Sonya Lee Architect llc is an architectural design firm, specializing in thoughtfully detailed residences and commercial spaces.  The work of Sonya Lee Architect deftly combines a strong conceptual approach with pragmatic solutions specific to the conditions and potential presented with each project.  With each project, we emphasize the thoughtful making of meaningful space by working carefully with clients, consultants and contractors.

Each project is unique – no one lives, plays + works the same, so why should your space be generic too? 

We view each project as a collaboration.  While we seek design solutions that are creative, the success lies in the crafting details and spaces that are functional to you – for now and in the future.

We are resourceful:  We design at varying scales from furniture to buildings.  With over 15 years of experience, we have established a team and network of consultants that can expand and contract based on the needs of the project
