Mr. Traxel is an original partner of DILLE TRAXEL ARCHITECTURE. His background as a professional architect includes experience in all areas of the field with a special interest in seeing the Southeast Missouri and Northeast Arkansas Region grow and flourish. He has devoted his practice to helping this region through architecture, preservation, and economic development.

Mr. Traxel graduated with his architecture degree from Kansas State University, one of the top architecture schools in the country. After working in St. Louis for seven years, he is proud to have established his practice in Poplar Bluff, Missouri where he is an active community leader. His sense of organization and design shows in the quality of his work and satisfaction of his clients.

Ben Traxel is a believer in building strong, trusting relationships with clients and that a project is not successful unless the owner is truly satisfied upon its completion. He feels that it is most important to “serve” as a client’s architect and is willing to go to great lengths to ensure every client is proud of the final product.
