I have the coolest job of all. I get to work with our clients and explore ideas with them. Then I get to put together the best team to develop those ideas, discover creative solutions and express them through architecture. I’ve enjoyed all of our projects, but your first always has a special place in your heart. We completed the Logan Canyon house over 20 years ago for a young family building their dream home in Cache Valley. Our families and the house have grown up together in many ways.
Warren is the son of an architect who grew up watching stories take shape in buildings. His passion for architecture deepened in the Pacific Northwest, where he became aware of the relationship between nature and the built environment. As a Monbusho scholar at Kobe University in Japan, Warren explored spatial patterns in traditional Japanese architecture. These early experiences informed his approach to design, and continue to guide his site-specific response to each landscape and the human conditions that shape it. While in graduate school, Warren interned at The Miller-Hull Partnership and NBBJ in Seattle. After graduating, he worked a few years for noted residential architect Tom Bosworth, FAIA. Since returning to Utah and joining Lloyd Architects as a managing partner and principal in 2000, Warren has developed a design-oriented practice with a diverse staff of young architects. He and his team have built successful residential and commercial projects in mountain settings and urban centers from the Wasatch Front to the Pacific Northwest. Warren’s commitment to architecture and design are evident in his community service and leadership. He both served on and chaired the Salt Lake City Historic Landmarks Commission during a critical time for preservation in historic neighborhoods. He has also served as a director of AIA Utah, is currently on the board of directors for the Utah Center for Architecture and serves as a member of the National Advisory Group for AIA CRAN (American Institute of Architects Custom Residential Architects Network). He’s a registered architect in Utah and Washington.
First and foremost, Warren is a committed husband and father. In addition to raising his own three children, he and his wife are foster parents for the Refugee Foster Care Program run by Catholic Community Services of Utah. Warren has also served several years on the Board of Trustees for the House of Hope in Salt Lake City. In his limited free time, he’s an intermittent skier and Lotoja cyclist, and he enjoys a good meal with family and friends.
Working at this scale was an incredible experience for me. I loved engaging and coordinating with the entire team as we all created this beautiful vacation destination.
Aaron is our project architect on large commercial and multi-family projects, including the recently completed Wyndham Hotel at the Canyons Resort in Park City. An essential member of our team since 2006, Aaron believes that architecture should involve materials harmoniously connected to create beautiful, functional spaces. Aaron understands how a project should come together, from its first schematic diagram to its finishing details. He’s highly experienced at programming and site analysis. He knows his building codes and standards inside out. And he’s been involved in the design and management of dozens of single-family homes. Aaron is also secretary of the Northern Utah chapter of the American Institute of Architects.
When he’s not telling stories through spaces, Aaron is out creating his own — often while cycling and spending time with his family in the mountains of Northern Utah and the deserts of Southern Utah.
I love getting to know our clients and their stories. Snuck Farm took shape out of the owner’s desire to honor the legacy of her ancestors. The barn and greenhouses sit in the heart of a farm that’s been in her family for over 100 years. Everything about the property is nurturing—from the hydroponic heirloom varieties of vegetables growing in the greenhouses to the spaces designed for extended family and community gatherings in the barn.
Jennie keeps the wheels in motion at Lloyd Architects. From bookkeeping to marketing, she manages the day-to-day details of running the firm. Her background in literature and languages has given her a deep appreciation for the similarities between great writing and the expression of ideas through architecture. She simply loves watching the talent around her develop memorable structures.
Outside of work, Jennie likes to cook, garden, read, explore urban neighborhoods and hike with friends in the Wasatch Mountains. Most of all, she enjoys visiting with her family around the kitchen table.
Previously home to Wheelwright Lithographing Company, this old warehouse had a rich history and character that we exposed by breaking down walls and floors, and then complementing the raw textures with a clean, minimal openness.
Anna is deeply connected to both her clients and sustainable design. She’s been an essential part of projects like Publik Coffee Roasters, known for its reclaimed materials and adaptive reuse, as well as Snuck Farm and the first historic LEED Platinum home in Utah. Anna knows how to turn a vision into an elegant, cohesive, environmentally friendly reality. And she brings a thoughtful, focused, team-oriented approach to every project she touches.
