A different kind of career


Over 30 years ago, Melanie Hennigan joined Grimm + Parker as a newly-registered Architect. Today, she serves as President. Many of our people build their careers here.

A lot has changed since our founding, but not our culture. Grimm + Parker is a firm where people learn, grow, and choose to stay, developing their skills and taking on new responsibilities. Sixty percent of our staff has been with us for over five years, and half of those have been here for more than fifteen years. We think that’s a testament to the power and intimacy of the environment we’ve created.

We’re dedicated to learning, supporting a diversity of people and ideas, and making a difference in our communities. At Grimm + Parker, we’re a different kind of architecture firm.
