About us

LLG Architecture is a full service architecture firm. We specialize in residential, commercial, interior upfit, retail, multi-family, medical, coastal and 3D Construction Printing. We are currently licensed to practice in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida, with plans to grow.

Established in 2020, we believe exceptional designs and incredible buildings begin with a foundation of  integrity and partnership in each relationship we form. We also believe that at the core of a strong community is not only its people, but outstanding design shaping and influencing the community. As designers, we challenge ourselves to promote innovation with each step. With integrity, quality, and function as fundamentals, we approach each project as unique, maximizing the project’s potential and its return in investment.

We are a group of passionate designers and professionals founded on four pillars: Community, Relationship, Innovation, and Collaboration.


A community is tied together with the strings of history, culture, and tradition. The built environment is a window into every community, shaping and influencing residence, visitors and future generations. We are focused on contributing to the positive influence of the built environment in every place our designs touch.


The cultivation of relationships are in the day to day of every part of our operations. Every relationship we build affirms our work ethic, integrity and quality of service. We believe that our investment in people not only informs our designs but grows into opportunities unseen.


Crucial to the success of any organization, innovation is at the core of design thinking and problem solving. Our design approach and process have evolved from 20+ years of experience in the industry, re-thinking those standards, and actioning creative solutions.


Cultivating a strong network of innovators, consultants and designers, we leverage technology and distance to bring bright minds and experienced players to the table. We believe this type of practice is where we are able to not only achieve our goals but exceed them more than we could have imagined.

…Connecting people and spaces. Together.
