About Murphy & Dittenhafer Architects

Since the firm founding in 1985, M&D has a proven history of delivering impressive built projects. Our firm has received well over 200 design and craftsmanship awards. By promoting an integrated approach to architecture, planning and interior design, our team puts optimism, energy, and imagination to work. Our goal is to develop the best and most innovative design that reflects client needs, while creating “places” that make a positive contribution to the human experience – and the environment. We get to work on an array of exciting and interesting commissions – master plans, renovations, new construction, adaptive reuse, and historic preservation – for colleges/universities, K-12 schools, local governments, commercial businesses, faith-based institutions, libraries, and recreational facilities – to name just a few.


With offices in Baltimore, MD and York, PA – and positions available in both offices – we are the right size for opportunities to collaborate with Principals, other Project Management Staff, and very talented Architectural Designers – all of whom have Architectural degrees and are pursuing licensure – on how to elevate and infuse high quality design into each of our commissions and to manage projects efficiently and profitably.
