Office

Landry Smith Architect is a conceptually driven office operating in architecture and urbanism. We approach projects from a broad cultural vantage, focusing our efforts in a direct manner on form, space, and their ultimate social potential. We are most interested in the opportunities afforded by precise decision making and the fundamentals of the architectural discipline to achieve maximum effect. This strategy aims to produce work that is at once essential and open ended.
