Lake | Flato: History
Lake | Flato is an architect firm that was started in 1984 by two men, Ted Flato and David Lake. The company’s main goal is to create architecture that is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also friendly with the environment. The two men’s first projects started small. They mainly focused on building houses;however, today the two men have expanded their company and moved on to bigger and bolder projects. Such as stadiums, railroad headquarters, and much more. One unique trait they pride themselves on is allowing the indoors and the outdoors to live in harmony. For example, some of the houses they have built focus on creating courtyards that have ways to transform into an enclosed dwelling and vis versa, create indoor living spaces that can be opened up to the outdoors.
