Lake|Flato has a unique ability to leverage challenging conditions and new programs to cost effectively transform existing structures. Through a collaborative process with an owner or institution, we seek to enhance unique programmatic elements through creative renovations that actively engage a campus or urban district. Our transformative designs celebrate the existing building and the new program to create an expressive identity and breathe new life into old buildings.

"[In Armstrong Oil & Gas HQ], understated materials achieve elegance through superior detailing and craftsmanship…

This design stands out for its thoughtful space making and through its handling of materials thoughtfully chosen to respond to the character of the original building."
