Client Endorsements

“Having had the opportunity to work with other architects on other projects, I have come to appreciate and yearn for the experience I continually have with Street Dixon Rick on every project, no matter the size, scope or budget.” - Sarah Sudak, Associate Vice President for Student Affairs & Dean of Students Middle Tennessee State University, Murfreesboro, Tennessee

“Baird has been the lead architect for Harpeth Hall School on five or six projects over a 9-10 year period. He takes a great deal of time to study the needs particular to each project, talking to all constituents involved, and to assure that those needs are met. His ideas are creative and the resulting buildings are not only stunning and beautiful but also functional. His team is delightful to work with, detail oriented, punctual and of the highest integrity. I highly recommend Baird and his team at Street Dixon Rick.” - Anne King, Director of Finance & Operations The Harpeth Hall School, Nashville, Tennessee

“Our new library is absolutely breathtaking. The natural light just pours in and enhances the library experience. We are blessed with a beautiful library which some have said could also be a sanctuary because it’s filled with peace and tranquility. It’s been a dream to work with Street Dixon Rick Architecture.” - Adele Holloway, Director of Facilities Oak Hill School, Nashville, Tennessee

“A church building is not just a comfortable place to sit. It tells a story, gives witness to a theology, and helps to form an identity. The beauty and scope of this new building is a witness to who we worship and what we think important. It is a gift to the city and to generations who will follow us and worship God within these walls. Good work, folks.” - Julian Gordy, Pastor at time of design St. Andrew Lutheran Church, Franklin, Tennessee

“The main thing I want you to know about Baird is that he deeply understands how to interpret Reformed theology into architectural space. We talked with a lot of architects who knew something about the aesthetics of church buildings – and especially church sanctuaries – in general, but Baird stood head above shoulders in his understanding and in his ability to articulate how a Reformed sanctuary and its attendant spaces should look and function. Because I think there are few firms in the country who possess this understanding, I would highly recommend Baird’s firm to any Presbyterian building committee seeking to build a space that helps shape a congregation in the Reformed faith. The firm is both open to being consultants to churches who want to work with local architects as well as to serving as the principal firm engaged for a project.” - Jim Kitchens, Pastor at time of design & construction Second Presbyterian Church, Nashville, Tennessee

“Street Dixon Rick has done a good job with buildings that fit with the campus, both at Sewanee and here. They did exquisite work to create a modern building that fit with our traditional stone-based buildings on campus. They come up with great designs. Their work is on time, they keep projects moving, they’re here when they need to be and there’s good follow-up.” - Tom Kepple, President Juniata College, Juniata, Pennsylvania

“For 20 years, I have worked continuously with Street Dixon Rick on more than 80 diverse campus housing projects here at Vanderbilt. They have become a valued partner. I highly recommend Street Dixon Rick for your work.” - Ann Nielson, Director for Facilities Management Office of Housing & Residential Education Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tennessee
