OUR STORY

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.

Today, we are an ever-growing team of designers and problem solvers bringing people together and nurturing communities with thoughtful planning and beautiful design.
