About Us



DBMC Design is an architectural partnership in Washington DC, established by David Baker and Matthew Corell. With over 28 years of experience, we are focused and committed to making a difference where we live and work.

Taking a hands-on, do-it-yourself approach, we are involved throughout the entire design process giving every project — whether a building or piece of furniture — the personal attention it requires. We firmly believe good design is the product of effective collaboration and dialog with the client. We have the experience and creativity to develop unique and pragmatic solutions that meet our clients’ needs while staying on budget.
