Carson Durham, AIA
Director of the Religious Design Group
With a little bit of southern charm and an infectious smile, Carson’s passion lies in creating great places that make a difference in his community. His architectural designs are inspired by history, nature, technology and human behavior. This Georgia native believes architecture and design is all about invention and innovation - inspiring built environment is all a part of human expression. He is also inspired by his lasting relationships with his clients; and you can definitely find him in his element when he is connecting with people of all walks of life.
Outside the office you can find Carson watching college sports, playing basketball, traveling, and finding a little happiness in just about every situation in life. But what really sparks that smile are his “two girls” – wife, Nicole, and daughter, Greer. They always make him laugh.
Anita Lanning, LEED AP
Anita has a passion for sustainability and her goal is to someday design a structure from locally sourced materials all contained within a 500 mile radius of the project. She enjoys lighting design and how it affects ones experience of the built environment. Anita is a member of the BIM Group, Religious Facility Group, and the Sustainability Group.
Away from the office Anita loves spending time with her husband and two year old daughter. They enjoy the outdoors and often take nature walks or get away as a family on camping trips. An avid crafter, Anita loves to paint, crochet, knit, quilt, and sew.
