Chris
Tippett

Chris began his tenure at McALPINE more than 23 years ago working closely with Bobby on the firm’s iconic homes, best described as American interpretations of European country houses. His passion projects include the cabins and cottages whose simplicity and honesty allow for his unique creative gestures. From lakeside retreats to mountain houses, from family compounds to estates, the evidence of his architectural artfulness spans the eastern seaboard from Philadelphia to South Carolina; much of it has been nationally recognized and widely published. Chris has served as Mayor of Cloverdale, an in-town historic neighborhood, and on the Board of Landmarks Foundation. Married for 19 years, Chris shares his renovated ‘60s house with his lovely wife Anne and their two equally beautiful children, Maggie and Fred.

“It is my honor to be my
client’s hands and voice,
to listen to what is said
and unsaid. I discover the
heart of my client and
the essence of their house.
It is a pleasure to turn
a notion into beauty.”
