Paul E. Meyer, AIA, LEED AP, NCARB | Principal/Owner

Growing up in Portland, Oregon, Paul discovered that he had a knack for understanding how buildings were put together. This prompted Paul to learn about building systems and how they all work together. He attended Portland State University and worked in a multi-disciplinary firm, which gave him insight into managing multiple disciplines and coordinating those within the architectural work. Paul has over 30 years of experience working on technology and industrial facilities. He enjoys continuing to learn from specialty engineering consultants and mentoring young designers. When not working, you might find Paul traveling with his family, or on his back porch enjoying an occasional cigar and bourbon.

Lance | Architect

As a kid, Lance’s parents were constantly rehabbing old homes in North Dakota (where Lance was born) and Texas.
