Founded in 1991 by Principal Gary Everton, EOA Architects is a majority women owned architectural, interior design and urban planning firm located in Nashville, Tennessee. Striving for a better tomorrow today, EOA positively impacts individual lives and shapes communities through the creation of sustainable and award-winning projects in a variety of specialty areas.

EOA is driven by a passion to improve people’s lives through architecture by collaborating with our clients and design partners while being inclusive for all people. Our goal is to contribute to making the world a better place through the way we and our projects maximize a positive impact on people’s lives and minimize the negative impact on our global environment. We believe architecture should stylistically be designed to be of its time – providing a visual diary of the day’s culture, but predicated with a certain amount of tension between invention and memory thus evoking a coalesced experience that is both exciting and familiar. We believe building designs can and should give voice to the spirit of place and the sensations it wishes to provoke, giving way to spaces that are both intellectually and visually stimulating. We recognize the desire for humans to feel at ease in their environments. Our architecture aims to balance complex building systems and technology with designs that are empathetic to the user experience.

Community Involvement

We are proud of the non-profits we work with both in our studio as well as our commitments outside the office. EOA has a personal connection to our community as well as those entities making our communities better; for individuals, families and those in our city that are the most vulnerable and at-risk. It is for these reasons we donate our services and our personal time to assist each of them toward reaching their goals.
