FOUNDER

Benjamin Salling, AIA, has worked in architecture and design for over twenty-three years. Through numerous collaborations with some of the nation's most respected design firms, he has built a deep understanding of the built environment. 

Ben developed an early appreciation for the power of architecture and traditional town planning methods as he watched his hometown of Chattanooga, Tennessee, undergo a significant transformation during the early 1990s. Summers spent in the Florida Panhandle meant he also witnessed the rise of New Urbanism at developments including Seaside and Rosemary Beach. These formative experiences inspired Ben to pursue an education based on traditional architecture and town planning methods at theUniversity of Miami. Ben began his career in the office of the school's dean –Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, DPZ.

Turning his focus to architecture, Ben later accepted a position in New York with Robert A.M. Stern Architects in2006, where he spent several years working primarily as a designer on over thirty projects at various scales around the world. Determined to have a well-rounded set of life and work experiences, Ben has also worked with Ferguson & Shamamian Architects, Peter Pennoyer Architects, and Patrick Ahearn Architect.

Ben currently maintains licenses in Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, and Florida; and is certified by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB), facilitating rapid reciprocal registration in most locations throughout the US and Canada.