As a Southern Oregon based weekend warrior, she loves to get her hands dirty in the yard, baking treats in the kitchen, and hiking the Cascade Range with her husband and dog.
This project involved expanding the campus of Salt Lake City’s beloved Red Iguana 2. It required extensive coordination between the owners and the city to ensure that the well-established character of the brand was preserved—all while pursuing critical neighborhood development goals to strengthen the streetscape and increase community function.
Won is a Salt Lake City native who spent significant time on both coasts before returning home to share his diverse project-management experience with Lloyd Architects. He’s an advocate for the responsible growth of the built environment and he enjoys working on all scales—ranging from light timber structures in rural landscapes to robust commercial buildings in the center of a city.
Won is enthusiastic about participating in the ongoing development of his hometown, Salt Lake City. He’s passionate about food, drink, music and fly-fishing.
This dream project is unique as it integrates a beautiful cantilever into a modern residential design. I also love that the site’s lush vegetation and proximity to Emigration Creek make it look like the stunning backdrop for a movie.
Diane gained an appreciation of architecture at an early age, as she grew up flipping houses with her mom and stepdad in Pocatello, Idaho. She adores architecture’s ability to control light and shadows—and spark curiosity and excitement. She particularly appreciates design that pushes the envelope and creates an experience. Diane enjoys participating in the local chapter of Women in Architecture.
When she’s not obsessing over buildings, you’ll find Diane listening to music, visiting art museums, having outdoor adventures, traveling to experience architecture, and spending time with family and friends.
The Granary Campus is an ambitious adaptive reuse project of a series of timber and steel warehouse buildings that were built between 1891-1956. The new design includes adding a new floor which fosters shared, community-driven spaces and a rooftop deck to maximize 360 degree views to the mountains.
Chelsea is passionate about design that is innate to the people and place of its time. She believes each project is a unique opportunity to build relationships and tap into site-specific nuances to enhance our quality of life through our built environments. Prior to joining Lloyd Architects, she has worked on projects that range from a 500-square-foot chicken shack for a celebrity chef to 800,000 square feet of campus work. While she’s a self-proclaimed generalist, she is a LEED Accredited Professional and particularly enjoys designing with sustainability in mind.
Aside from design, one of Chelsea’s favorite ways to spend her time is cooking for others. If she’s not whipping up a new recipe, she’s probably exploring with her significant other and the friendliest malamute you’ll ever meet, Takoda. She loves Utah’s endless supply of outdoor adventures.
I love how such rough, raw, industrial materials came together to create such a warm and inviting space. This successful adaptive reuse project showcases the historical qualities of the original building while incorporating new elements. It all coalesces in a modern coffee shop that beautifully reinforces both the history and character of the community.
London came from a family of artists and construction workers, so he grew up with a keen interest in both worlds. He’s come to believe that great architecture tells the story of its time, place and community. That it’s rooted in location and built around the people who will inhabit the space. London has a strong appreciation for the fresh challenges that come with each new site and community.
London enjoys spending time with people, enjoying the great outdoors and cooking—preferably all three at once. That can involve camping, fishing and hiking or just sharing food and stories at home with friends and family.
I really enjoy it when a certain geometry can frame and connect different spaces to help establish a visual rhythm throughout a structure. This project is a great example of that with the uniquely shaped arches that are a consistent theme throughout the home
Chad was exposed to the world of design at a young age while growing up in South Florida. It all caught his eye, from the plentiful street art to the Miami Art Deco District to the million-dollar mansions along the intracoastal waterway. Chad’s family placed importance on both creative exploration and travel. Combining the two led Chad to architecture. Throughout his travels, he’s loved experiencing the differences between cultures, as well as their regional architectural styles. He’s come to see similar distinctions between people’s individual design preferences. Each household or project has a culture of its own that calls for an architecture that’s unique to its inhabitants.
These include, but aren’t limited to, surfing, snowboarding, fly-fishing, touring, mountain biking (basically anything that gets him outdoors), as well as playing the guitar.
Live-work spaces are definitely the way of the future, and this project beautifully integrates spaces for both family life and professional creation. I love that the workspace is highlighted in the front of the house rather than tucked away out of sight. And I really appreciate all the small details that make this home unique to this particular client.
