Founded in 1972, in Tallahassee, Florida, Elliott Marshall Innes, P.A. (EMI) provides architectural, interior design and planning services to the southeastern region of the United States. Our dedicated staff provides services to many community colleges and universities, K-12 school boards, military bases, medical facilities as well as a broad array of private clients.
EMI approaches each project with the belief that design excellence comes, first and foremost, from addressing and clearly solving the fundamental problems posed by each unique set of project parameters. The firm is not inhibited by any pre-determined ideological boundaries, but rather is committed to letting each project evolve according to the specific characteristics and requirements of the client, the project brief and the geographic location. The firm’s portfolio is diverse from the standpoint of both style and project type. EMI believes that the best architectural work, when appropriate, seeks a balance between those strategies posited by orthodox and mainstream modernism and the qualities inherent in “traditional” design vocabularies. Eschewing to the profession’s recent tendency to specialize, EMI has maintained the traditional role of the architect as a “generalist” and encourage a wide open and unrestricted path towards creating a variety of architectural spaces and places.
