Owner/Principal Architect: Evan Lippincott, AIA
Evan Lippincott has been designing exquisite buildings since 1982 when he began his architectural residency. He completed his architectural licensing in 1986 and started Lippincott Architects in 1991. The son of a noted Philadelphia Quaker architect, Mr. Lippincott grew up immersed in architecture. He lived in a mid-century modern house his father designed and attended Quaker Meeting in Georgian/Colonial Revival Meetinghouses in the Philadelphia area. By the age of twelve, he knew that he was meant to follow in his father’s footsteps and be an architect.
He started his architecture career in London, England, after receiving a Carpenters’ Company award for excellence in architecture design. When he returned from England, he wored as a Façade architect for the four block Victorian main street project in Chambersburg, PA. While there, he lived in a stunning 1880’s Queen Anne, and also renovated an 1860’s estate home and an 1840’s farm house.
Evan continued his career in the Washington, D.C. area designing custom residential homes and commercial buildings for Shinberg-Levinas Architects and then Stanmyer Noel Architects. He left that firm to launch his own practice, focusing on the type of architecture he felt most passionate about – making places where people feel at ease and uplifted. Since 1991, he has designed and renovated numerous homes and Quaker Meetinghouses in the Washington, D.C. area and beyond.
Mr. Lippincott’s Quaker Meetinghouse design experiences began when he completed a master plan and building design for the Annapolis Friends Meeting in the early 90’s and a feasibility study for a large addition to the original building in 2016. He also completed an addition to, and renovations of, Langley Hill Friends Meeting, designed a new Meetinghouse for Midcoast Friends Meeting in Damariscotta Maine, and in 2017, in partnership with Gutierre Alverez (GA), designed a major renovation and addition to Friends Meeting of Washington D.C..
