Lindsay Smith established her practice, Lindsay Smith Architect, in 2005. The firm’s recent completed residential work includes an 8000SF new home for a family of collectors in Charlotte, North Carolina which re-envisions the typical relationships between suburban house, site, landscape, street and approach. Construction is currently underway on the firm’s design for an addition of a glass enclosed space to a house in Charlotte, NC for two artists and their family. This addition seeks to activate the house’s relationship to its garden while expanding the open living spaces within the house. They are also working on the renovation of the offices of a Manhattan law firm as well as the reconfiguration of a house for a museum curator in Great Falls, Virginia. Additionally, Lindsay Smith has completed the design and construction of several New York apartment, townhouse and loft renovations both as part of her current practice as well as in her previous professional positions.

Lindsay Smith received her Master of Architecture degree with Distinction from the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University and her undergraduate degree in Architectural History from the University of Virginia.
