About Us

Luke Golesh's unique design sensibility stems from a diverse range of exceptional experiences, study in Europe, and education.  Uniquely qualified to produce timeless contemporary structures, Luke blends the artistry and rigor of classical design with the modern needs of today—employing the principals of proportion and aesthetically pleasing details to traditional and minimalist projects alike.

With the first project he worked on published in Architectural Digest, the standards were set high early on.  From ocean front residences to New Urbanist town center buildings, Luke worked four years absorbing the architectural rigor of Scott Merril, a Driehause prize winner, town planner, and architect of numerous notable homes and town centers including several of international renown.  After working on large modern projects in large teams at the award winning firm Integrus Architecture, Luke worked as project manager at McRoberts Associates—classical and gothic architectural experts.

Luke's four months abroad studying extraordinary architecture in Europe had a profound effect on his design sensibilities.  He graduated top of his Masters class from the University of Notre Dame School of Architecture and was published several times in the annual publication of exemplary work.

While attending Notre Dame, Luke worked with many notable architects and architectural scholars including Krupali Uplekar Krusche, Duncan Stroik, and Thomas Gordon Smith.  Prior to graduate school, he graduated in the Betta Gamma Sigma Honor Society from Gonzaga University with a degree in Business Administration, Finance, and a rich course load that included Art and Philosophy. Luke also owned a small construction company which he operated in the summers of his undergraduate education—giving him a (rare) hands-on perspective when working with contractors and craftspeople.
