At Mascari Warner Architects, we understand that for a business to truly be innovative and responsive to the clients’ needs, there must be a shift from simply producing a service to creating an environment, evoking a feeling, and inspiring those who interact with it. From healthcare to commercial, offices to residential, we beautifully combine function with form from the inside out.


MWA Awarded Best in Show 2010 IIDA - runway

Mascari Warner Architects awarded “Best in Show” at the 2010 IIDA Fashion Show, San Diego

Mascari Warner Architects (formerly Childs Mascari Warner Architects) is pleased to announce our “Best in Show” win at this year’s IIDA Fashion Show in San Diego. The Southern California Chapter of the International Interior Design Association invited design and architecture firms to create fashions for the 2010 show, themed “Haute Couture,” using industrial materials exclusively from vendor sponsors. Mascari Warner Architects, teaming with Aesthetics Inc., took a cue from the regal peacock to create a vintage-inspired runway gown. Our sponsors included Nemschoff, a healthcare furniture manufacturer, and Sherwin Williams, a paint manufacturer. Dress construction incorporated the following resources from our sponsors:

  • Upholstery fabric for bodice, corset, skirt, and “tail feathers”
  • Mesh fabric for petticoat
  • Wood veneer for “tail feathers”
  • Paint chips for “tail feathers”
  • Paint stir sticks framing the corset
  • Paint brushes, deconstructed, inserted into “tail” for texture and volume
