for our work is seeing how the community continually learns, evolves, grows & thrives. Whether we’re keeping historic spaces sacred or creating new ones that elevate our city, we are determined to revamp the community with carefully thought out and designed spaces.
