Founded in 2018, Tippett Sease Baker Architecture is a residential architecture firm formed through friendship and the desire to create beautiful homes. Chris Tippett, John Sease, and David Baker create livable and inspiring spaces by sharing a unified design philosophy, rooted in timeless, vernacular architecture. Drawing on history and their collective knowledge, each of their designs are uniquely suited to their client’s needs and desires.

Having all received their architectural degrees from Auburn University, each of the partners were mentored by Bobby McAlpine, eventually becoming his business partners. During their tenure at McAlpine, Chris, John, and David’s designs were featured in numerous national publications.

Building on their past experience, Chris Tippett, John Sease, and David Baker approach each new project as an opportunity to build something beautiful and to connect with their clients on a personal level. The firm’s size is designed to allow each client to work directly with a principal from inception to completion of their home.

Chris, John, and David have gathered together a talented and like-minded team with a shared belief that the creation of thoughtful architecture lies in the tactile nature of hand drawing. The simple act of drawing by hand allows the heart, hand, and mind to work as one in order to convey and develop the soul of each home.

With projects throughout the country, Tippett Sease Baker Architecture is excited to share their passion for creating approachable, refined, and timeless homes.
