After years of working at conventional architecture firms, followed by a sabbatical as a stay-at-home mom, Margaret Gaughan Upton parlayed her experiences into a new architectural design concept.
In 2009 Margaret established Upton Architecture; a consortium of independent architects and interior designers who seek a balance between work and home. Operating from home based offices throughout the DC area, Upton Architecture offers clients a full service architectural practice with lower overhead and a smaller carbon footprint. She and her talented group of designers use the knowledge of what it takes to juggle family and career to create beautiful, efficient, and comfortable homes for their clients.
The “world headquarters” is in Kensington, Maryland’s Parkwood neighborhood where Margaret is your first point of contact and is with you through to completion. A knowledgeable and personable leader, she understands her clients’ needs and rolls up her sleeves to provide contractors support to keep the project running smoothly.
