LPA is a different type of design firm. Founded in 1965, with offices throughout California and Texas, we have a nationwide reputation for innovation and sustainable design, including one of the largest portfolios of LEED Platinum and Gold-certified projects in the country.
Rather than dividing the company by disciplines, the firm is structured into flexible work teams. Each team is led by a principal and a project manager, allowing us to address problems holistically and bring expert voices to every discussion. Our work also crosses sector boundaries, reflecting decades of experience developing inspiring and efficient education, civic, healthcare, landscape, sports, entertainment, mixed use and office projects.
On a fundamental level, we tackle projects differently than other firms. Our approach emphasizes collaboration, communication and research to find the best answers for our clients. We never settle for the status quo. We don’t use templates. We believe a research-driven approach results in environments that work better, do more with less and improve people’s lives.
