We believe that design matters.
We believe that the design of your home matters the most of all. From the smallest detail to the overall architecture, Dencity homes are holistically designed for lives to be lived in and around them. We achieve this through a close collaboration with our clients, getting to the root of what you love and how you love to live. Gathering this information is what makes each and every Dencity project unique, using our training as architects to marry the emotional and technical elements into one cohesive, livable design.
Dencity homes are modern yet timeless. We believe in designing lasting structures that are well crafted and withstand the test of time. We believe that design, no matter the scale, is inherently equal, and of the pure beauty in how the details come together to create the whole. Because we love what we do, we are invested through the life of our projects from early design through construction to ensure that the finished project is everything we dreamed it to be. This involves exploration and critical thinking, material research, contextual analysis, strong drawings, continuous pricing and construction schedule reviews from design until client move in, and exhaustive construction quality control.
At Dencity, we love what we do and would love to talk with you about designing your home.
Bryan Russell, R.A. After graduating from Mississippi State University in 1990 with a Bachelor of Architecture Degree he embarked on what has now been a 26 year architectural, professional practice. He became a Registered Architect in 1996. Before moving to Atlanta he began his career working in Malibu, California on the design of commercial office buildings and small retail facilities. Having visited Atlanta and fallen in love with the city, he moved and worked designing large commercial office space, small commercial facilities, small retail facilities, country clubs, restaurants, multi-family residential apartments, and residential clubhouses. Because of the diverse background of projects he was able to work on, he found his true passion was in residential projects. And thus, in 2000 Bryan co-founded Dencity to fulfill his desire to design modern residential. Bryan lives with his wife, two sons, and two dogs in Grant Park. When not designing architecture, he loves tennis and coaching his boys’ sport of choice.
Erica Loesing began working with Dencity in 2006 while completing her Masters in Architecture from the Savannah College of Art & Design. She was recently awarded a partnership at the firm. Erica has worked exclusively with Dencity through her professional career, feeling lucky to have found a firm so early on that shares her commitment to thoughtful residential design on a wide variety of scales and budgets. Her love of residential design began as a child, having grown up with a contractor dad and spending a lot of time in the homes he was building. Erica brings a general understanding of the built form to the table along with high level of design. During her education, Erica was awarded the top honor for Outstanding Achievement of her graduating class, was selected as one of two students to present her work to architect Frank Gehry, and invited to contribute renderings to HGTV’s House Hunters. She is a multi-faceted designer, having completed her undergraduate degree in Studio Art, who is constantly inspired and incorporating other mediums into her design work. Architecture is her true passion, achieving her projects through brainstorming and collaborating, collecting ideas and combining them into one holistic experience of the space. Ultimately, she loves designing the spaces where people live their lives, and the smaller, more intimate scale of homes. Erica lives with her husband, three year old son, and two dogs in Atlanta. When not designing architecture, she loves yoga and gardening.
Dencity was founded in 2000 by Bryan Russell and Staffan Svenson. The firm has now grown to include offices in both Atlanta, Georgia and Berkeley, California. To contact our Berkeley office, please visit www.dencitywest.com.
