About Brian Lathrop, Architect & Architecture For Health: Architecture Firm Servicing Palm Coast, St. Augustine and Daytona Beach

Brian Lathrop, Architect & Architecture For Health was founded in 1999 by Brian Lathrop in order to provide specialized medical design services exclusively to health care providers. While the firm continues to provide ambulatory healthcare and medical design services to developers, medical group practices and hospitals, the focus has been expanded to include residential architecture and some church architectural projects. Whether the project is for medical office, surgery, diagnostic imaging or your personal residence; our goal is to help our clients find the solution that makes sense not only functionally and aesthetically, but also financially. We believe that our specialization and unique approach allow us to provide services that are far more comprehensive and of exceptional value to our clients. This is evidenced by the fact that we have rarely produced a project that has not proceeded to construction. Located in Palm Coast, Florida, the firm's focus includes the southeastern United States. Mr. Lathrop will consider travel as a consultant outside the region on a project by project basis.
