Natalie Lord, RA, LEED AP BD+C

Vice President & Founding Partner

Natalie’s love of architecture began at the age of 7, after stealing her big brother’s book about Frank Lloyd Wright. As a third generation Coloradoan and the great-granddaughter of a homesteader, Natalie was eager to return to work in her home state. A licensed architect in Colorado and Wyoming, Natalie has more than 13 years of experience working with many building types. She received her Bachelor of Architecture from the NewSchool of Architecture and Design in San Diego and her Masters of Arts in Historic Preservation Planning from Cornell University. Her desired legacy is to bring new and long-lasting life to communities with her work. Natalie, her husband and their two boys can often be found in the Colorado mountains camping, hiking, skiing or off-roading.
