Your Partner in Creating Lasting Places

Twenty Years of Partnering with Our Clients



As founding partner of Allison Architects, Iā€™m very proud to announce that 2016 marks our 20th anniversary of practicing architecture, historic preservation, planning, and interior design in Arkansas. The creation of Allison Architects was based on the desire to provide highly personalized services by a small team of talented and dedicated professionals to create exceptional design.


Then and now, we believe that good design begins with listening carefully to our clients.  Only through close partnering with them can a design solution emerge that is unique to their needs and aspirations ā€“ on time and within budget. And this holds true for the smallest projects to the largest. At Allison, design is a circular, interactive, and collaborative process with our client helping shape the final iteration. This process has evolved into our core belief:


Our clients are, in fact, our partners in creating lasting places.


The resulting body of work covering 20 years of practice includes a diversity of project types from residential to large academic projects. During this time, we have consistently received awards for design excellence from the American Institute of Architects on both state and regional levels. We have also been recognized for interior design by the American Society of Interior Designers. All of these projects share a dedicated effort to create an exceptional design solution, and all share exceptional clients.


We would like to thank all of our clients, who for the past 20 years have partnered with us to create these lasting places ā€“ places that will continue to function well into the future and places that people want to occupy. Today, I can say with great pleasure, that we have the best team ever in place to continue to serve you for the next 20 years and beyond, as Allison + Partners.
