Steve Billingsley founded Billingsley/Architecture in 1990 after having worked for several well-regarded architectural firms in the Chattanooga area. We are a small firm, proudly celebrating twenty-one years in business this year. We strive to listen well and to craft a design that exceeds the expectations of our clients. 

Our portfolio includes commercial offices, educational facilities, religious institutions, industrial facilities, healthcare clinics, restaurants, veterinary hospitals, retail, governmental, custom residential and a broad range of master planning and restoration.

Billingsley/Architecture believes in a team based architectural and construction process, stressing unique solutions to each architectural challenge. We collaborate with talented engineers and consultants as needed during the design process and stay involved during construction. When a project is being built, we view our role as helping the contractors to understand the design vision that we have developed with our clients, and we are serious about being the advocate of our clients. 

Our team at Billingsley/Architecture is experienced in the Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) process. Our in-house LEED Accredited Professionals (AP) can provide customized LEED services for your project. If you are looking to incorporate environmentally responsible building design ideas or desire full LEED AP services for registration and certification; the team at Billingsley/Architecture will work with you to implement the program of LEED services that is right for your project. 

A high percentage of Billingsley/Architecture's work is for clients that the firm has served previously. Frequently, we are asked to adapt and renovate facilities as past clients' businesses evolve. We take pride in the fact that Billingsley/Architecture has been recommended by other members of our industry; interior designers, consulting engineers, contractors, even other architects. 

Our mission is to meet our clients' needs and exceed their expectations. We desire to make each client feel like they are our only client, through diligent service and individualized attention. We would welcome the opportunity to serve you and your organization in this manner.
