About Us

At LBD I strive to create beautiful, contextual buildings in a clean and modern way. This is done by paying close attention to the building’s surroundings and by working very closely with my clients to listen to, and understand, their needs. At the end of the day, a beautiful building must be more than simply aesthetically pleasing. A beautiful building must also speak to the people who live, work and spend their time there. Such a building supports and adds to ones life in a joyful way. A beautiful building is a backdrop to your life that takes little and gives much in return. About Leslie: After growing up in the Midwest and spending my architecture school years on the West Coast, I made the shift to the Northeast to explore another region of the country and get some much desired hands on experience building a small, naturally built, timber frame house. Portland and Maine were totally unknown to me then, and I couldn’t have been happier when I realized that there was a vibrant architectural community at my doorstep. I immersed myself in it, spending five years working at Scott Simons Architects before branching out on my own. In my own practice, I really love being involved in every stage of the design process. This allows me to get to know my clients very well and to feel a strong connection to both the process and the outcome. Seeing a project through from conception to construction is a very gratifying and exciting experience. DREAM - DESIGN - BUILD - LIVE - LOVE
