Arturo Chavez AIA, LEED AP

Senior Principal


Having designed a wide variety of building types throughout his career as an architect, Art Chavez realizes that his greatest skill is helping others discover their own individual talent. He finds value and fulfillment in working with associates to achieve their maximum potential, and then helping them to develop into leaders in their fields of expertise. That’s an unexpected benefit to his job with Page. “Seeing people grow. Seeing people come into their own,” Art told an interviewer for a 2011 profile in the Houston Business Journal, “When you challenge someone and let them do it — that’s a joy. Seeing people flourish.”

The son of a millwork contractor and a native Houstonian, Art joined Page in 1995 and eventually became one of the youngest employees to be made a firm principal. He has personally selected the firm’s design studio architects and designers, whom he describes as being “from all over [and] reflect the cultural diversity of these projects. They also help enhance our reputation beyond Houston.” While he often takes the lead on client presentations and the design of projects, Art’s confidence in his team allows him to act as an observer and encourage his staff to grow professionally by taking on increasing responsibilities.
