Presenting AN Interior’s Top 50 architects of 2021

Low Design Office combines humble materials and regional vernaculars with a commitment to design equity and sustainability. (Chase Daniel)

There is a lot new to AN Interior’s annual Top 50 list, now in its fourth iteration. Nearly half of the collected architects and designers appear for the first time, and the scope has widened to include practices from all regions of the United States, as well as parts of Canada and Mexico. Meanwhile, the represented firms span the full range of experience, from promising upstarts to well-established offices. We find that mix to be not only compelling but also productive, contributing to a more inclusive vision of interior practice. We hope that you do, too.
