We build places for people.

Our work enhances lives. We craft beautiful buildings that celebrate their native places, providing a framework for the life that occurs within and around them. Our work unfolds at every scale, harmoniously integrating interiors and buildings with neighborhoods and communities. As signatory to the AIA 2030 Commitment, we embrace our responsibility as stewards of the environment, crafting sustainable solutions to ensure the health and wellness of communities today and in the future.

Our Process

We celebrate design’s ability to solve problems, and the best solutions come from truly understanding our clients’ challenges. We listen to our clients and see them as collaborators in the design process. Extending this collaboration to the communities in which we live and work, we seek to draw out a common vision from a diversity of voices. Our studio was founded on the belief that such diversity lends richness to the design process and the buildings that emerge from it.

Our Culture

We have deep roots and a broad perspective. Since 1989, we have worked, lived, and played in New Orleans, one of the most complex and culturally rich places in the United States. Our home serves as a constant inspiration for our work, reminding us what it means to connect deeply with a place while maintaining a global outlook. Our studio itself is a diverse group of people from all over the world, a resonant gathering of experiences and expertise. We are curious and determined. We nurture a culture that encourages a spirit of inquiry and attracts inquisitive people.

Community

Community Section​

Community

Design is powerful. It can be employed in service of or in opposition to the common good. As designers, we play an indispensable role in realizing a more equitable future. Good design is also a collaborative act. For a project to serve and empower its community, the voices of that community must be heard and integrated into the design process. Our work strives to create places where people can see their identities and stories reflected in their everyday surroundings. Accordingly, we are accountable to our clients but responsible to many.

Commitment

Established in 1989, EskewDumezRipple has transformed from a local firm doing nationally recognized work to a national firm that has retained its local roots. Recipients of the prestigious 2014 Architecture Firm Award, we have continued to find meaningful ways to shape community and the profession at large. The resulting body of work—ranging from intimate interiors to large scale urban planning projects—reflects the firm’s focus on civic life regardless of scale, budget, scope, or complexity. Building upon the legacy of our founder Allen Eskew, we strive to engage the world as he did—with humility, charm, and a deeply personal commitment to design as craft.
