About Us

"Together with an exceptional staff, I am personally involved in every step of the design and construction process. We create homes that are carefully considered and beautifully detailed inside and out. Come visit us or give us a call and let's get the conversation started!"

--Richard Leggin

The mission at Richard Leggin Architects is to successfully guide and assist our clients through the building process from concept to completion, with the goal of creating homes that are inspired, elegant, sustainable and timeless: each one as unique as its owner.

Richard Leggin Architects was founded in 1983 with the intention of providing clients with professional top-quality architectural and construction services.  Our projects have earned numerous awards, including: Remodeling's Whole House Project Merit Award, Home Book's Design Excellence Award (in four categories), Remodeling Magazine and NAHB Remodelors Council Remodeling and Addition Renaissance Design Merit Award, Best Traditional Home Award, Suburban Maryland Builder Assocition's Project of the Year Award.

Because we remain a relatively small practice, our clients receive the benefit of the direct involvement of the principal on all phases of their projects. We feel that this continuity of service and close attention to our client's needs throughout the course of each project has been an important contributor to the success of the practice, and accounts for the long-lasting relationships we maintain with many of our clients.

As we enjoy good working relationships with many builders, contractors, engineers, suppliers, and specialty consultants, we have the necessary support and resources to provide the broad range of services which may be required on any given project. 

While the majority of our projects are located in Bethesda, Potomac, McLean, Great Falls and Washington, DC, we are fully prepared to devote our professional services to your project wherever it is located. Give us a call today and let's get the conversation started.
