Robert Paxton  AIA


Upon earning his Bachelor of Architecture and Master of Architecture at Virginia Polytechnic Institute, Bob joined Browne, Eichman and Dalgliesh, P.C. in 1981. He was subsequently named a partner in 1985.

Over four decades in architecture have afforded Bob experience in a broad range of projects, from farm and estate, for which he is most widely known, to historic preservation and commercial. His work, regardless of genre, evokes a timeless elegance through the synthesis of thoughtful detailing, enduring materials, abundant natural light, and harmonious connections between indoor and outdoor spaces. Notable projects that illustrate the breadth of his experience include: the renovation of Powhatan County Courthouse, listed on the Virginia Landmarks Register and the National Register of Historic Places, which earned a design award from the Virginia Society AIA; Keswick Hall and Golf Club, twice named the number one small resort in the mainland United States by Conde Nast; and Crow Holdings’ corporate headquarters at Old Parkland in Dallas, Texas, a classically inspired office campus, that garnered the 2019 John Staub Award in Commercial Architecture. His work has been featured in Architectural Digest, Southern Accents, The Wall Street Journal, House and Garden, Vogue, USA Today, Home & Design, Southern Home, Virginia Living, Albemarle, and Inform.
