Adrienne Stolwyk

Architect, Owner

Adrienne graduated from Kansas State University in 2008 with a M. Architecture, became a LEED AP in 2009 and licensed architect in 2015.


She worked at commercial firms in Kansas City and Columbia before founding Monarch Architecture in 2020 with a vision to provide custom residential design services with sustainable design approaches to the Mid-Missouri market. Adrienne’s construction experience gives her a practical perspective lens in evaluating design ideas.


She and her husband, Adam, have completed various renovations to their 1903 home. In addition, they constructed a hybrid stick-frame and straw bale net-zero Accessory Dwelling Unit (aka backyard house). Adrienne loves to sketch out ideas with clients and see their excitement in creating a design solution that works for them!
