Historical Concepts' Firm Profile

Historical Concepts is proud to provide traditional architecture, planning and place-making services to homeowners, developers and civic clients. The firm was founded in 1982 by James L. Strickland, with a passion for historical architecture and a desire to create great places.

Originally a design/build firm, Historical Concepts consistently demonstrated the benefits of utilizing traditional design and planning in new construction with its classic southern homes and neighborhoods in the metro-Atlanta region. By the early 1990s, as the firm's reputation for quality and attention to architectural detail began to spread throughout the southeast, interest in the firm's architectural services grew. Responding to this demand, and a desire to affect architecture over a broader region, Historical Concepts began to focus exclusively on design.

Today, Strickland continues to guide the firm as its President and is personally involved in the design of all projects. He is joined by Principals Kevin Clark, Andrew Cogar, Aaron Daily, Terry Pylant and Domenick Treschitta who lead design teams hand-picked from the nation's top traditional architecture programs. Todd Strickland is the Managing Partner responsible for overseeing the firm's operations and finances.

Historical Concepts has approximately 30 staff members organized into small design teams referred to as studios. Each studio is led by a Principal which ensures that senior level attention is given every project on a daily basis. Historical Concepts has long employed a controlled growth philosophy and promotions are made from within the firm to ensure design consistency and proven ability. The end result is a family like atmosphere comprised of experienced team members who are adept at working together to provide our clients with the highest levels of design and service.

We consider every project to be a unique and special opportunity, and we approach each with the same passion and desire to create great places that founded Historical Concepts years ago.
