The Foundations of Architecture & Engineering

It’s not just about creating a unique architectural presence; a building also has to fit effectively into its environment. Diverse considerations, from the intended use to the technical infrastructure, must work together seamlessly. Those are the challenges we live for, while working quickly and efficiently to control project costs.

Phillips Partnership specializes in hospitality, multi-family, retail and mixed-use, but we’ve designed everything from high rises to parking structures. As an energetic, forward-thinking Atlanta-based firm with a national presence, we’ve worked with top developers throughout the U.S. and Canada for more than 20 years.

Our Approach


We start by listening. Our architects and engineers actively welcome input from all stakeholders. We don’t force our ideas on the project. We start with the vision and requirements that we’re given, and use our experience and knowledge to take things to the next level. You won’t find big egos here, just people working hard to create an architectural legacy that exceeds your expectations.

Our Process


The journey is as important as the destination. Companies come back to work with PHILLIPS again and again because we make the process a positive and easy experience for them. We’re collaborative, open-minded, and responsive. An ongoing dialog and a trusting sense of teamwork ensure that every project goes smoothly.

Our Implementation


We are drawn to Architecture and Engineering as a tradition of skill and experience. Whether designing a new high rise hotel or a small retail building, PHILLIPS’ precision allows the shared vision of the client and all shareholders to be completely realized and ready for construction. From planning and strategy to design and construction, we deliver solutions that provide value.

Our Success


We understand there are intricate parts to every project. PHILLIPS believes it’s the details that make up the big picture. Our definition of success is the sum of these details. We respond to project challenges by collaborating with team members to engage our extensive experience and focus on delivering successful results that exceed expectations at every level.
