Richard Leggin Architects, LLC

Richard A. Leggin, AIA

A lifelong interest in building and design  inspired Richard Leggin to become an architect. He launched his practice more than 30 years ago with a focus on custom residential work and a desire to help people with their homes. Much of his early work involved updating historic buildings in Georgetown and Dupont Circle; today, Leggin and his staff focus on major renovations and new homes throughout the Mid-Atlantic region and other areas of the country.

“Our goal is to provide exceptional service to our clients as we guide and assist them through the design and building processes,” he says. “Excellence in design, drawings, communication and professional practices is also a core value.”

The architect and his colleagues take a collaborative, interpersonal approach. “Our clients become fully engaged; when we work through options and possibilities together, better ideas happen,” he explains. “The final design is as much our clients’ as it is ours.

“I’m fortunate and grateful that people entrust me with their homes; it’s a big responsibility,” Leggin continues. “And I especially appreciate clients who return for help on subsequent projects—some after many years.”

Richard Leggin Architects has created hundreds of elegant and inspired homes. A custom home by the firm was published in the Spring 2020 issue of Home & Design.
