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.
Lesley BraxtonAIA, NCIDQ, LEED AP
Lesley Braxton’s work strikes a beautiful balance between courage and restraint – two qualities learned during her childhood. Her family relocated to eight different states in her first 17 years, teaching Braxton to embrace change, optimism and the cultures of many. This influenced her path as an architect and interior design architect to take a wide-angle view and operate as a generalist in a seemingly very specific world. She designs across higher education, science and technology, and corporate typologies, ultimately blending influences of each project into the next. This blurring helps her discover new ideas, question traditional boundaries and build enduring friendships with her clients. Braxton is the glue that holds complex teams together by bringing nationally recognized, award-winning design leadership and an empathetic, hands on approach.
Braxton is a frequent guest speaker and critic at SCAD and Auburn University, her alma mater, where she received a Bachelor of Architecture and a Bachelor of Interior Architecture. She is also a dedicated mentor to many young women, helping them develop careers while giving her a deeper look into their cultures. She also has a love for art and travels the world with her family drawing and painting; both of her children held paint brushes before the ever holding a pencil. Her motto is: “Great design is tangible optimism.”
