A classical approach with modern sensibilities.
RESPECT, APPRECIATION, INNOVATION
This common thread runs through the work of Franck & Lohsen. The firm’s deep appreciation and understanding of listed buildings and historically sensitive sites strongly influences its overall design philosophy.
While Franck & Lohsen draws inspiration from the designs of renowned classical architects throughout time and from the region, its designs don’t merely copy other architecture. The firm uses its contemplative imagination to envision new possibilities while maintaining the project’s historical roots. Upon completion, each work looks as if it has always been there — and can remain so for generations to come.
The firm executes each project with a holistic approach, keeping the entire project team focused on the client’s unique needs. Its comprehensive services can guide the project from the initial research, design, and planning stages, through the approval and construction phases, to the moment the ceremonial ribbon is cut and the work is put into full use and enjoyment.
The firm’s work has been cited in such publications as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Country Life, City Journal, The Washington Post, Architecture Magazine, Metropolis, and Southern Living.
