Shep Houston, AIA, is a residential architecture firm that has served Philadelphia and the Main Line since 1984.

In three decades of practice, the firm has acquired experience in a large number of projects, including residences, offices, church expansions, restaurants, nursing homes, and recently, a veterinary hospital.

Our choice now to specialize in residential design has grown out of a commitment to working closely with homeowners throughout the process of design and construction. The spaces we create are inspired by an understanding of
individual lifestyles which comes from this close collaboration.

We strongly believe that a successful architectural project is a team effort. Our ability to work cooperatively with all the players involved in design and construction (family members, technical consultants, township officials, and contractors) contributes to the smooth completion of projects, resulting in many repeat clients and an excellent record of referrals. The larger community has acknowledged the firm with awards, publication of projects and professional recognition.
