Our Firm

Our Philosophy

At The Crump Firm, we believe our work is about more than providing our full range of services. Our greater goal each day is to continue developing a durable legacy of outstanding works of functionality and beauty, which will stand the test of time, in accordance with our Mission Statement: Creating Inspired Architecture That Endures. We think this is what the great Roman architect and author, Vitruvius (80 BC – 15 BC), intended in his famous quotation that great architecture must be comprised of  “Commodity, Firmness, and Delight” which we interpret as Functionality, Durability, and Beauty.

Offices in Downtown Memphis

After 12 years in the Falls Building, the firm moved into 4000 square feet of the ground floor and mezzanine of 81 Monroe Avenue, in the historic Businessmen’s Club building built in 1908, a building which is one of the leading examples of Beaux Arts architecture in the city.

After launching its Interior Design department in 1993, the firm soon outgrew its space, prompting the owners to purchase the adjoining 83 Monroe building with its four stories comprising 5600 usable square feet.

With both buildings joined at the ground floor and mezzanine, The Crump Firm's present 9,600-square-foot headquarters is largely configured in an open, two-story, vertical studio, inspiring and enabling a high degree of collaboration among architects, designers, and project managers.
