DP3 Architects has been named the 2023 Firm of the Year by AIA South Carolina, an organization of the American Institute of Architects. The award recognizes notable achievements in design excellence, contribution to the profession of architecture, and continuity of service to the public. This recognition is considered the highest honor that AIASC can bestow upon a South Carolina architectural firm.

“We are honored to receive this recognition from AIA South Carolina” said Brian Thomas, Principal & CEO of DP3 Architects. “While this award may have our name on it, it is really the partnership that we have had with our clients that has allowed us to produce designs that we are proud of. This award honors them as well as our 3 founding principals and the nearly 200 team members throughout the years who have helped to build the firm to what it is. As we near our 40th anniversary we look forward to continuing to create meaningful spaces that have a positive impact on our community.”

Established in 1984, the DP3 Architects founding principals sought to create a firm of designers that shared a passion for the craft and a spirit of collaboration. Firm leadership has since expanded to include Principals Brian Thomas, Meg Terry, Ben Urueta, and Michael Pry. Now a team of 35, the firm has retained that creative spirit and a shared value around the philosophy of “Architecture by Team” – a belief and commitment to everyone having a seat at the table to solve problems and deliver transformative designs that connect people and enrich communities. From the very beginning, DP3 Architects’ focus has and continues to be on positively impacting communities. The firm strives to model civic engagement within the industry and beyond through participation, membership, sponsorship, and donation of our time and services.

For DP3 Architects, this award celebrates the firm’s project design work, our dedication to our clients, and a supportive culture created and enjoyed by our team members.

“We are exceptionally grateful to be the recipient of the AIA South Carolina Firm Award,” said Meg Terry, Principal & CMO of DP3 Architects. “This recognition is a coveted industry and professional acknowledgement that speaks to both the culture and the group of talented design professionals that made this award possible.”
