Bringing together a diverse pool of talent around a single shared table, our company is built on open, ongoing conversation. Founded in 1992 by Trey Trahan, the firm is intimate in size but broad in its scope.  We engage in a collective questioning of how our process and work can contribute to the health of our ecologies, cities and economies. Each member of the Trahan team is an integral part of a collaborative process that enriches our company culture and improves the quality of our work.

Ethos: Collaboration

Patricia Thomas
Office Manager

“Life is what you make of it so be sure to use the best ingredients.”

A native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Patricia has been with Trahan Architects since 2001. She feels that every day at Trahan Architects is a new day and welcomes it with gratitude and pleasure, and cannot think of any other place that she would like to work. She finds it exciting to witness a thought become a building.  Patricia wears every hat imaginable at the firm with the exception of architect.

In her free time she enjoys spending time with family, needle work, the beach, and traveling.
