After collaborating on projects for several years, Allison Architects and Ruby Architects have become one entity. The merged firm, Allison Architects Inc., will establish client bases in Little Rock and Fayetteville.

Aaron Ruby, president of Ruby Architects of Little Rock, said he is excited about joining a team whose vision “fits perfectly” with his own.

And John Allison, president of Allison Architects, said: “Aaron and his firm excel in the ability to manage complex projects with consistent communication and detailed documentation. They are a recognized leader in historic restoration, and we really enjoy the creativity and historic sensibility they bring to all of their designs.”

Allison, Ruby and Chris Hartsfield lead the merged firm, while Matthew Cabe serves as director of the northwest Arkansas office in Fayetteville.

Six licensed architects are on staff at the firm’s offices in Little Rock and Fayetteville.

Sustainability is a focus for Allison Architects; both Allison and Ruby have LEED certification.

Ruby brings award-winning work in historic preservation with his previous firm. He was recognized for historical design knowledge and research at the annual Historic Preservation Alliance of Arkansas awards banquet earlier this year.

Allison and Ruby have been involved with a number of key projects in Arkansas, including the Oley E. Rooker Library in Little Rock, the Willard J. Walker Hall for the Sam Walton College of Business at the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, P. Allen Smith’s Garden Home in Dyess (Mississippi County) and the restoration of musician Johnny Cash’s boyhood home in Dyess.
