WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Our studio in downtown Tupelo looks a lot different than it did when the firm was founded fifty-tow years ago, but our mission is the same: being idea generators, good communicators, and creative solutionist in a complex process. architectureSOUTH is in its third generation of leaders and our team remains focused on maintaining a tradition of excellence while building a portfolio that we and our clients are proud of.
Ten years ago, as a hobby of sorts, Linda Smith and Scott Emison offered to do some private, pro-bono, and residential projects outside of the envelope of the commercial-based walls of architectureSOUTH. This work fueled a passion of creativity and opportunity, and in 2019, they officially rebranded that growing business as a dual platform offering under the name of Prairie South Design Co. This journey has yielded projects internationally, as well as custom homes and private work across the State of Mississippi.
architectureSOUTH has the organizational depth, expertise, and experience to achieve the best possible success for your project. Under the founding principal A.J. “Gus” Staub, and in Terri’s leadership over 30 years, the firm has built a solid reputation for performance in servicing a broad spectrum of client needs and scopes of work, and we are proud that over 80 percent of the firm’s work is from repeat clients.
