Award-winning architects Arthur and Charles Schreiber, identical twins, contributed so much to Phoenix’s post-war architecture and beyond. The twins moved to Arizona from Chicago in 1948. Their home designs can be seen all across the United States and in 9 foreign countries, They started designing homes in the Phoenix area in 1948. For an incredible 60 years, they designed homes together. The twins are responsible for the designs in 4 Sun City communities in Arizona and Florida. They worked alongside many prominent local builders, including Allied and Del Webb, The Schreiber twins designed both tract and custom homes. Some of their better known tract home designs can be seen in Village Grove, Hidden Village, Village Meadows, Rancho Mio, Northern Star, Scottsdale Meadows, Sungold Homes, Shea Foothills, Chesterfield, Dutch Village, Bel-Aire Estates, Town & Country Village, Elnan Village, 8000 North, Orchard House and Williamburg Square, just to name a few.
Their rare ‘modern’ designs (Plan 2321, Style J) in Village Grove, Hidden Village and Village Meadows are coveted by mid-century modern enthusiasts.Village Grove tracts 1-6 were designed by Arthur and Charles and now those homes are listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the Scottsdale historic register.

We recently discovered that the Schreiber twins were the architects for Gene Hancock’s Cavalier homes, including designs in Cavalier Estates, Cavalier Campus, Cavalier Homes, Cavalier Vista, Cavalier Holiday Estates and more!

Charles’s son, Richard, followed in his father’s footsteps and opened Schreiber And Associates Architects. We will continue to compile a catalog of work and additional history on the twins’ architectural contributions to the Phoenix metro area.
