Since our founding in San Antonio in 1984, Lake|Flato 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. In collaboration with our clients, Lake|Flato creates buildings that are tactile and modern, environmentally responsible and authentic, artful and crafted.

Lake|Flato has received wide critical acclaim with more than 300 international, national and regional awards. The American Institute of Architects honored us with its prestigious Firm of the Year Award in 2004; Fast Company named us one of the “Ten Most Innovative Architecture Firms in the World” in 2016; Architect Magazine ranked us 1st in its 2019 Arch50 list; and the LOCUS Foundation honored us with a Global Award for Sustainable Architecture, recognizing our architectural approach to addressing the needs of society. Eleven Lake|Flato projects have received the national Top Ten Award by the AIA Committee on the Environment, the highest recognition for sustainable design.

We are currently seeking architects and designers to join our studios in San Antonio and Austin, Texas.
