Ashley helps lead Lake|Flato’s Austin office with a focus on designing urban environments that celebrate and enhance the remarkable connections between people and places. Her work has ranged from sustainable campus planning to boutique hospitality design, across diverse communities and ecosystems. Each of her projects creatively responds to its particular context while staying rooted in high-performance design strategies.

Ashley studied architecture at Yale and Harvard GSD, after which she helped start Low Design Office with colleagues from school who shared her interests in socially-minded design. After completing experimental design-build work in Austin, she joined Lake|Flato in San Antonio to work on more public-spirited projects across the US. In 2016, Ashley helped open LF’s Austin office, returning to a city where she strives to prioritize resilient place-making and to celebrate local ecologies amidst a rapidly-transforming region.

Ashley is a licensed architect in Texas. She has contributed to various local initiatives; with AIA, she has been a co-chair for Women in Architecture and helped establish AIA Austin’s Leadership Collective to engage emerging architects in professional development opportunities. She enjoys serving as an invited design critic at schools of architecture including UT Austin, UT San Antonio, UC Berkeley, and California College of the Arts.

Margaux is a proven team leader in Lake|Flato’s Interiors studio and key member of our Austin office. She is passionate about the relationship between interior and exterior architecture and how both can work together to support the health of people and the planet. Her designs align with a client’s brand and vision to create beautiful, functional, and vibrant designs that seamlessly transition between indoors and out. Her recent experience includes leading the interior design of the Holdsworth Center, a world-class training and leadership development campus for Texas public educators, to the interior design for House Zero, ICON’s 3D printed house in Austin that showcases a new set of architectural innovations and strategies for printed concrete construction.
