Urban Environments

By carefully studying environmental, cultural and urban contexts, Lake|Flato is able to create walkable, human-scaled urban cores that link back to nature. We employ sustainable environmental strategies to create healthy living and work environments that offer added value for our clients. The protection of our natural and historic resources and the adaptive reuse of existing structures form the foundation of our approach to sustainable urban design.

The key here is adaptive reuse. It's a really strong model for inserting something new into an otherwise derelict neighborhood of abandoned buildings and turning it into something that could revitalize the neighborhood.