Baylee grew up drawing dream-house plans and elevations with her father, which piqued her interest in both the creative and technical aspects of architecture. It was later during her formal architecture education that she discovered what she enjoyed most about it: the ability to make a positive impact on people’s lives through design. That can involve the personal process of designing a home where a family will experience life together—or the broader consideration of how a community optimally functions and interacts in an urban setting. Baylee loves helping to design spaces with the occupants’ experiences in mind, and getting clients excited about each projects’ potential.
Baylee loves camping, hiking, traveling, fostering dogs and playing with her own adorable pup.
I love that such unique and distinctive material palettes can create such visual unity. The individual beauty of each component is further emphasized by the gorgeous view behind them. It all adds up to an inviting space that just looks satisfying to be in.
Growing up in a historical African town, Barbara loved the timelessness of Swahili architecture and how it communicated the history of a people and culture in motion. Later she traveled to a more actively developing part of Kenya and became more curious about the stories architecture can tell about people today. Barbara has always appreciated the impact of architecture and the opportunities it provides to sustainably invest in the built environment.
Barbara enjoys all types of food, music and dance—especially if it’s African. She likes stretching her creative muscles through painting, thrifting, transforming old furniture and occasionally making new furniture she never quite has room for.
I believe the design of a space can affect the mood of the people within it. That’s especially true for the Broadway Park Lofts. Even just touring the building gave me a strong feeling of calm and serenity. The abundance of windows and natural light make it an especially peaceful environment, despite its location in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City.
Kate grew up with Lloyd Architects, and in recent years has supported our marketing and social media efforts while finishing up her bachelor’s degree in political science. Her college major was inspired by her fascination with humanity’s attempts to govern and organize countries and communities. At the heart of it, though, is a fascination with people. And now that includes the spaces they inhabit. Kate has attended many architectural conferences and explored a variety of beautiful spaces. She appreciates every opportunity to better understand the architectural process and the many ways it affects people’s lives. And we appreciate that she’s helping us share our work with the world.
Kate loves Salt Lake City and is passionate about supporting refugees and participating in local politics. She also likes to hike, thrift-shop and stroll the beautiful streets of our historic neighborhoods.
Campos Coffee has been one of my favorite brunch spots since I moved to Utah. It invites people to explore historic Edison Street, adding interest and energy to the alley with its unique natural facade and integrated seating. The large hangar-style windows bring the outside in and provide ample natural light all the way back to the kitchen.
Melanie is inspired by accessible design that considers its natural context, champions a sense of place and improves wellbeing. Her ongoing travels continually enhance her interest in architecture and particularly public spaces as she explores design across cultures and populations. Melanie brings a thoughtful and well-organized approach to every project. Before joining Lloyd Architects, she specialized in large-scale civic, commercial and education projects. Her work has encompassed high-end multifamily units, cultural museums, libraries, adaptive reuse, master plans, school renovations and office buildings.
Melanie adores exploring new landscapes—particularly while camping and traveling with friends and family. She’s always eager to learn more about food, art, roller-skating and the people around her.
This is a prime example of how a building can be beautifully integrated into the fabric of a city. 21 by Urbana activates the streets of the increasingly dense Sugarhouse neighborhood, yet the scale of the architecture doesn’t overpower its environment. On the contrary, the building’s simple palette of materials complements its historic backdrop. This project proves that designing with and for your surroundings can create truly cohesive architecture.
As a young child, Rosemary’s mom would take her on long drives to explore and analyze houses. Rosemary has never stopped appreciating the way different people express themselves through design and make their unique marks on the built environment. She loves helping clients formulate their visions of places to live, work and play. She’s an advocate for adaptive reuse and sustainable urban development. She’s passionate about creating long-lasting, beautiful buildings in a sustainable, community-minded way. And she finds the design process even more invigorating with these challenges driving it.
Rosemary enjoys morphing clay on a potter’s wheel, scaling rock walls and hiking with friends. She loves discovering landscapes on foot or bike, exploring the culture and architecture of new cities, and sitting by the fire at home.
