Meet our team.
SAR+ Picnic
I was attracted to SAR+ because it is a people oriented firm. The care we have for each other seamlessly extends to the care we have for the people we design for.

Wei Zhao


Wei Zhao is a native of China who moved to the United States in 2011 to pursue a Master’s in Architecture. After choosing Denver from a wide selection of American cities, Wei chose to make the Mile High City home thanks to the high caliber of education and exceptional career opportunities in Colorado.

Since joining SAR+ in 2016, Wei has made a tremendous impact on his project assignments such as a Master Plan for a mixed-use development called Miller’s Landing, a new residential community at 17th& Pearl in Denver’s Uptown neighborhood, and a Concept Design for Denver’s D4 Condominium project. Thanks to a creative approach to problem solving and a well-honed eye for design details, he helps push our work toward newer technologies and design approaches every day. In his prior position before joining our practice, Wei had the opportunity to develop design solutions for award-winning projects such as a major technology company’s corporate campus in Boulder and on a series of adaptive reuse projects as well. Wei is also a passionate activist in the Denver community with strong ambitions for affordable housing solutions for Denver and a committed alumnus of his alma mater, the University of Colorado at Denver.
