Innovative design for all of your school facility needs with personalized service from start to finish

K-12 Educational Architecture

Claycomb Associates, Architects was established in 1984 with a clearly defined mission: Providing students and clients with excellent design and excellent service.

Although the educational landscape continues to change, our mission has not.

With offices in Dallas, Austin, and Houston, Claycomb is positioned to serve districts all over the state. We have developed a seamless planning and design process through our experience in different markets and with all size districts. We keep up with changing educational requirements, safety needs, and building technologies so that you don’t have to.

Our designs are characterized by ample natural light, creative use of color, and innovative use of space, ensuring that your new facility will adapt to the changing needs of your students and will serve your community for years.

All of our designs are carefully master planned for future expansion when your student enrollment dictates.

We recognized that strong schools build strong communities and that schools should be a welcoming place for all stakeholders. Therefore, our designs incorporate community spaces that can be accessed for public use after-hours for various events. These assembly spaces also provide your district with flexible options for assemblies, staff development, and trainings.

When it comes to our clients, we take great pride in creating and upholding the relationships we have built over the years. We understand the importance of listening to your needs and concerns, and maintaining our reputation by being accessible, communicative, and professional.

Over 90% of the districts we work with are repeat clients. This metric indicates just how important providing trustworthy, attentive service is to us.

Our focus is student-centered design. Your focus is also on students. Where our values overlap is the opportunity for a thriving partnership that will not only help your students experience success, but also provide a great source of pride for your entire community.


As a part of expanding our relationships with school districts, Claycomb is a proud sponsor of the Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA) and proud partner of the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB).
