Synopsis: "Lake Flato's designs display an aversion to stylistic pretension and a commitment to doing a lot with a little--reflecting the values of the South Texas Prairie."--David Dillon, architecture critic
Since 1984, Lake/Flato has been designing practical buildings whose ingenuity and craftsmanship merge tradition with new technologies. Their work seeks a modern vernacular. Building upon the traditions of regional architecture they adapt local materials and craft to build well sited structures that recognize the need for comfort and a strong connection to nature. Their rural work in particular blurs the distinction of indoors and outdoors by mitigating the Texas climate with screened porches, breezeways, and arbors that embrace the natural realm. Recipients of a national AIA Honor Award, a National Brick AWard, a National Sunset Design Award, and over 40 design awards, their work has been featured in 40 Under 40, The Environmental House, The New American Houses, and Under the Sun, as well as published in numerous national and international magazines.
About the Author: Ted Flato and David Lake grew up in Texas. David Lake received a B.S. in Architecture from the University of Texas at Austin in 1976. Inspired by professor Pliny Fisk's sustainable designs, he moved to the Texas panhandle and built modern sod-buster houses for farmers who enjoyed the notion of cows grazing on the roof. Ted Flato received a B.A. in Architecture at Stanford University where he was strongly influenced by William Turnbull's enthusiastic sensitivity to site and context. Ted returned to his ancestral home of Central Texas, where he began applying these principles in the design of goat pens, houses, and a small-town bank. David and Ted received their tutelage in regional design and the craft of architecture at Ford Powell & Carson in San Antonio, Texas.
