After receiving her Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Texas at Austin, Sarah Bullock McIntyre relocated to Washington, DC to experience life outside of her native state. During her tenure living in the District, Sarah worked for a small residential architecture firm where she gained an appreciation of the challenges and rewards of home renovations and additions and an understanding of the architect-client relationship.

Knowing that Austin was where she and her husband wanted to establish roots, they returned to Texas where Sarah spent the following four years working on residential, commercial, and institutional projects for McKinney York Architects. Projects included a ranch in North Texas, residential remodels in Austin, a beach house in California and the McGarrah Jessee office in downtown Austin (awarded a 2011 Citation of Honor by the Austin AIA chapter). Her experience at MYA afforded Sarah a greater appreciation for detail and a more understated, purposeful approach to design. Having missed the smaller-scaled projects and what she loved best about residential architecture, Sarah founded her eponymous firm in 2010.   

For every project, large and small, Sarah strives to create a home that is timeless, beautiful and thoughtfully designed regardless of size or budget constraints. She feels that a successful project is a direct result of a good working relationship between the architect, client and contractor. 

Along with her husband Matt, Sarah enjoys living “small” in central Austin with their three sons and quirky cocker spaniel.  Sarah spends her free time adding to the list of home improvement projects for her contractor husband, traveling, antiquing and cheering on her boys (loudly) from the sidelines. 

Sarah is a licensed architect in the state of Texas and a member of the American Institute of Architects. She is active in The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd and a long-time supporter of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Texas.  As a founding member of the Friends of the House, a young professionals group supporting the charity mission, Sarah held various roles including that of President. Sarah and Matt were co-chairs of the 2017 Annual RMHC-CTX Lights of Love celebration held in December.
