Method Architecture Acquires Primal Architecture
Dallas, TX (January 10, 2020) – Primal Architecture, a retail and mixed-use focused design firm in Dallas has been acquired by Method Architecture, a Texas-based architecture firm. Primal Architecture designed local projects such as Fernando’s Mexican Cuisine at Cityline, Lockwood Distilling Co., and Fireside Pies at Creekside Shopping Center.
Primal Architecture was owned and operated by Drew Hayes. Hayes has joined Method’s Dallas office as Studio Manager & North Texas Lead. Hayes brings experience from firms including PBK, Raymond Harris & Associates and Good Fulton & Farrell Architects. He has worked on notable projects including The Shops at Park Lane, Firewheel Plaza, and the Dallas Center for Performing Arts. Drew has served in leadership positions with the AIA, the City of Richardson Parks Board, and is actively involved with Corenet and NTCAR.
The acquisition of Primal Architecture supports Method Architecture’s plans for growth in the Dallas-Fort Worth region with a vision to expand their office, industrial, retail/mixed-use, and brewery portfolio. Method Architecture maintains three offices in Dallas, Houston, and Austin and looks to continue expansion into new markets in the future. The company will continue to be led by Method partners Jake Donaldson, Eric Hudson, and Keith Holley.
The deal was completed in December 2019. The newly acquired firm will operate under Method Architecture. Method Architecture was formed through the merger of two Houston-based firms, Architects Plus and Three Square Design Group, in 2016. The firm acquired Architecture Plus, a public-focused firm in Austin, in 2017 and opened the Dallas office in 2018. Current local projects include Woodcreek Brewing in Rockwall, Novel Office Coworking in downtown Dallas, and EastGroup industrial developments throughout the region.
