With a residential portfolio spanning more than two decades, Cuppett Kilpatrick practices Architecture and Interior Design, led by Tim Cuppett and Dave Kilpatrick; their award-winning brand of Design is not characterized by a single aesthetic but is governed instead by a single idea: edit.

Each project is rigorously reduced to its essential components, considering first, the owner’s needs, wants and the unique Place the home will occupy. Founding Principal Tim Cuppett focuses on producing daylight balanced interiors with a special regard for scale and volume, while Partner Dave Kilpatrick compliments his skill set with an affinity for graphic composition and a thoughtful assembly of the building components.

Cuppett and Kilpatrick engage on each project from the first pencil stroke to the selection and installation of the final interior elements. Their work, not driven by a singular aesthetic agenda, appeals to both modernists and traditionalists alike.

Sensitive to site and climate, expressing a respect for and drawing inspiration from context. "Consult the genius of the place..." by Alexander Pope is the benchmark quote by which their works take shape.
