Lawrence Combe, Principal

B. Arch, OAA Life Member, RAIC Life Member

Lawrence is a founding member of MMMC Architects and is invaluable as a conceptual designer. His concepts stimulate and guide everyone in the firm and his analysis of program requirements drive his creativity to produce outstanding buildings.

In complex projects, Lawrence has a synoptic ability to find the major forces which must be satisfied if the problem is to be successfully solved. This clarifying quality exposes the idea for many of our buildings and his ideas become the base for successive layers of detail and consideration.
