Firm Profile

We don’t work for you, we work with you.

This is not a spectator sport

Teamwork isn’t just a buzzword at Tipton, it’s how we approach everything. We start by teaming with you to understand what you want to achieve. Then we create an interdisciplinary team of experts and specialists, all of whom know how to work collaboratively, to develop solutions that meet or exceed all of your desires. Even the unexpressed ones.

Aspirations into realities

Any good architect can design a building that is reasonably functional and safe. Our specialty is working with you to turn your aspirations and passions into a three-dimensional building that actually interacts with the people who use it. In the end, good architecture and design isn’t about the architect or designer; it’s about bringing a vision to life for the good of the community. Get in touch to start the conversation

From 1879 to today

There’s a reason that a firm founded in 1879 is still around today. It’s the legacy left by each designer as the firm has grown from designing churches and homes to commercial and educational properties, such as LSU’s Peabody Hall and the Varsity Theater in the 1920s and ‘30s to new student housing today. The traditions and legacy established, as well as many of the same institutions, are still working together 140 years later at Tipton Associates.
