LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Luckett & Farley has launched a new Civic Design Studio, focused on design projects for local governments and civic and nonprofit groups. The newly created studio at the longstanding Louisville architecture, interior design and engineering firm reinforces the firm’s commitment to investing in Louisville through thoughtful, engaging design that energizes communities.
“We believe in the power of one transformational project influencing a city block, a neighborhood, and eventually an entire community,” said Luckett & Farley President and CEO Aric Andrew. “We believe in investing in the communities we want to live in, which is why we created the Civic Design Studio. Our team creates thoughtful, inviting spaces in our hometown — the kinds of projects that build connection and a sense of belonging.”
The firm’s studio-based model brings architects, interior designers and engineers together to focus on projects related to a particular industry or market. Other studios at Luckett & Farley serve corporate commercial and hospitality, distilled spirits, government, higher education and industrial markets.
Civic Design Studio team members are experts on the nuanced needs and trends of local government, civic and nonprofit projects. Clients benefit from the collaborative studio model to have all their needs — architecture, engineering and interior design — met under one roof.
Architect Robert “Boz” Lindgren, who joined Luckett & Farley in 2012, will lead the Civic Design Studio.
The experienced team behind the Civic Design Studio has completed a variety of civic projects including support for Louisville Metro Government on the Chickasaw Park master plan, renovations for the African American Heritage Center, and planning the proposed Shawnee Outdoor Learning Center.
Luckett & Farley’s community-changing design projects include the groundbreaking new Republic Bank Foundation YMCA in west Louisville and innovative Camp Restoration community for homeless veterans. In addition to work in its hometown of Louisville, Luckett & Farley has undertaken civic projects in multiple cities in southern Indiana.
While the Civic Design Studio is currently focused on Louisville-area projects, Luckett & Farley will expand its services to other cities in the region and across Kentucky.
“We’re the largest architecture, interior design, and engineering firm in the city, but also the state,” said Lindgren. “We feel a responsibility to the commonwealth to lead the way in setting the standard for design excellence from Pikeville to Paducah.”
As Kentucky’s largest and the nation’s oldest architecture firm, Luckett & Farley offers all design and engineering services under one roof, including architects, engineers, interior designers and developers. For more information, visit luckett-farley.com/work/civic.
