Investing in Future Success

As we reflect on 2023, LS3P has made significant investments over the past year to propel Evolution25 and position our firm for future success. These investments are Vision-led, Mission-forward, and Values-based.

We expanded our regional presence by welcoming a new office in Jacksonville, allowing us to broaden our reach and transform more communities. Simultaneously, we bolstered our talent pool firmwide. We welcomed seasoned professionals across diverse practice areas who elevate our expertise, our knowledge, and our client relationships. In total, over 60 talented team members joined LS3P in 2023, expanding the firm to almost 500 team members across practice, business, and support.

Leadership transitions infused new energy into the firm and individual offices. New office leaders were appointed in Charlotte, Raleigh, and Savannah, and we established new roles like Innovation Leader and Living Practice Leader that will foster creativity and transform design thinking. The LS3P Board welcomed Katherine Peele as Board Chair and Lisa Pinyan as a new Director.

Our investments extended to all our colleagues through an expanded Total Rewards & Compensation Review - a 25% increase in investment in 2023. We enriched our workspaces around the firm, relocating the Asheville office to the historic CitizenTimes Building, with plans to relocate more offices in 2024 to better accommodate collaboration and growth. Technological investments and advancements allowed us to optimize knowledge sharing, increase learning, and enhance recruiting. By refining our business development and marketing strategies, we further fortified the capabilities of our team members, leading to an impressive 84% success rate in project pursuits. Brand awareness campaigns, design accolades (30 new design awards!), and community involvement underscored our commitment to excellence and impact. Through initiatives like Design-In-Kind and The LS3P Foundation, we continued our legacy of giving back to the communities we serve, marking a purposeful journey into our 60th year. Thank you to each of you who have given your time and talents to these endeavors – and thank you for always representing LS3P so well.

LS3P is moving in a positive direction, and we are well-positioned for inspiring outcomes in all that we do. We are a firm of great value; uniquely designed and purposefully made. As we enter a new year, we are poised to continue to do great work, to optimize and grow our team, to innovate our approach to design, and to share transformative designs with our community.

Over the course of the last six decades, LS3P has stood as both witness and participant in the ever-evolving tapestry of global events and popular culture. As we commemorate our remarkable 60th year in existence, the firm finds itself intricately woven into the fabric of history, its architectural endeavors echoing the zeitgeist of each era. From the tumultuous tides of socio-political change to the vibrant hues of artistic expression, LS3P has not merely adapted but thrived, leaving an indelible mark on landscapes both physical and cultural.

1960 s

To the moon and back, the 1960s were a sociocultural superstorm. The musical magic of The Supremes and The Beatles took the world by storm, while Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird flew off the shelves. Pop-Tarts and pop art sprung onto the scene, and Ford’s newly minted Mustang hit the road in 1964. The Berlin Wall went up in 1961, and President John F. Kennedy took a fatal ride in 1963. The Civil Rights Act was passed in 1964, while 1968 brought the loss of Martin Luther King, Jr. in Memphis, TN. Woodstock capped the decade on a high note with over 400,000 people attending the harmonious festival.

When “Frank Lucas, Architect” hung out his shingle in Charleston in 1963, he had a one-room office, a brand-new architecture license, and a drafting table built with an old door. His first projects included screened porch additions, a fire station, and a can wash at the local high school.

A Clemson classmate, Sidney Stubbs, joined Frank in 1964 to form Lucas and Stubbs, Architects. The young firm entered a summer design competition for The Municipal Auditorium and Exhibition Hall for the City of Charleston. Despite a dramatic thunderstorm which flooded their basement office the night before the deadline, the team won the competition. The Gaillard Municipal Auditorium opened to critical acclaim in 1968, and was later recognized with an Honor Award from the South Carolina Chapter of the American Institute of Architects.

1970 s

The 1970s were a time of shake ups and shake outs. McDonald’s rocked the fast food market with the introduction of the Shamrock Shake in 1970, while the Videosphere launched an out-of-this-world technology experience for users of all ages. In 1973, Billie Jean King shocked the world by sitting down Bobby Riggs in straight sets - a major feat for gender equality in sports and beyond. The music world was rattled throughout the decade - from the 1974 Beatles breakup, to the untimely death of Elvis in 1977, and the emergence of Punk and Disco - adding a new level of funk to a world plastered with scandals and war.

in LS3P History

With the Gaillard Municipal Auditorium complete, the firm elevated from within. Frank Lucas was elected President of AIA South Carolina in 1970, and the firm was renamed to Lucas, Stubbs, and Long Associates a year later.

Richard Powell joined the firm in 1972; Thom Penney in 1974. By 1974, the firm had been renamed once more - this time shortening the name to Lucas & Stubbs.

By 1976, Lucas & Stubbs had expanded to 35 team members in Charleston, SC, leading to the organization of studios for the first time in 1977.

