New digs at Holsum Lofts proves perfect timing, energy for firm
LAS VEGAS – The move to the historic Holsum Lofts in The Arts District wasn’t meant to coincide with the name change of Lucchesi Galati Architects to LGA, but the serendipitous timing turned out to be perfect.
The new office is located at 241 W. Charleston Blvd. Suite #107, close to downtown Las Vegas and in the heart of The Arts District.
“It’s smaller than our old office, but we decided to adapt to the space. Eliminate paper. Smaller work stations,” said Craig Galati, LGA partner. “The space felt right, so we adapted to it.”
It’s no secret times have been difficult for all the Las Vegas Valley the last few years, especially in the construction, architecture and new building industries. After celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2011, the firm made a conscious decision to evolve. Thinking outside the box is a big part of the company’s culture, and the move is part of it.
“During hard times, it’s important to be connected, especially to your staff and those you work with on a daily basis,” Galati said. “For me, it’s great timing, because I’m sitting with everyone now instead of in my own office. I was out of touch with everyone in the office, and I didn’t know it until I sat with them. It felt like we were back at the beginning of the company when we all sat together again.”
Established in 1986, Lucchesi Galati, now LGA, is a cross-disciplinary, client-centered consulting firm that brings together the disciplines of architecture, sociology and sustainability using a collaborative, participatory and community-based process. Best known for its work on the LEED-certified Springs Preserve master plan and one of only a handful of Platinum LEED-certified buildings in the world, the Desert Living Center at the Springs Preserve, LGA has been a longtime advocate of green design and green living.
