Lake|Flato believes in architecture that is rooted to its place, responds to the natural environment and merges with the landscape. With a palette of regional materials, we create buildings that are tactile and modern, environmentally responsible and authentic, artful and crafted. As stewards of the natural environment and our client's resources, we shape every project with empirical environmental knowledge and energy modeling resulting in sustainable strategies that artfully respond to each site's unique context. In 2004, the American Institute of Architects awarded Lake|Flato the prestigious Firm Award - the highest honor an American architecture firm can receive.
Lake|Flato believes that the best ideas evolve from an engaging and collaborative design process with clients, consultants, and within our own firm. We create an environment that leverages each person's passions and unique perspectives to insure common ownership and innovative solutions.
Our document and building process is as innovative and thorough as our design process. Our commitment to using BIM (Building Information Modeling) on all projects results in a seamless integration of energy modeling, sustainable systems, and construction detailing, and administration. This does not stop at the end of construction and is exemplified in our post construction reviews where we track building performance and energy usage well after the client has moved in.
