Our History

In 1984, Stephen Overcash opened Overcash Demmitt Architects with longtime partner Tim Demmitt.

They are pictured here at their offices in the Carillon building in Uptown Charlotte, where they resided for 8 years.

In 2005, they moved to their current office in at 2010 South Tryon Street in the Historic South End District of Charlotte, just minutes from Charlotte’s center city.
