Andrew S. Thomas AIA, NCARB, LEED AP

Starting the studio Andrew S. Thomas, Architect in 2002, Andy has focused on letting the context inform design, with the experience of place being highly informative to the design process. Under his leadership, the firm’s work has included the LEED certified new lower campus for the Peabody School, a new Fine Arts building for the Free Union Country School to the Druid Avenue Residences, a development of homes focused on indoor environmental quality.

Recent consulting work has included architectural design for Powe Studio Architects on the 148 unit Pantops Apartment Project. Consulting in landscape design has included work on the Lower Bluff Walk in Lynchburg, VA and campus master planning/landscape planning with Kennon Williams Landscape Studio. Recently he has completed a two phases of renovations for the Wesley Foundation student center at the University of Virginia. On the boards he is planning a mixed-use apartment building that is an adaptive reuse, a large portion of the apartments being planned for use by people who are developmentally disabled.

Spending time with family, on urban sojourns and traversing nearby mountain trails, Andy enjoys celebrating the place in architecture and in life’s moments.
