A personal note from William T. Baker

Award-Winning Residential Designer

For over three decades I've had the privilege of redefining beautiful homes as one of the leading international authorities focused on the traditions of architectural excellence. Working in a number of diverse styles, it is my pleasure to discuss your next residential or commercial project.

My work has been widely featured in print and broadcast media and is fully illustrated in my books, New Classicists and Great American Homes Vols. 1, 2 & 3. My architecture reflects my passion for the classical traditions with a fresh approach that is relevant for today’s lifestyle demands. The hallmarks of my architecture embody extraordinary attention to the details of design and craftsmanship combined with a keen eye for scale and proportion.

I personally invite you to contact us to discuss your next project whether new construction, a significant remodel, or the preservation or adaptive reuse of a historical structure. Enjoy a complimentary design consultation to discuss bringing your dream home to life.

Limestone Chateau

When all the forces of the architect’s creativity are combined with an owner’s zeal and vision, a special magic occurs which produces a work of enduring quality. This home represents such a moment in time and now stands as a testimony to the timelessness of French classicism and its ability to adapt itself to a new time and place in the world.


Johnson House

Built on a large property overlooking a lake, this symmetrical Georgian Revival-style house of painted brick is an elegant home for this third-generation Spartanburg family and their three sons. The outdoor terrace and grill area off the family room is an inviting place to entertain family and friends while overlooking the lawn that leads down to the lake.


Rock Point

For this active family, the home’s agenda was to provide every possible amenity for entertainment and sport within the confines of the property. It is not apparent from the handsome exterior, but within the house is an indoor putting green, indoor pool, full Spa, exercise room, regulation size basketball court, home theater, wine cellar, bar, and band room - all on the lower level.
