Rooted in the belief that great design is the result of asking the right questions and truly listening to the answers, Baskervill offers creative architectural, interior design, and MEP engineering solutions to a varied client base, from hospitality to corporate, healthcare, manufacturing and cultural institutions. Founded in 1897, today Baskervill is one of the nation’s oldest continually operating architectural firms.

We’ve called Richmond, Va., home for more than a century, but in 2016, we opened an office in the heart of downtown Washington D.C. It’s all part of an effort to better serve our clients as we tackle exciting new projects throughout the country.

Our team is a diverse group of architects, interior designers, and engineers who are bold and collaborative, fueled by a passion for the profession and a fondness for strong coffee. While a sense of history grounds us, it’s the idea that design can solve the problems of the future that keeps us inspired. We’re out to start a conversation about what great design really means and how it can transform the guest and patient experience, wake up tired workplaces, and revitalize entire neighborhoods.

We don’t create in a vacuum. We know that great design is about more than beautiful buildings, setting trends or serving egos. At the end of the day, it’s about people—all kinds of people, with different needs, desires, and stories to tell—and everyone deserves access to it. With imagination and the will to try, great design can happen for any client, in any place, at any time. We know, because we do it every day.
