McInturff Architects is a five-person firm based in Bethesda, Maryland. They are dedicated to the making of small to medium-scale, highly crafted residential, commercial and small institutional projects, and are involved throughout the entire project, from programming to complete architectural and interior design. Their process requires considerable interaction with their clients, allowing them to tailor each project to the specifics of each owner.

The firm has intentionally remained small, which allows them to be selective about the work they take on, and to better serve their clients. They believe that this size allows them the combination of flexibility and muscle to undertake projects at a variety of scales while still staying close to their core beliefs. They have all worked together for a long time, during which they have developed a common set of goals and strengths.

The firm has received more than 290 design awards, including a 2003 AIA Institute Honor Award for Interior Architecture for the Martin Shocket residence, a 2005 AIA Institute Honor Award for Regional and Urban Design for their part in the redevelopment of Cady’s Alley, a commercial district in Georgetown, and a 2006 Institute Honor Award for Interior Architecture for the Woolly Mammoth Theatre.

Their projects have been frequently published, locally, nationally, and internationally. The work of the firm is the subject of three monographs published by the Images Publishing Group of Australia — In Detail: McInturff Architects (2001), In Residence: McInturff Architects (2007), and In House: McInturff Architects (2013).
