Richard A. Leggin, AIA

A life-long interest in building and design, along with a propensity for math and engineering, inspired Richard Leggin to become an architect. He launched his own practice more than 30 years ago with a focus on custom residential work and small commercial projects. Many of Leggin’s early projects involved updating historic buildings in Georgetown and Dupont Circle. Today, he and a staff of four focus on renovations and new construction throughout the mid-Atlantic region.

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

The architect and his colleagues take a collaborative, interpersonal approach to every project. “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.
