Our Story

For 31 years, Landis Architects/Builders has been one of the Washington DC area’s top design/build firms.

Founded by brothers Chris & Ethan Landis in 1990, Landis was created with a commitment to quality, service, and innovation. Over the years, much has changed as the firm has grown in both size and reputation, but our dedication to the original commitments remains the same.

Our Team

As a firm, we recognize that our people are what make us who we are. Every one of our team members is equally passionate about delivering quality design, craftmanship, and customer service.
