About Us

Moody Nolan is much more than an architecture firm. At heart, we’re entrepreneurs. We adapt our talents quickly to address each client’s unique vision. In doing so, we create functional yet iconic design statements that respond to ever-evolving spaces, aesthetics and site dynamics. Simply put, spaces that perform and inspire.


Our firm designs more than $750 million of building construction each year. As the largest African American owned and managed firm in the country, we maintain a strong commitment to diversity in our staff, as well as our approach to solving client problems. Our expertise in a broad range of industries allows us to think inventively and design solutions that are responsive to client needs.

As creative problem solvers, we meet you where you are, giving every client access to the right people and thinking, at just the right time. Headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, we have offices in Chicago, Cleveland, Covington, Dallas, Houston, Indianapolis, Nashville, and Washington, DC.
