At LDA architects, we are a full-service architectural firm founded in 1995, and are proud of our solid reputation with numerous clients for superior service, quality design and technical skill. We have completed numerous municipal, commercial, institutional and residential projects as well as planning and urban design studies. Of the hundreds of projects completed, the work of the firm remains a diverse mix of affordable and market-rate multifamily residential developments, adaptive reuse renovation and historic preservation, new commercial office, university and municipal projects.

We believe that people respond positively to well-designed and beautiful environments; therefore, we are not interested in design trends or fashion rather we strive to produce design that will be timely and timeless. We see our work as a balancing act – we strive to enhance the functional with the aesthetic and manage value while creating beauty.

We approach design as an open, iterative process with the client integrally involved during all phases of the work. Our firm listens to each client’s needs and applies fresh thinking to each project, in each case attempting to respond to the special character of the particular client, as well as the site, the context and the budget. 
The LDA Team has built a reputation on personal service and attention to detail for our clients’ projects.  The vast majority of our work is for repeat clients, proving their satisfaction. The strategic hiring of the most talented young architects, interior designers, preservation specialists and landscape designers has allowed our staff to grow, while always maintaining the highest standards of technical skill and professionalism. LDA offers Architecture, Interior Design and Landscape Design Services on a variety of building types and expertise concerning Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credits and Multifamily Market Rate, Workforce and Affordable (LIHTC) Housing Tax Credits. With offices at the Historic Agora Theater in Cleveland, Ohio, LDA designs beautiful environments that balance function, aesthetics and cost.
