Presenting their new and recent projects, Lake|Flato Architects demonstrate the inexhaustible potential of the modern house to enter into a dialogue with nature.

Lake|Flato Architects, based in San Antonio and Austin, believe first and foremost that architecture should be rooted in its particular place, responding in a meaningful way to the natural or built environment. Using local materials and partnering with the best local craftsmen, Lake|Flato seek to create buildings that are tactile and modern, environmentally responsible and authentic, artful and crafted.
 
Now more than thirty years since its founding, the firm has grown along with the range and complexity of its projects, yet it still considers the desire to build in partnership with the land to be an approach that remains valid and increasingly resonant. Lake|Flato’s first projects were houses, and these projects excite the firm still. By exploring the intimate relationship between family, place, and building, Lake|Flato create unique living environments that possess a compelling authenticity and beauty.
 
 
Since founding Lake|Flato with David Lake in 1984, Ted Flato, FAIA has received wide acclaim both nationally and internationally for his straight-forward regional designs, which incorporate indigenous building forms and materials that respond to the context of their landscape. By applying sustainable strategies to a wide variety of building types and scales, Ted seeks to conserve energy and natural resources while creating healthy built environments. His projects are always sensitive to the climate—whether along the Gulf Coast, Northeast, west Texas, or southern California. His commitment to sustainable environments does not end with his designs—Ted’s notoriety has earned him invitations to lecture across the nation on subjects such as healthy buildings and sustainable strategies as well as on Lake|Flato’s latest books, including Lake|Flato Houses: Respecting the Land (Rizzoli, 2021) and Lake|Flato: Nature, Place, Craft & Restraint (UT Press, 2020).
