Since beginning my practice as a sole proprietor architect in 1984, my focus has been primarily on the rehabilitation of older and historic structures, historic architecture consulting, and residential architecture.

Jeffrey Lees

I have over thirty years experience in the design, construction, and renovation of a broad variety of building types, including educational, institutional (hospital), religious, commercial, and residential facilities.
Licensed in Maryland since 1982, and North Carolina since 1989, I have also been involved in the design of new construction, as well as numerous additions to existing structures in both states, some including adaptation for accessibility, as well as a variety of repairs.

In 2014, I obtained my license to practice in the Commonwealth of Virginia, and the District of Columbia. This year (2015),  I now have acquired licenses in Delaware and Pennsylvania as well, allowing me the opportunity to serve five contiguous states in the greater Mid-Atlantic area.

I am personally involved in all aspects of any project, including architectural programming, space planning, design, production of construction documents, and contract administration. I am also responsible for obtaining and coordinating the input of supporting consultants where necessary, including site/civil engineers, as well as structural and mechanical engineers.

Since you are working only with me, communication is direct and simplified. I recognize that your input is the key to the success of a project. As architecture must be a collaborative process, I strive to obtain that input as much as possible, tempered with my professional expertise and experience. I recognize that each project is unique to the desires and budget of each client, and the constraints of an existing site and/or structure. I believe in working with you to achieve your total satisfaction with the completed project; in the end, the building must work for your needs.
