Whether a building or residence, open space or interior, each project is personally designed and overseen by Design Director Liza Crespo. At LCE, we believe that architectural sustainability goes far beyond choosing eco-friendly building materials or construction processes.

We work with you to create customized design solutions that are sustainable, innovative, and on the cutting-edge of environmental technology.
