Our greatest asset is our staff, and if you walk through our office you will see collaboration, mentoring, and focus.   In the design of our office, we focused on fostering formal and informal collaboration zones…the end result has been better than we’d even imagined.


Architecture is a fascinating blend of art and technical details…it’s creative, complex and challenging, and we’re passionate about doing it right.  Yes, we love awards, but our biggest achievement is when clients love their projects.


At the core our passion is simple… we love what we do, and we have fun doing it each and every day.


We are always looking for great talent to compliment our team.  If you’re interested in joining Potter Lawson,check our careers page for current openings.
