With a half-century of experience as an architect, Gene Guszkowski is intent on helping his colleagues reach their goals. Guszkowski, president of the Wauwatosa-based AG Architecture, said he’s happy that the firm’s legacy has provided a foundation for its fourth generation of ownership. Most architecture firms, he said, don’t make it to a second generation.
“The fact that we’re still going strong is a good reflection of the work we do, our people and staying relevant,” Guszkowski.
AG Architecture has tackled a number of mixed-use projects in its native Wauwatosa in recent years, including the $28.6 million, 14-unit State Street Station development. The firm has also designed various large senior living projects, which are increasingly demanding a range of amenities for Baby Boomer residents, Guszkowski said.
AG Architecture also designed Milwaukee’s St. Rita Square project, which converted a beloved Italian church into a retirement community that preserves the property’s history.
