Sarah Mannes Homstad, AIA

01 about

Prairie Line Architecture ~ 

a familiar face with a new name.


Sarah Mannes Homstad, AIA has worked under the name Mannes Architects for over 16 years, first as an employee and then for nine years as its Owner. She has now officially re-launched her practice under the name Prairie Line Architecture, a name that references the historic train depot that serves as her headquarters in Yankton, South Dakota. As a solo practitioner, she will have a sharpened focus on doing prairie-inspired residential design.


Mannes Homstad has worked in the design and construction industry for over twenty years, serving as the lead architect on projects ranging from deluxe custom homes to 25,000 sf educational buildings. After beginning her career in the Twin Cities, she and her family moved to Yankton in 2006. Since that time she has worked as a registered architect for Mannes Architects, the office founded by her father, Glenn, in 1982. Sarah has a B.S. degree from Vanderbilt University and a Master of Architecture degree from Iowa State University.


Today, Sarah focuses primarily on residential work ~ from distinctive & spacious custom homes to efficient & sustainable tiny homes. Want to overhaul your existing home? She can help with that, too. Her design inspirations are the land and people of the wind-swept prairie we call home. 


Sarah’s goal has always been to provide thorough, personalized services and balanced, cohesive designs. That will never change!


“I'm excited about this next chapter in my design career and am looking forward to many more years of helping create beautiful and beloved buildings.”
