Aggregate is a full-service architecture and design firm based in Washington, D.C. Led by husband-and-wife team Mark and Lucia Freeman. Since its founding in 2009, Aggregate has designed, renovated, and expanded numerous properties across the region including residential, restaurant, office, retail, mixed-use, and multi-family buildings.
With experience in both the modernization and restoration of the region’s abundance of historic homes and original concepts, Aggregate uses a collaborative approach to pull together architecture, interior design, construction management, and engineering knowledge to shape the perfect-fit transformation for our residential clients.
Aggregate cultivates partnerships with those who commission, construct, and inhabit the spaces we design, keeping in mind that our work is a collaborative effort. Architecture is capable of transforming experiences and influencing well-being. Our team is driven to both create transformational spaces and steward the creation process responsibly, adding value to our communities, our city, and our clients properties.
Aggregate’s portfolio of commercial and residential architecture projects continues to grow as our team expands its capabilities.
