The roots of Page extend back to a two-person partnership formed in 1898 in Austin. The firm received several prominent commissions in Austin, among them the Austin National Bank on Congress Avenue and the Littlefield building, which is still standing.  The son of one of its founders, Louis Page, began what would become a strong link between the firm and education by teaching at the University of Texas, a practice that has been continued through today in the Austin office as well as others. 

In the mid-1980s, the Austin office set an active goal of advancing the architectural ambitions of that community. In particular, the firm began to be very involved in downtown revitalization through civic participation and community activism as well as through professional projects. Its design work gained increasing recognition, notably on the Austin Convention Center which was the most prominent initiative in the city for downtown revitalization.

Throughout the 1990s, Page became the firm of choice for many more landmark civic projects in Austin including various planning projects, a new airport terminal, a major state office complex at the foot of the Capitol Building and a new six-block district around City Hall now known as 2nd Street District. 

Page has played an important role in design and sustainability leadership in the community as well. From 1984 to 2013, buildings designed under the principals’ leadership have won a dominant 30 AIA Austin design awards and continue to set the pace for the transformation of Austin’s emerging architectural community into one of the most vibrant in the nation.
