About Us

Talk is not cheap at Holly & Smith Architects.

That’s because we define talk as open dialogue with our clients , and we believe this is an invaluable first step in forming working relationships that produce meaningful, functional, beautiful buildings.

Our Purpose: To prosper creating great design that enriches peoples lives and nurtures our passion.

Founded in 1980, we are a full service professional architecture corporation based in Hammond and New Orleans, La. We have extensive experience serving commercial clients and academic, governmental and religious institutions across our region, while also completing select residential projects. We are specialists in historic renovation and adaptive reuse, master planning and interiors as well.

The leadership at H/S accumulates over 150 years of architectural expertise. The six shareholders of the firm, Michael Holly , Jeffrey Smith , Mark Beckers , Kevin Morris , Ryan Faulk and Pierre Theriot offer diverse backgrounds and complementary talents which are passionately inspired, regionally responsive, and progressive in their approach to master the various evolving challenges and issues that create high performing architecture.

Our work ranges from iconic landmark structures to buildings that blend seamlessly with their neighborhoods. They are all united by finely crafted design that fulfills our client’s needs; follow-through and attention to detail that surpasses expectation; and an approach and attitude at our firm that makes so many of our clients repeat customers.

H/S has recently self published a book entitled: “H/S: A Culture of Design”. Copies can be purchased at blurb.com. click here
