Alabama is home to incredible architectural talent. With amazing residential architects throughout the state, many of Alabama’s neighborhoods are full of marvels of taste and style. While it is difficult to narrow down such a notable list of industry experts, we have created a list of five commercial and residential Alabama architecture firms that you need to know.

“Dungan’s creative work can been seen in his native South, and throughout North and Central America. Recognized for his clean and modern approach to traditional vernaculars and classical architecture, he is a fresh voice in the industry. In addition to his architecture, he brings passion, depth and an endless enthusiasm for the people he works with. Jeffrey has been honored with numerous awards from the American Institute of Architects as well as the 2017 Southeast Architect of the Year award by Veranda Magazine and ADAC. The Institute of Classical Architecture and Art named him a Shutze fellow in 2015, and in 2018 he was a recipient of a prestigious Palladio Award, the only national award for classical architecture.”
“Since 1999, Nequette Architecture & Design has tackled community-focused projects including mixed-use town centers, multi-family housing, infill commercial spaces in urban settings, and market-rate residential neighborhoods—always with the goal to solve problems, create a sense of place, and foster relationships with clients, designers, and the people who build their lives in the spaces we create.
As part of our commitment to community, the firm moved to Downtown Birmingham in 2016. The Thomas Building—a renovation and restoration of what once was the W.S. Brown Mercantile Building and the former Harold’s Furniture building on 2nd Avenue North—encapsulates our passion for mixed-use design, featuring two retail fronts, loft apartments and office spaces, and Nequette Architects’ new home on the top floor. This is what we are all about: building up the communities we live in and telling the unique story of a place through authentic craftsmanship.”
“Krumdieck A+I Design has provided distinctive design solutions for a wide range of commercial and residential project types since its formation in 1993.
During that time, our firm has earned a reputation for commitment to design excellence, attention to detail, and responsiveness to the needs of our clients. Our staff of four professionals, including two registered architects, combines a wealth of major commercial project experience with an extensive background in fine residential design. This unique combination lends itself to highly personalized attention while ensuring quality, project performance, sensitive to budget and schedule. To create and individualized design, we begin by listening.”
“Inspired by the rural and agrarian sensibilities of his rural childhood landscape, Paul Bates naturally gravitated towards architecture. He earned a BA in architecture at Auburn University in Alabama, and continues to strive for honest and authentic results in all of his work. With an eye towards simplicity and a love for the artful meshing of textures, he seeks to capture the romance of a house evolving over time. Whether it be a finely crafted home, or an elegant chair to rest, Paul’s work is grounded by tradition and celebrates life with a modern point of view.”
