Scott Garvin founded Garvin Design Group as a local architecture, interiors, and planning firm in 2003 with a vision to provide client-driven design solutions using a more collaborative delivery model. Partners Mark Timbes, Terry Buchmann, and David Sickinger soon joined him later that same year.
In many ways, the story of Garvin Design Group’s growth parallels Columbia’s revitalization; the firm’s milestone projects are some of the city’s most significant developments over the past 20 years. Among these are Mast General Store, Olympia & Granby Mills, 701 Whaley, Palmetto Compress, City Market, Central Energy, and the University of South Carolina’s Patterson Hall and Honors College. The firm has grown to a staff of 18 and boasts expertise in multiple project sectors and more than 60 awards for design and community impact.
Celebrating its 20th anniversary this summer, Garvin Design Group is proud to be part of Columbia’s ongoing renaissance.
