Our Firm

For over eighty years Dalgliesh Gilpin Paxton Architects has worked in a variety of architectural styles and building types throughout the United States and the Caribbean Islands.  Among our projects are sites of national importance, including the monuments in Washington, D.C., and Monticello.  Our designs respond to each client’s unique site, program, and budget, while respecting the surrounding natural and built environment.  We integrate architecture, interior design, landscape, and craftsmanship to create timeless buildings and interiors with an abundance of natural light and strong connections to the outdoors.  Clients appreciate our collaborative process, attention to detail, and careful budget management.

Bob Paxton, Roger Birle, and Eric Amtmann are the principals of this diverse architectural practice.  One or more principals, complemented by the talents of project architects, interior designers, and support staff, lead each project.  Our team, including LEED accredited professionals, is committed to the highest standards of energy efficiency and sustainability.  Our buildings incorporate the latest proven technologies, including geothermal heating and cooling, high-performance envelope design, and active solar strategies.  In fact, we recently completed our first net-zero energy project.

Our legacy is the realization of our clients’ vision.



“I’ve worked with a lot of architects before, both internationally and in the U.S., and I’ve never seen anyone do it as well as you do.”
