Stephen Fuller
PRESIDENT / CEO, Stephen Fuller, Inc.

Under the direction of Stephen Fuller's vision and talent, Stephen Fuller, Inc. has become the most sought after residential design firm in the U.S., specializing in land planning and community design. In 1984 after receiving his BS in Architecture from Georgia Tech University, he founded Stephen Fuller, Inc. with a desire to create modern homes that meet the needs of today’s high-tech consumers while preserving the integrity of traditional architecture.

Twenty years ago, Fuller introduced his hallmark of combining traditional classic facades with open contemporary floor plans. Since then, Fuller has cultivated a unique process of land planning, and is now responsible for the creation of 20 master planned communities in the United States and beyond.

Fuller’s vision motivates him to create land plans that are as thoughtfully designed as the individual homes that will one day enhance each lot. The architectural theme in each community is varied.

The intent of Fuller and his team to preserve what is best about the classic American neighborhoods of the past, and incorporate these features into the community land plan is evident and appreciated by developers and homeowners.

This appreciation is shared by colleagues and industry professionals as well. The very first of Fuller’s endeavors in Land planning and community design earned him a Best in American Living Award.

Attention to detail is a trademark of Stephen Fuller and his team. Over nearly two decades his designs continue to appeal to those who value sound design and custom touches that make a home both comfortable and memorable.

As a result of the popularity and demand for Stephen Fuller's designs, the firm has published thirteen collections of pre-designed homes, providing builders and consumers access to a variety of Fuller's award-winning designs. The most recent portfolio, American Neighborhood Collection, was published in February 2001. In this collection Fuller pioneers new design trends that address the needs of today’s active lifestyles and the increased technology within today’s homes.

Stephen Fuller has received over 90 awards of excellence for superior design including "Best in American Living" at the past NAHB Conventions. In addition, his designs have been featured in a variety of consumer and trade publications including Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles, Better Homes & Garden®, Builder, House Beautiful Houses & Plans, Professional Builder, Southern Living®, Good Housekeeping Home Plans, Colonial Homes, Country Home® and Home Planners.

Well-respected in his field, Fuller has been a featured speaker at the International Home Builders Show which has over 50,000 attendees each year as well guess appearances on HGTV’s “Lynette Jennings Show” and other local and regional television news interested programs. Fuller has done extensive design work creating the Arvida Cancer Homes for the National Cancer Society, and The American Wood Council homes. He is the designer of seven Southern Living Idea Houses, the Better Homes and Gardens 75th Anniversary Cottage, Home Magazine’s Thomasville Showhome and the 1997 Southern Living/Lowes homes.
