This fusion is set to redefine the architectural boundaries in Louisiana and beyond, offering a blend of innovation, cultural richness, and urban sophistication.
ACSW, renowned for iconic designs like River Ranch, Lafayette High School, and the University of Louisiana’s Our Lady of Lourdes Stadium, brings its legacy of groundbreaking design and a focus on community-enhancing architecture.

It’s an exciting new chapter that promises to amplify our capabilities, expand our geographic reach, and provide our talented staff with unprecedented growth opportunities.”

Featured project already? Absolutely! ACSW and Rozas Ward have been collaboratively creating architectural wonders since 2021. This partnership sparked the dynamic synergy that led to the formation of AQ Studios.
The design team faced a significant challenge in creating the new inpatient Children’s Hospital. The goal was to develop it as a “free-standing” facility, yet it needed to have its own distinct public identity at the Jefferson Highway Campus. This was a complex task considering the need to integrate it seamlessly into an existing medical campus.
