McAlpine Tankersley Architecture - ARCHITECTS
McAlpine Tankersley Architecture is the Montgomery, Alabama-based partnership of Bobby McAlpine, Greg Tankersley, John Sease, Chris Tippett and David Baker. Their practice, now in its 30th year, is described as “nurturing, compassionate, soulful,” and the firm’s architecture, wedding historical precedence with graceful modern living, is a timeless and romantic pursuit of “The Inheritable House”.
In 1997 McAlpine opened an interior design firm adding Ray Booth and Susan Ferrier as partners to form McAlpine Booth & Ferrier Interiors. They maintain offices in Nashville, Atlanta and New York.These two firms work both independently and in frequent collaboration attracting clients from across North America. Their designs include hundreds of residences, a restaurant or two, a chapel, follies in a public park, and a family compound on a private island in the Caribbean.
The internationally recognized work of this innovative design team has been featured in Architectural Digest, Veranda, House Beautiful, Southern Accents, Arts & Antiques, Southern Living, House and Garden (both US and British editions), Metropolitan Home, Traditional Home, The New York Times and on Home and Garden Television (HGTV). They are listed on Architectural Digest’s AD100 and Elle Decor’s A-List.
Having always produced custom furniture, Mr. McAlpine debuted his own furniture line, McAlpine Home, in 2002 with upholstered pieces by Lee Industries in North Carolina and English-made case goods from MacRae in Atlanta.
In his best-selling book from Rizzoli International, McAlpine speaks poignantly from his head and heart about everyone’s personal search for home. Armed with the perspective of a southerner and an arsenal of architectural experience, he reveals his thoughts on grace, the human condition, tenderness of place and what we know to be true in our lives, all based on his body of work created over the last three decades.
The firm makes its home in Montgomery’s Old Cloverdale neighborhood only a few yards from where Bobby began the firm 30 years earlier. Designed by the firm, their office is located in an award-winning New Urbanist infill development built on the site of the old A&P neighborhood grocery store.
