A Half Century of Quiet Transformation
In 1964, Joseph Legat launched Legat Architects from his Waukegan, Illinois home. He gained a reputation for projects that were on time, on budget, and responsive.
In the ensuing decades, Legat opened more studios and took on higher profile projects. The firm’s work won more design awards, while its portfolio spread to over 30 countries.
Though today Legat Architects stands as a leading design firm, Joe Legat’s legacy of responsive client service and employee empowerment remains at the firm’s core.
“Our multi-studio structure gives clients the convenience of a local architect with large firm resources. It also lets employees work for a major firm close to home, and allows us to select from a larger talent pool.”
