Sam McGuire

Sam has over 16 years of experience in the fields of architecture and construction administration. During his career, Sam has provided world-class architectural solutions to private and instructional clients in the Seattle, Washington and Washington, DC markets, before returning home to Little Rock to join the JohnsonDanforth Design team. Sam attained his Bachelor of Architecture, with a minor in Architectural History, from the University of Arkansas in 2004. He is proud to be Project Architect for a number of award-winning healthcare and laboratory projects; most notably, the Paul G Allen Institute for Brain Science Headquarters and Medstar Georgetown University Hospital. Our valued clients benefit from his comprehensive working knowledge of building codes, his talent for integrating structural and building performance system, and his understanding of diverse construction methodologies.


Pre-covid times, you would catch Sam singing a high tenor in the church choir singing in either Latin or English. We’re sure he’ll be back once Covid settles back down, but in the meanwhile, Sam has made it a personal mission to unbox all parts of Arkansas to the rest of the world on his Youtube channel. He’ll be off hiking or camping wherever it’s possible. You never know what he’ll uncover next!
