Lake|Flato Architects was established in 1984 in San Antonio with the strong belief that architecture should be rooted in its particular place in the world and that it should respond in a meaningful way to the natural or built environment around it. Over 25 years later our projects continue to explore the intimate relationship between family, place, and building, creating unique living environments that possess a compelling authenticity and beauty. While architects may traditionally be known as the designers of buildings alone, we see buildings as merely one piece of a much larger picture. In our houses, the architecture and landscape are one, with outdoor rooms and courtyards becoming as important as the enclosed interior spaces. As a result, we enhance our relationship to our environment, framed through buildings that are practical, timeless, and ultimately beautiful as well.
