Our Story

For 33 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.
