LZT Architects, Inc. is a full service architectural firm with an altruistic motivation to provide innovative, award winning and sustainable designs for every client we meet. Our Austin office opened in 1982, continuing an architectural practice started in Illinois in 1932. We are proud of our proven record to produce cutting edge designs that combine our core principles of sustainability, functionality and aesthetics. Whether working with a residential, commercial or public client our goal is the same – be adaptive to their needs while tenaciously seeing the project through to completion on time and on budget.
LZTA believes sustainable design is an integral component of the design/construction process. The selection of building materials, orientation, prevailing winds, use of natural lighting, consideration of climatology, choice of mechanical systems, construction process, energy efficiency, conservation of existing site attributes, and recycling construction waste all influence our design process and resulting decisions.
