With nearly four decades of practice along the Gulf Coast, Trapolin-Peer Architects is considered a top design firm in adaptive reuse. We begin with developing an understanding of all possibilities to enhance existing buildings and offer sensitive solutions that will compliment rather than disrupt the character of the existing spaces and maximize development potential.

Trapolin-Peer Architects designs tenant spaces that offset project cost and increase the diversity and amenities available within a neighborhood. From conversions in historic buildings to ground up construction, we design functional and creatives spaces for modern operations.

Custom single-family residential design is a craft Trapolin-Peer Architects has refined over four decades of practice. Our designs integrate the gracious building massing and spatial proportions reminiscent of classical European and Louisiana architecture with the latest building systems and contemporary conveniences. Natural lighting and visual connections to the outdoors anchor these homes in their landscapes, while interior layouts offer flowing, connected spaces that communicate comfort and hospitality.

Trapolin-Peer Architects has broad-ranging experience in education design at every level – from head start to higher education, and across project stages from master planning and fundraising to construction administration. Our designs prioritize flexibility, safety, connection, and the student and teacher experience.

Trapolin-Peer Architects has extensive experience with preservation, renovation, and new construction hospitality projects throughout destination neighborhoods in the Gulf South. We work hand-in-hand with owners and developers to offset project costs with historic tax credits, navigate code and regulatory agencies, integrate projects into the surrounding neighborhoods, and deliver a memorable end-user experience.

Trapolin-Peer Architects approaches interior design as an intentional connection to the architectural narrative. We determine vision and programming alongside our clients to ensure the interiors express personality and deliver functionality.

Our practice thrives in the density, vitality, and community offered by neighborhoods throughout the Gulf Coast. We design comfortable, contextual properties that reinforce and reinvigorate the neighborhoods where we live, work, and play.
