PRESTON MARTIN

Preston was introduced to architecture through a program in St. Louis, Missouri that focused on a range of construction trades and skills. Intrigued by engineering systems and concept designs, he was drawn to architecture’s potential to combine his love of people with construction. This led Preston to Tuskegee University where he earned a Bachelor of Architecture degree, and then to Savannah College of Art & Design for his Master of Fine Art in Historic Preservation.

Preston enjoys engaging with people and focuses on the effect spaces have and their use in built environments. Preston believes, “It’s not enough to build, but to actually alter the perception a person has through size, color, texture and location. One space does not necessarily fit all.” In his work at LSY, Preston applies the technical aspects of architectural design, building systems and research to meet the needs of various project types. He appreciates the challenges inherent in renovation projects and the application of construction phasing to minimize the disruption of ongoing operations within occupied facilities.

During his down time, Preston pursues new adventures with his wife and son -- travelling, listening to all types of music, dancing, and above all – eating! They love trying new foods, especially ones that are culturally important to friends and family. Preston also enjoys photography and advocating for Mental Health.
