Since their founding in 1985, HASTINGS has been deeply committed to design and community producing award-winning work that is both accretive and impactful to their clients and the communities they serve. HASTINGS’ passionate and creative staff of 75 architects, interior designers, and planners collaborate together in their open studio in Downtown Nashville.
HASTINGS is consistently recognized nationally for their work and progressive firm culture. In 2019, the Journal of the American Institute of Architects, ARCHITECT magazine, named HASTINGS the #3 architecture firm in the United States – the highest ranking firm in the Southeast.
HASTINGS places equal importance on the design work they create for their clients and on their people. This duality is the foundation of their firm culture. With great clients HASTINGS explores and creates great work, and with a talented and passionate team of professionals, they attract and retain great clients. The two are inextricably connected.
The firm’s work is intentionally diverse in scale, typology, and style. Their projects do not represent a particular “HASTINGS style” but instead are each a unique response to site, history, context, and user.
HASTINGS’ projects tell a story, engage their occupants, and contribute positively to the environment and the greater community.
