Born in an Alabama sawmill town, Bobby McAlpine designed his first house at the age of 5. Architect, romantic, poet and entrepreneur, he envisions home as a timeless, graceful and emotionally evocative place. From the time he founded the firm in 1983, he has realized this ideal in a diverse array of traditional styles and regional vernaculars for clients all over the country and abroad. Today, known simply as McALPINE, the firm embraces a brilliant and eclectic family of architects and interior designers with offices in Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia and New York. Bobby’s critically acclaimed book, The Home Within Us, remains a Rizzoli best seller, and Poetry of Place, was released in October 2017. His popular furniture line, McAlpine Home, is available nationwide.
