Exploring new worlds through architecture.

Our story

“We make our buildings, and then they make us,” said Winston Churchill. Lekker is a group of designers, architects, and social scientists who explore how built environments can make us feel and experience. We are fascinated by the power of space to engage us, to create formative moments, and to provide a stage for public life. And even more—how it enables us to learn and imagine.


We take on projects with big ambitions: buildings that promote inclusion, neighborhoods that encourage walking and socializing, retail experiences that are dreamlike and exciting and transformative. We engage in multi-year qualitative and quantitative research projects—for public and private clients—to gather unique information about how the built environment influences experience, wellness, and behavior. We use this data to drive our clients’ ambitions into form, and look for clear results that we can learn from and carry forward.
