Lake Flato Architecture by Rachel Goldberg

Lake Flato has been a leading architectural firm since 1984 due to its commitment to sustainable, modern and skillfully crafted designs. They use materials that are not only unique and modern but environmentally friendly and authentic. The company’s keen respect for the environment and emphasis on client collaboration allows them to work closely with their clients to put together projects that are highly responsive to the natural resources in which the site is encompassed. They recently completed work on a LEED-gold rated project at the Arizona State University Polytechnic Campus. The new facilities consist of five academic buildings with laboratory and classroom space for engineering, physics, anatomy and physiology, biology, chemistry, science, technology and math education. They are configured around three courtyards and linked by a series of open-air atriums, portals and arcades. “Through its practical and climatically responsive approach to architecture and concentration on landscape integration, the pedestrian friendly Polytechnic Campus entices students and faculty to stay on campus to interact and learn,” said architect Andrew Herdeg, A.I.A..

has 13 LEED Accredited Professionals, as well as a sustainability coordinator. The sustainable strategies they develop for each client have gained them national as well as international recognition. The firm has won 43 national design awards and four A.I.A. COTE Top Ten Green Awards, among others. They won several design awards for their adaptive re-use of a 1900s machine shop to create office space for Armstrong Oil & Gas in Denver, Colo. The office and meeting spaces are organized around a new central courtyard. The new design works within the existing building to create a fun, modern workplace. “The enclosed program was planned around existing elements in place creating generous, sophisticated spaces filled with daylight, natural ventilation and views to Denver’s skyline,” said Brian Korte, A.I.A., the Lake Flato design architect for the project. “Preserving a venerable building not only contributed to the historic nature of its context, but by keeping the existing scale and not building up vertically, the building maintains its relationship with the other vintage buildings on the street and remains a good neighbor.” Through the years Lake Flato has continuously created beautiful designs 3.
