“The greatest satisfaction we get from our work is making people happy, which comes from interpreting the client’s dream, turning it into a reality, and creating a home they will experience and enjoy with family and friends every day of their lives.”
–Mark Hughes & Bulent Baydar
A full-service architecture, interior design and landscape architecture firm, Harrison Design is dedicated to improving communities by creating spaces that are highly functional, refined and enduring. Their residential expertise encompasses a range of architectural styles, from traditional to modern. Through the years, they have crafted a reputation for delivering quality and designing homes that will last for generations.
Founded in 1991, Harrison Design has seven locations across the U.S. While their Washington, D.C. studio works independently, they are able to draw on the experience, know-how and resources of the architects and designers company-wide. This deep bench distinguishes Harrison Design from other firms.
In 2005, Harrison Design began designing gracious residences embodying the principles of classical architecture in Northern Virginia and metropolitan D.C., including Georgetown. As they attracted more clients, Bulent Baydar, AIA, established the Harrison Design D.C. office in 2010 and was joined in 2012 by Mark D. Hughes, AIA, who manages the office full-time. Today, they continue to create high-end homes and estates in the Mid-Atlantic region. Harrison Design’s work is not restricted to award-winning residential design. Nicolas Charbonneau leads the firm’s D.C.-based national sacred architecture practice, which earned a Bulfinch Award from the Institute of Classical Architecture and Art New England Chapter in 2022.
Harrison Design’s Washington, D.C. office was honored as “Hall of Fame Architect” in Home & Design 2017 Designers’ Choice Awards and earned Outstanding Achievement in Renovation from Peerless Rockville for the historical renovation of 105 N. Adams Street. Their work is frequently featured in leading publications.
