Designing and Building Your Dream Home

Converting an Abandoned Building into Your New Custom Home

In this program we discuss the advantages of restoring and repurposing existing structures; converting an abandoned warehouse into a custom home, and converting an existing home into an office. We also discusses how the time my guest spent practicing architecture in Japan influences the homes he designs.  

My guest is Warren K. Lloyd AIA, LEED AP. Warren has been practicing architecture for 20+ years. He received a Masters of Architecture from the University of Washington in 1991. During his graduate work, he was a Monbusho scholar at Kobe University in Japan for 2 years.  

Warren’s personal interest in architecture has led him to seek innovative and sustainable uses of traditional wood construction in his projects located throughout the Intermountain West, the Pacific Northwest, and Japan. He worked in Seattle and Japan for several noted architects, including NBBJ, The Miller-Hull Partnership and Thomas L. Bosworth FAIA.  

Warren was named a partner of Lloyd Architects in Salt Lake City in 1998, managing partner in 2000, and principal in 2001. Warren is the 2023 AIA CRAN National Chairman and Lloyd Architects was named 2022 Firm of the Year by AIA Utah.
