Tobias M. Sullivan Architects moves into downtown Annapolis

| December 19, 2014 | 1 Comment

Open For BusinessTobias M. Sullivan Architects, a firm with nearly a decade of experience in historic preservation and contemporary design, has moved into new offices on Annapolis’ Main Street.

The office space, located above 159 Main St., places the company at the heart of the Annapolis Historic District and provides ample architectural inspiration with its view of the historic Maryland State House. The office also reflects how buildings adapt to different uses­­—even unexpected ones. The firm’s owner, Tobias Sullivan, notes that his desk sits where the pins for a bowling alley were once placed, one of the many incarnations of the c.1915 building.

Sullivan says the decision to move the firm was easy. “While other businesses have been drifting away from downtown Annapolis, I feel as if this is the perfect location for our firm, which has a strong foundation in historic preservation. The new offices also allow us to better serve our clients, with a conference room and expanded studio space.”

Before becoming an architect, Sullivan was a restoration carpenter for the National Trust. Though he’s lived in Annapolis since 2002, his largest historic projects have been concentrated in Washington D.C. He has consulted and worked on National Register and National Historic sites, including President Lincoln’s Cottage, the Old Naval Observatory, and the Woodrow Wilson House. Sullivan’s projects also include contemporary homes and additions, and he is looking to expand the practice’s portfolio of civic, commercial, and institutional projects.

Sullivan has a master’s degree in architecture from Miami University and a bachelor’s degree in historic preservation from Mary Washington College. He and his wife (and fellow architect) Nicole Rauzi live in Annapolis’ Eastport neighborhood where he serves on the Eastport Civic Association’s Architectural and Zoning Committee.
