Since our founding in 1985, Hastings has been deeply committed to design and our community producing award-winning work that is both accretive and impactful to our clients and the communities we serve. Our passionate and creative staff of over 75 architects, interior designers, and planners collaborate together in our open studio at 225 Polk Avenue in Downtown Nashville. Hastings is consistently recognized nationally for our work and the progressive firm culture. In 2018, the Journal of the American Institute of Architects, ARCHITECT magazine, named Hastings #1 in Business and #11 Overall on their annual ARCHITECT 50 ranking. We’re honored to be on this prestigious nationwide list for the fifth year in a row, and to be the highest-ranking firm based in the Southeast. Hastings places equal importance on the design work we create for our clients and our people. This duality is the foundation of the firm culture. With great clients we are able to explore and create great work, and with a talented and passionate team of professionals, we attract and retain great clients. The two are inextricably connected. Our work is intentionally diverse in scale, typology, and style. Our buildings do not represent a particular “Hastings style” but instead they are the successful manifestation of creative thinking colliding with the parameters of each individual project. Our projects tell a story, engage their occupants, and contribute positively to the environment and the greater community.
