LEXINGTON, KY--(Marketwire - Dec 6, 2012) - Lucas / Schwering Architects is now known as alt32 Architecture | Design (alt32), having undergone a complete rebranding, including a thoroughly updated website (www.alt32.com), to characterize its investment in the technology and practices of its evolving industry. Owned and co-founded by Matthew Brooks, AIA and Mike Sparkman, AIA, the 23-year old firm takes a holistic, hands-on approach to projects, collaborating on all aspects with its clients to help them fulfill their vision, whether conventional or completely out of the box.
Suggested by one of the firm's own employees, "alt" + "32" are the computer keyboard strokes for "space," which is the very essence of what alt32 seeks to create -- current, creative and beautiful space that relates well to both its surroundings and the people who use it.
"Utilizing the excellent design capabilities of our very diverse, innovative staff, alt32 is now prepared to bring new technology, research and testing to every project," said alt32 President Mike Sparkman. "To that end, alt32 recently purchased a 3D printer, which produces scaled models that allow us to investigate new forms and processes of production and fabrication that adds value to our services. This printer helps us to invent, test and improve theories of design," concluded Sparkman.
Founded in 1989 as Lucas / Schwering Architects and now known as alt32 Architecture | Design, the firm offers innovative design, technology and project management expertise in an integrative collaboration from idea conception to project completion. The boutique firm of ten includes five registered architects and an overall team with advanced degrees and certifications in Historic Preservation, Urban Design and Sustainability. Alt32 offers the high quality design of a larger firm and the excellent service of a small, tightly run group. The firm is located in downtown Lexington, KY at 310 Old Vine Street, Suite 300, 40507.
