Louis Joyner Architect is a small Columbus, Indiana-based architectural practice offering planning and design services for commercial, residential, institutional, and historic preservation projects. 

Established in 2000, the firm draws upon many years of experience with a broad range of architectural projects. Central to our practice is a deep sense that the role of an architect is to understand, manage and balance the competing forces that affect an architectural project. We believe that design serves the client best when use our aesthetic sense to reflect the values and functional goals of our client, and allow it to be tempered by the realistic constraints of practical and financial considerations. We work hard to understand our clients and their needs, using care and experience to provide buildings that are pleasing, sound, and memorable.
