Moshier Studio is an architectural firm in the Chateau neighborhood of Pittsburgh. Our partners are Cherie H. Moshier, AIA and Gary P. Moshier, AIA. The present firm was established in 2003 as a successor firm to a sole proprietorship established by Cherie in 1998.


Our clients are interested in high-performance and sustainable work and learning environments, and recognize the value of our hands-on approach.

Most of our clients own, occupy and operate the buildings we design. We guide such owners through a process where stakeholders are heard, and responsible use of funds is demonstrated. This leads to a facility that supports and enhances their mission. We use REVIT Building Information Modeling (BIM) and other visulaization and modeling tools to explore our designs so that our clients have the best information possible to make the important decisions that are part of any building project.


Moshier Studio principals are members of AIA Pittsburgh, U.S. Green Building Council, and The Green Building Alliance and the International Passive House Association.


Moshier Studio is a Woman Owned Business and is certified as a Woman Business Enterprise (WBE) in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the State of Maryland.
