Where We Started

LMG's Origin Story

LMG Architects can be traced back to Atlanta, Georgia in 2005. LMG’s co-founder Lura Godfrey worked at a mid-size design firm focused mostly on schools and churches. Lura was doing great work but had lost touch with the aspects of design that she really loved. Lura knew she needed to venture off in pursuit of a career that felt more personal; so she founded LDG Design, a small design studio focused on residential additions and renovations.

During this time, Lura’s husband Mark worked for several, larger, corporate design firms. Although Mark was gaining invaluable experience in his corporate role, he soon realized that his story was beginning to sound a lot like Lura’s. Mark eventually left his firm to join Lura on her entrepreneurial journey. And with that, LDG Design became LMG Architects on January 1, 2014.

Founded on Connection

Challenging the Status Quo

During our years at corporate firms, we noticed one crucial detail was missing: authentic connection with our clients.

We knew that with our combined experience we could offer clients the same level of quality they’d come to expect with corporate firms, without sacrificing basic principles that are important to us: affordability, flexibility, service, and accessibility, just to name a few.

The Heart of LMG

At LMG, we have a heart for special types of clients. Homeowners who have never worked with an architect before. Business owners who want to upfit a building, but may not know where to start. Our knowledgeable team can walk you through each step of the process to make it as simple as possible.

No egos. No bureaucracy. Just quality architecture and design, with a whole lot of heart behind it.

We foster a culture of openness, flexibility, fun, and respect. Our team is a true testament to our culture.
