Local Architects is a band of Atlanta-based architects with the shared goal of creating lasting spaces.

We believe in the value of thoughtful design. Every project is approached with sustainability and resourcefulness in mind. We have the know-how to stretch your hard-earned dollar. Instead of immediately looking to write a whole new book — our focus is on how we can collaborate with you to shape the next chapter in a story that’s already being written. Whether it’s new construction or adaptive reuse, we design buildings that stand up against a project’s ultimate test: time.

We believe the approach is as important as the execution. We’re clever and fun to work with — but know when and how to take architecture seriously. We see the forgotten beauty behind layers of paint and uninformed decisions. We consider a site’s history and context, and a building’s place within the culture of a neighborhood. We design with the understanding that our choices will have a material and cultural impact on a community and its people for years to come.

 We believe in taking on challenges that others pass up. “Unbuildable” sites? An overlooked neighborhood? “Unsalvageable” buildings? With the right team, hidden opportunities can be uncovered where others have seen only frustration. We take pride in crafting inspired design with you.




We offer entitlement services to our clients with a focus on vetting property with the county, municipality, or jurisdiction having authority and assisting our clients with the due diligence associated with land development and real estate transactions.


Commercial Architecture

We offer full architectural design services to our commercial clients with a focus on the adaptive reuse of existing buildings, as well as new, ground-up projects.


Residential Architecture

We offer full architectural design services to our residential clients for a broad range of project types; from small renovations and additions to ground-up projects.


Interior Design

We offer interior design services for both residential and commercial projects, including the design of custom furniture and fixtures.



We offer master planning services at multiple scales. Whether the subject property is a small single family lot or a large-scale urban development, we are here to guide you through the process.


Urban Design

We believe in the value that thoughtful urban design can bring to the public realm and surrounding communities. To that end, we offer urban design and public space design services to both private developers and municipalities seeking design services.
