Founded in 2001, McLelland Architecture has produced designs for several dozen projects of various scales across multiple building types, ranging from small-scale historic residential restoration to new multi-floor mixed commercial-condominium development. Other projects have included restaurants, churches, retail space, and a municipal park pavilion.

The firm’s experience includes a collaborative effort with Atlanta urban designers Urban Collage on a campus renovation for the Kentuck Museum Association in Northport, Alabama.

McLelland Architecture is committed to the realization of a progressive Southern architecture that combines a sense of cultural and physical rootedness with a commitment to sustainable design and construction.
