SFS Architecture


Mike Christianer


Design Director Mike Christianer believes that accomplishments aren’t singular, but accumulative. During his more than 35 years of architectural practice, his achievements have included the planning and design of diverse, award-winning projects that reflect his attention to detail and use of clean lines, natural light and varied materials to create distinctive, sustainable buildings that reflect each client’s needs and capture the imagination. Growing up in Cleveland with a metallurgist father, Mike developed an appreciation of metals and other materials. He finds continual inspiration in natural forms and phenomenon, from national parks to Kansas City thunderstorms. His accumulated portfolio of design, from offices to public safety structures, reflects a singular belief: “Good design makes life better.”


Bachelor of Environmental Design, Miami University, Ohio, 1976
