From the time he founded the firm in 1983, he has realized this ideal in a diverse array of traditional styles and regional vernaculars for clients all over the country. Today known as McALPINE, the firm now embraces a brilliant and eclectic family of professional architects and interior designers with offices in Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, and New York. Along with his furniture line, Bobby is the author of The Home Within Us, the critically acclaimed best-selling book from Rizzoli Publications, and co-author of Art of the House.
