Openness | Respect | Accountability

Our Culture Makes the Difference

We know it sounds cliché…but at LMG, we really are more than just coworkers–we are a family. We celebrate each other’s wins, hold each other accountable, and genuinely care for each other. The way we interact with one another shapes the way we interact with our clients. We strive to create a culture of openness, respect, and accountability in every scenario.

We like helping people, we’re passionate about making architecture approachable for everyone, and we love solving design problems. All of these factors are clear throughout our process. Our clients can sense that we enjoy what we do and that we like helping them do it. We’re not perfect. But when things don’t go according to plan, we put our heads together and figure out a solution that works.

With us, what you see is what you get. No smoke screens, no gimmicks, and absolutely no stuffy “well-that’s-just-what-we’ve-always-done” ideas. We’re the real deal—and after just one meeting, we think you’ll be able to tell.

Our People

Meet Our Team

Lura DiAntonio Godfrey

Owner, Principal

Lura has 26 years of experience with architecture firms in Spartanburg, Greer, Atlanta, and Greenville. She has worked on institutional and residential projects in Georgia and South Carolina, including much experience with renovations and additions of various sizes to churches, private schools, and private homes. She has special expertise in space planning, interior finishes, and managing small and large project stakeholder groups.

Lura has been a small business owner for the last 13 years and loves the flexibility that affords her to build long-term relationships with her clients. She prides herself in her ability to understand her clients’ needs up front, decipher their vision, and translate those needs into effective solutions.

When she isn’t working (well, even when she is) Lura is doing the most important job of all: being mom to her boys. Family is Lura’s number one priority, and motherhood has taught her patience, flexibility, and the importance of prioritization. Lura loves being outdoors: walking, hiking, biking, you name it. She is heavily involved with her church, Trinity Lutheran, and volunteers in different capacities.

Lindsay Lawhead

Project Designer

Lindsay’s ten years of experience in programming and feasibility studies, land planning, architecture, interior design, and visual materials, like sketches and renderings for marketing and presentations, make her sort of a jack-of-all-trades at LMG. Her degrees—a B.A. in design and Master’s of Architecture—have opened doors for her to do a little bit of everything over the years. She has lent her skills to projects in Aiken, SC, Greenville, and Charlotte.

Lindsay is incredibly detail-oriented and thorough. If she can’t find the answer, she will find someone who does. When she isn’t in the office, Lindsay enjoys spending time with her family hiking, traveling, sketching, and going to Clemson Football games.
