Blake is a registered Architect with over a decade of experience in architecture, design, and project management. A Louisiana native and graduate of LSU, Blake’s passion for design began at young age and through a fascination with airplanes. He and his father would often take trips to the airport to watch the planes come and go, only to return home and draw what they saw. This appreciation of art married with the highly technical manifested over time into a love of Architecture.
Believing Architecture is a conduit for collaboration, creativity and problem solving, Blake relishes engaging clients, consultants and contractors as partners in the design process, to facilitate unique outcomes for each project’s circumstance. Blake’s expertise includes a wide range of typologies and scale, serving as the Project Architect for educational and laboratory spaces, performing arts, historic restoration, hospitality, sports/recreation and industrial projects. Notable works include the NOPSI Hotel conversion and restoration, the Isidore Newman School Science and Technology Center, Planet Fitness in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Tulane University’s Makerspace, and Laitram’s Wet Test and Fitness Center facilities. Blake’s work on Newman’s Science and Technology Center won the Award of Merit in K-12 Education from Engineering News Record Texas & Louisiana, and the Excellence in Construction award from Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC). In 2022, Blake was recognized in City Business’s Excellence in Construction & Real Estate program as an Architect Honoree.
