Lee A. VanDeKerchove


Principal, Studio Leader
Science & Technology Design Studio

“I was attracted to Harley Ellis Devereaux because we share a design philosophy based on a rigorous and rational approach. Reduced to its most basic form, design can be defined as elegant problem solving, whether master planning a research campus, or trying to accommodate new equipment in an existing laboratory. In designing for the science-based client, we collaborate with end users and the engineering disciplines arriving at a cohesive solution satisfying all project programmatic requirements. What excites me as an architect is the added value we bring to the process as we strive to create solutions providing safe, flexible, and stimulating environments for our clients.”
