Pillar Architecture Studio

One-Year Anniversary

Please join us as we celebrate the first anniversary of Pillar Architecture Studio!

KPA Engineers welcomed Pillar Architecture Studio (Pillar) as a new division of the firm in 2022 to provide creative and practical architectural expertise for project needs. Pillar was founded by Principals, Bruce W. Hoelscher, AIA, LEED AP, and Amy W. Silva, AIA, NCARB, and has since welcomed Erika K. Wurtele, NCIDQ, as a Design Associate. With their combined experience of over 55 years, Pillar offers context-driven and quality solutions in the following areas:

  • Architectural Design & Consulting
  • Interior Design & Consulting
  • Code Analysis
  • Site Planning & Programming
  • Project Management
  • Feasibility Studies & Cost Estimates
  • Construction Documents & Administration

Throughout the first year, Pillar has produced functional and innovative architectural solutions that inspire and unite the community. Pillar’s dedication to serving the community can be seen in the collaboration and design of the new Temple Community Clinic (TCC). Pillar designed a new clinic, with TCC’s goal of becoming a focal point of compassion and caring, which creates a space that emphasizes patient and staff comfort with a welcoming and approachable design.

Pillar’s commitment to understanding and fulfilling clients’ needs has played a vital role in the success of their first year, and we look forward to many years to come with Pillar on our team.
