Ramsay Sherrill Architects is a certified, 100% Women Owned Business and has been located in downtown Savannah, Georgia since late 1994.
Linda M. Ramsay FAIA (at left in the photo) and Sandra L. Sherrill AIA established Ramsay Sherrill Architects in December 1994 with the intention of providing a broad range of professional design and consulting services. Both Linda and Sandra have lived and worked in downtown Savannah since the early 1980's and have recently relocated their office to the historic Battersby-Hartridge-Anderson House on East Charlton Street.
Design excellence, quality and responsiveness of service are the primary aspirations of both partners. The firm provides a full range of services tailored to meet each client’s specific needs. Providing quality service has lead to the development of long-term, productive relationships with clients over the years.
Linda Ramsay combines degrees in History and Architecture to bring a unique service to her clients in the field of historic preservation. Ms. Ramsay was elected To the College of Fellows of the American Institute of Architects for her contributions to the profession, and is a Bronze Metal and Honor Award recipient from AIA Georgia. She has served as both president of AIA Georgia and AIA Savannah. Additionally she has received a number of Design awards for her work in historic preservation.
After twelve years of service on the Savannah Historic Board of Review , with six terms as Chair, Ramsay was cited by the City of Savannah’s Metropolitan Planning Commission for displaying a deep commitment to historic preservation, the community and an abiding concern for its continued well-being Ms. Ramsay demonstrated her continuous efforts to volunteer her time and expertise as an architect reflecting the trust and confidence she so ably earned and her untiring efforts reflect credit to herself the Savannah Historic Board of Review, historic preservation and the community.
Ms. Sherrill brought an extensive range of work experience in both commercial and educational architecture to the partnership. Her major project focus is on code upgrades and accessibility. She has developed strong relationships with several area universities and colleges over her thirty-plus years in architecture and the majority of her projects are from 'repeat' clients. Projects are varied in scope and budget - ranging from the very small (design of a single, accessible residential bathroom) to gutting entire buildings for major system and code upgrades.
She is a Past-President of AIA Savannah and is currently the PR chair for the Rotary Club of Savannah East. Her personal interests include photography, gardening and the (never ending) renovations to her historic downtown home.
The partners’ diverse background, experience and capabilities complement each other and together they are well suited to manage a variety of projects. Projects ranging from renovations and additions to historic residences and higher education facilities, restaurant and light commercial renovations, accessibility upgrades, code and interior finish upgrades, to the fun stuff - working on the Olympic Yachting Venue - round out the firm’s project list.
