Earl Swensson Associates, Inc.

"Anyone who has a passion for design should also have a passion for humanity." This is the belief of ESa's founder Earl S. Swensson, FAIA, and the foundation of the architecture firm he created. Our philosophy is simple. We believe that architecture should, first and foremost, promote wellness while supporting our clients' visions and the people who use the space. Our holistic approach focuses on human-centered environments that deliver optimal functional performance and future flexibility.


For over five decades, ESa has gone beyond simply responding to client requests. Instead, we always seek to identify and anticipate potential design problems and proactively address them in creative ways. Our ongoing commitments to research and to staying abreast of current and future industry trends allow our dedicated team to deliver the best possible spaces to meet clients' needs. ESa consistently ranks among the nation's leading healthcare design firms and is a charter member of the Planetree Visionary Design Network.


The third edition of Hospital and Healthcare Facility Design, authored by ESa executives Richard L. Miller, FAIA, Earl S. Swensson, FAIA, and Todd Robinson, AIA, was rolled out this spring by publisher W.W. Norton & Company. This book was hailed by the editor of Healthcare Design magazine as a "healthcare design bible."
