Thank You For 20 Years
We are grateful for the opportunity to be part of so many great projects in our first 20 years as a firm.

CELEBRATING 20 YEARS OF IMPACT

 

In 2003, Garvin Design Group’s founding partners set out with a refocused mission to provide client-driven design solutions through a more collaborative delivery model for architecture, interiors, and planning projects. Twenty years later, the growth of our firm closely parallels the growth of our state: Garvin Design Group’s milestone projects mark significant points in South Carolina’s advancement from the Grand Strand to the Upstate. Our firm now includes 21 team members and boasts expertise in design for education, hospitality, historic preservation, athletics, and commercial spaces alike, earning more than 60 awards for design and community impact across the state and beyond. We are so grateful to the clients, colleagues, and partners who entrusted us to bring their visions to life these past 20 years.

We are celebrating our 20th anniversary both reflecting on the past and imagining the future. In the spirit of gratitude, we are highlighting key moments in our firm’s history and planning exciting ways to give back to the communities who have supported us. Every year has been important to our firm, but we have selected just a handful to represent chapters in the story of our first 20 years. These moments are spotlighted in the timeline below and in the video linked above.

We are also looking forward to “saying thank you” to our local community. Throughout the year, we’ll celebrate our continued commitment to our neighbors and partners through event sponsorships and corporate giving. You can keep up with our year-long 20th-anniversary celebration via the gallery below and our News page.

Whether you are a longtime client, partner, friend, or a new acquaintance, THANK YOU for being the reason we’re able to celebrate 20 years!
