Brandt Shwayder

LEED AP, Project Manager

Brandt Shwayder has over a decade of experience in the field of architecture, including over 10 years with Rowland+Broughton.  He has extensive computer modeling, rendering, and visualization skills, and an enthusiasm for design, detail and building science.  After studying in Rome, Italy, and completing his Master of Architecture degree at University of Colorado, Brandt started his professional career working in Baden, Switzerland, collaborating with his former professor Philippe Barman.  Their work was featured in numerous publications and was exhibited in the 2004 Swiss Art Awards in Basel, Switzerland, and the Pavillion de l’Arsenal in Paris, France.  This experience afforded Brandt the opportunity to design and model several high profile competition entries for architecture in Europe, including an art museum for Lausanne, Switzerland, and a landmark for Paris’ 2012 Olympic bid.

Brandt is a Project Manager in Rowland+Broughton’s Denver office. He achieved LEED Accredited Professional status in 2009 and has since designed several LEED registered projects seeking certification.  He is working on a wide variety of architectural projects including single family residential, commercial and tenant improvement, and hospitality projects.

Originally from Virginia, Brandt moved to Colorado to study at the University of Denver, focusing on art conservation and art history. More inspired by the design and architecture industry, Brandt transferred to the University of Colorado, Boulder, where he received a Bachelor of Environmental Design degree.  He also earned a Master of Architecture degree, with highest honors, from the University of Colorado, Denver.  Brandt enjoys seeking out design inspiration while traveling – whether locally or around the globe – and incorporates these rich experiences into his design vocabulary.
