Featured Firm:  LFA Architecture

LFA Architecture is a Charleston based residential architecture firm providing full architectural services.   We focus primarily on historic restoration and new construction that builds on the historic architecture of the Lowcountry. We offer a full range of services tailored to your project, from the initial concept to move-in day and beyond.  More importantly, we’re here to serve you fully as you undertake your design project, whether a renovation, addition, new custom home, or historic restoration.

What makes us different?

We focus on and have a passion for residential architecture, which requires a different expertise than commercial architecture.  Rather than being a jack of all trades, we choose to continually hone our skills and strengthen our resources in residential architecture to better serve our clients.

We are grounded in the construction industry.  While working for many years in a design-build firm, I gained a more well-rounded background by being on site almost daily, working with craftsmen to develop creative solutions to challenging problems, coordinating subcontractors and materials, and managing the budgets and schedules… all while working closely with my clients to make all selections and finalize details.

We offer full architectural services.  We don’t just draw floor plans and pretty elevations, then leave you on your own to figure out how to make that design a reality.  By being fully involved, we offer consistent communication and guide you through the entire design and construction process, making the whole experience more enjoyable and less stressful.

We have an understanding of historic homes and the unique approach required with respect to design, materials, and methods of construction or restoration.  Armed with the experiences of being on site almost daily during major historic restorations, we work with you to achieve the right balance between preserving the past and restoring the home to fit your current needs.   This understanding of historic homes also serves well in designing new homes with classic details fitting for the South Carolina Lowcountry.

We are easy to talk to! For more information, visit www.LFA-Architecture.com, or reach out to Laura at 843.901.8485 or laura@lfa-architecture.com.