The firm was named one of Building Design & Construction’s Top 100 Healthcare Design Firms in 1978 - the first of many rankings to come.

The 1980s brought growth and expansion to LS3P. By 1982, Vito Pascullis, Richard Powell, and Thom Penney had become partners in Frank and Sidney’s practice.

The 1985 opening of a public terminal at Charleston International Airport marked a turning point in LS3P’s portfolio: the launch of our aviation sector. At its entrance, the prominent columns, arched forms, and an open trellis lure passengers in, while precast panels with embedded oyster shells pay homage to the ecology of the Lowcountry and establish a distinct sense of place.

In contrast to the traditional style of the airport terminal, the Commissioners of Public Works building in downtown Charleston offers a contemporary take on the city’s architectural detailing. The building’s sharp corners take advantage of the irregular site while providing clear visual pathways for pedestrians and drivers.

The 1990s were defined by a number of influential cultural events - like the debut of Friends, Mae C. Jemison being the first African American woman in space, and becoming the first film to gross $1 billion. The 1990 launch of the Hubble Space Telescope offered a new perspective of the planet. Toni Morrison became the first African American woman to win the Nobel Prize for literature in 1993, while Nelson Mandela became the first Black president of South Africa in 1994. A baseball strike in 1994 led to the cancellation of the World Series for the first time in 90 years. The Guggenheim Museum opened in 1997, regenerating the city of Bilbao through bespoke architectural design.

in LS3P History

LS3P grew to 100 staff members by the end of the 90s, before merging with TBA2 Architects in Charlotte, NC. The firm made a deep impact on the Charlotte community via iconic projects such as the Discovery Place Museum and the Charlotte Motor Speedway Corporate Headquarters, as well as developments like Morrocroft and Philips Place.

Around the Carolinas and beyond, LS3P continued to become a recognizable name in the industry through projects such as the Country Club of Charleston, the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, FL; Saks Majestic Square, and Crestar Riverview Center.

2000 s

Life-changing products. Unfathomable loss. Economic turmoil. Medical breakthroughs. Environmental breakdowns. Athletic accolades. Musical masterminds. The new century brought its share of highs and lows - from the launch of Facebook and Apple’s iPod, to major breakthroughs in the Human Genome project, the September 11th terror attacks, the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, the musical stylings of Eminem and Beyoncé, the Great Recession, a new MLB home run record, and everything in between.

in LS3P History

This decade brought national attention to LS3P with the appointment of Thom Penney as President of the American Institute of Architects in 2003.

41 years after LS3P’s first office was created, we opened our doors in South Carolina’s capital of Columbia in 2004. The following year, LS3P merged with Boney Architects to establish offices in Wilmington and Raleigh, NC.

The 2000s also brought the completion of some of the firm’s largest projects to date. The Grove Park Inn Resort & Spa was completed in 2001, bringing a luxury hospitality experience to Asheville. 200 South Tryon added to the Charlotte skyline in 2000. The North Charleston Convention Center opened to the public in 2000, while MUSC Ashley River Tower began operations in 2008.

American Pharaoh’s Triple Crown. A royal Brexit. A shattered century-old Chicago curse. Starting with financial turmoil and ending with impeachment, the 2010s brought a series of unpredictable events that the world was able to witness in real time due to the growing popularity of social media. Protesters flooded the streets for Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter demonstrations, while #MeToo flooded social media feeds. Simone Biles became the most decorated gymnast in the history of the sport. Hurricanes unleashed recordsetting winds and flooding from coast to coast. And a new

A 2011 merger with Neal Prince Architects of Greenville, SC, brought with it a rich portfolio of residential, worship, and higher education projects, expanding the firm’s presence in the Upstate. 2016 brought two more strategic mergers: Hubbard Architecture, LLC of Myrtle Beach, SC expanded the firm’s capacity in the Grand Strand, while Dawson Architects in Savannah, GA greatly enhanced the firm’s historic preservation and higher education resources and established the firm’s first office outside of the Carolinas.

Some of the firm’s largest projects to date were born out of the 2010s. The Wilmington Convention Center opened its doors in 2010, revitalizing the city’s riverwalk. Legacy Union’s first high-rise - Bank of America Tower - opened in 2019, marking the start of a celebrated development and continued relationship with Lincoln Harris. Live Oak Bank began operations at its current headquarters in 2012, with four subsequent buildings as a result.

