Lightroom was founded by William Carpenter FAIA, PhD in 2002, and has flourished over the past 10 years to become an internationally award-winning design practice for its involvement in Web, Graphic, Interiors, and Architecture projects. We are an urban studio located in Decatur Georgia. We are constantly reinvigorated through our engagement in multiple design-related disciplines each feeding and complimenting the others and allowing for unimpeded creative growth.

Our talents and abilities as architects translate into a unique approach to our graphic and website design projects, with modern Architecture remaining at the core of what we do. We practice architecture in a way that is rigorous and restrained, with a strong regional and environmental focus. We believe that each project contributes to the larger context of our region, having its particular budgetary, site, and programmatic restraints and opportunities.

"Lightroom is one of the only studios willing to engage their clients in a space vastly underserved in the Atlanta marketplace…. that space is the space of living. We are so lucky we found Lightroom. Their vision brought our dreams to reality." --Justin Beals, New Media Designer and Lightroom client
