Trahan Architects was founded in 1992 by Trey Trahan. The firm is intimate in size but broad in its scope. Bringing together a diverse talent pool around a single shared table, our company is built on open, ongoing conversation. 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
