Steven Le AIA

Steven’s many years of experience designing retail and lifestyle centers has fueled his belief that larger communities first evolve from small, individual contributions.

It is finding the harmony between small and large, individual and community that inspires Steven to create stimulating social spaces. He feels that the architect can change the lifestyle of the consumer by mixing together the typical uses of traditional Main Street, creating spaces where people can work, live, and play.
