About Powell Architecture + Building Studio

Powell Architecture + Building Studio is a boutique design build firm located in East Nashville. We have one mission: creating a collaborative and creative, one-stop design build studio that can take a client’s vision from conception through opening.  We strive to treat each client and their project with the personal care and attention that produces a long term relationship and a design that not only meets the client's needs but also enriches the life of both the client and the surrounding community. 

You will not find "egos" in the studio, but you will find a group of people that really care about listening to you and working with you to design an end product that is both beautiful and functional. This is your building and your idea. We want to help you realize it by listening and responding with thoughtful design. Call us at 615-320-5000 or email us to set up a time to meet and share your idea with us.


Powell Building Studio was started out of a desire to serve the client from the beginning of the design phase all the way through move in day.  Powell Building Studio takes a collaborative approach to design and construction that we believe produces a building or space that is better able serve the client's functional and aesthetic needs while staying within the budget. We are able to do this by offering a "cost-plus-open-book" type of construction service. We show our clients the numbers from the very beginning of the process, and include them in the process as much as they would like to be involved. 

We liken this approach to the days of the "Master Builder" where there was essentially one entity that ensured the fluidity of the building process from beginning of design till the last stone was laid. By having Powell Architecture and Building Studio under the same roof we are able to achieve this approach in today’s world. Please call us at 615-320-5000 or email us to set up a time to meet.
