ABOUT LS3P + OUR GREENSBORO OFFICE

LS3P is an architecture, interiors, and planning firm celebrating 60 years of design excellence. With deep regional roots and a national reach, we offer large-firm expertise and resources with small-firm relationships and service. In everything we do, we’re guided by our vision: In our commitment to the Southeast, we create architecture that enriches community through a culture of design excellence, expertise, innovation, and collaborative engagement.

At our core, we are a design firm, dedicated to engaging people in the process of architecture to create outstanding places to learn, live, work, heal, and serve.

Merging with LS3P in 2022, TFF Architects & Planners, LLP (TFF Architects) was formed on the desire to create a firm that serves our clients and Greensboro community through quality professional architectural service, responsive and responsible design and that utilizes the collective talent of our team to enrich our community. This merger has blended our portfolios of award-winning and community-based projects while expanding our presence in the Triad region.

The founder of DesignIntelligence has called LS3P “the most local of the global firms and the most ‘world-class’ of the locals.” LS3P brings a history of 59 years of design excellence, with over 650 design awards across diverse practice areas. With a mission to “engage, design, and transform,” we are deeply committed to the communities we serve.  We believe in collaboration, innovation, and building lasting relationships with our clients.
