Since its founding in 1984, Lake Flato Architects has designed buildings that respond to the culture and climate of each unique place. We believe in creating environments that enrich communities and nurture life through our work.
When we decided to create our own architecture firm in 1984, we had a number of strong ideas about what kind of buildings we wanted to design. We believed first and foremost that architecture should be rooted in its particular place, responding in a meaningful way to the natural or built environment. Using local materials and partnering with the best local craftsmen, we sought to create buildings that were tactile and modern, environmentally responsible and authentic, artful and crafted.
Now more than 32 years later, these beliefs still inform the architecture we create. While our firm has grown along with the range and complexity of our projects, we have found the desire to build in partnership with the land to be an approach that remains valid and increasingly resonant. Our first projects were houses and these projects excite us still. We have found that by exploring the intimate relationship between family, place and building we can create unique living environments that possess a compelling authenticity and beauty.
