Our Design Approach

Larsen Architects operates on the cutting edge – often pushing the envelope and setting new standards – while remaining firmly rooted in the established traditions of architecture. We approach every project on its own merit, with an open mind and a deep knowledge of how the project will serve to balance, enrich and advance the community in which it will co-exist.

Environmental Responsibility

Today, every organization must be considerate of, if not concerned about their influence on the environment. Sustainability isn’t just a good idea, it is a necessity. Larsen is dedicated to addressing environmental issues and opportunities on every project in every community at the earliest possible stages of development. And our LEED™ Accredited staff can guide your project through USGBC certification.

Our Staff

Great architecture results from great architects. Architecture that enhances community results from architects who are educated and invested in understanding community dynamics. Our staff provides full architectural design services to both private and public sector clients. The breadth and depth of our experience results in a thorough and balanced discipline.

Our History

Passion and the pursuit of design excellence are the cornerstones of our firm, as they have been for nearly three decades. And while we have grown from a small, local architectural team to full-service firm with a true national perspective, we remain a community centric partner to every client in our portfolio.