The 2020s brought an exhausting new meaning to the word “unprecedented.” The COVID world’s outlook on healthcare systems and sociocultural norms. We stayed apart – six feet, to be exact – but grew closer through advances in the digital space, with TikTok, Facetime, and Meta’s Portal gaining immense popularity early in the decade. Tiger King distraction from the pandemic, and fame as the first non-English-language film to win Best Picture. Historic wildfires burned their paths through Australia and the United States; and protests flooded the streets around the globe. NASA’s Perseverance Rover said hello to a landmark journey on Mars, and the world said goodbye to countless sports stars and actors.

in LS3P History

2020 brought new leadership to LS3P with the appointment of Marc Marchant as CEO. Alongside this transition, a new strategic plan emerged: Evolution25 - a groundwork for the future that is rooted in LS3P’s enduring foundational values while setting ambitious goals to position the firm for success.

In 2021, LS3P launched our Atlanta, GA office to further enhance our presence in the state. After stepping down from his role, former CEO Thom Penney, continued to serve as Chair for LS3P’s Board of Directors for two years. Katherine Peele was named Board Chair in 2022 - the first woman in the firm to serve in this role - upon Thom’s retirement. That year also brought a strategic merger with TFF Architects and Planners of Greensboro, NC and PFA Architects of Asheville, NC, allowing us to better serve clients in the Triad and Western North Carolina. In that same year, LS3P launched The LS3P Foundation, naming Chris Boney as Board Chair. The Foundation will support leading design thinkers in advancing research, strategies, and technologies which promote transformative change, improve human and planetary well-being, increase economic mobility, and advance issues of health and social equity across the Southeast.

2023 brought its share of new offices and new roles. A merger with ENB Architects in Jacksonville, FL established the firm’s first Florida location. Espy Harper was named LS3P’s inaugural Innovation Leader with a keen focus on developing transformative solutions for our people, our projects, and our communities.

In 2023, we made a commitment to innovation. We know that change doesn’t happen overnight, and we are sincerely grateful to work alongside team members who share our foundational values of excellence, integrity, empowerment, collaboration, balance, stewardship, and caring. We thank you for choosing to be a part of this world-class team, and we thank you for a very successful year!

striding into the sunshine state

On April 1, 2023, LS3P merged with Jacksonville-based ENB Architects. This merger expanded LS3P’s Southeastern footprint into Florida while capitalizing on existing partnerships with local clients and highly respected colleagues. Founded in 1986, ENB brought a diversified portfolio of aviation, commercial, education, hospitality, living, federal, and industrial projects to LS3P.

Re: the former, there’s a lot more to architecture than boxes, gable roofs, and extruded floor plans; though we may still frequently arrive at those forms, we do so because they’re the right formal gestures for the job and not because we’ve failed to consider the alternatives. Many young designers begin their architecture careers with an understandably limited view of what architectural forms can be and even less knowledge of how one might go about constructing them. That’s why discussions about things like origami (where stiffness is achieved through the addition of a crease) and ruled surfaces, which permit the construction of curved surfaces from straight elements (like light timber!) are really useful in school: they expose students to new formal languages while also Image credit: Brian Wurst A New Path: Reducing Emergency Department Visits by 20% in One Year ©LS3P 2023 Nicholas Day // Emerging Professional ©LS3P 2023 DeafSpace: Designing for a Rich Sensory Experience Navigating the built environment is a multisensory experience. We depend upon subtle visual, tactile, and auditory clues for wayfinding and safety, and the design of a space can profoundly impact the ways in which we experience it. Working Smarter, Not Harder TECHNOLOGY 3D Building Capture Tools Streamlining Documentation and Coordination Designing for a renovation project has always come with a degree of uncertainty. Record drawings which were accurate the day of the grand opening may be wildly outdated decades later; walls may have been reconfigured and interior details may have changed over time, and small details can make a big difference when comes to code compliance, change orders, and surprise deficiencies in building’s condition. In years past, navigating this uncertainty meant sending designers to the site with tape measures and clipboards to check very wall, door, and window. This measurement and documentation process often took weeks. Laser measuring tools sped up the process (sometimes at the expense of accuracy), but documenting existing conditions still meant piecing together photographs and measurements to establish trusted working drawings impacting a host of design decisions. Invariably, a critical detail or two was missing, so verifying details meant driving back to a site and taking more photographs or measuring forgotten element. Today’s tools for 3D building capture have changed the landscape entirely. Using picture-to-picture scanning and/or “Light Detection and Ranging” technology (commonly known as LiDAR), designers can walk through a building with a tripod and scanner and capture a complete 3D “marionette” model accurate from 1” to 1 mm, depending on the tool. This model can be shared with the entire design team to streamline coordination and verification –without anyone else having to leave their desk. LS3P Associate Clay Horney, an in-house expert, uses a variety of tools to capture existing conditions, depending on the size and complexity of project. “These tools are game changer,” he says. “The data capture process and software are quick and relatively easy to use, depending on the complexity of the system, and we now have options that will work for documentation for a wide variety of project needs.” The tool selected might depend on whether a virtual walk-through is needed, and the degree of accuracy required.
