About Us

Our Studio

97w was founded to produce sustainable and timeless spaces throughout Fort Worth and beyond. From planning to architecture to interior design, we take bold ideas from concept to completion for clients across all industries.

We create bold spaces that fit naturally into their surroundings. Projects are designed to respond to the geography, culture, and history of their environment.

This is accomplished through diligent planning, transparent communication, and constant client collaboration.

Our Name

The 97th meridian runs through Fort Worth, just east of the 98th, which has been identified as the gateway to the western frontier and the defining geographic feature in the development of American
history and culture.

Embodying that spirit, 97w seeks to reshape the modern frontier through thoughtful design and innovative thinking.

Steven Halliday


Steven Halliday is a founding partner of 97w. Steven has a passion for design that is rooted in place; he believes that good design is universal and should be accessible to all clients. These passions are shared by the team, making 97w a hyper-local studio that operates in the blurred lines between urban in-fill, adaptive re-use, preservation and tactical urbanism in Steven’s hometown of Fort Worth, Texas.
He earned a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Houston in 2002. He is a licensed Architect in the State of Texas, a LEED Accredited Professional, and serves on the NSI Design Review Board, TCU Interior Design Advisory Board, DAC Sub-committee on Urban Infill, and the ULI Small Development Council.
