Andrea Michael spent the first five years of her architectural career working in the public sector and the next five focused on residential interiors. This broad spectrum of experience has made her able to appreciate the joys and challenges that come with both types of projects, and everything in between. Andrea is a practical thinker and a hands-on maker of things. She also has experience in business development and management. Her role at LSA is balanced between architectural design and business development duties. She is a licensed Architect in the State of Montana.
In addition to her role at LSA, Andrea runs a small business and spends as much time outside with her husband and two young children as possible.
Jennisse is interested in architectural solutions that put the comfort of the occupants first while prioritizing renewable building materials and passive energy strategies. She believes that a space truly becomes a Home when a connection to natural surroundings is combined with cutting edge efficient building practices. She is especially interested in design solutions for small spaces and accessory dwelling units. She puts these beliefs and practices to the test daily by living in the tiny house (320 square feet) that she designed and built herself with her parents over the summer of 2017.
Her education includes a Bachelor of Science in Geology from University of Puget Sound in Tacoma and a Master’s in Architecture from Montana State. She holds certifications in WELL, LEED and will soon be a Certified Passive House Consultant. She lives just outside of Bozeman with her two dogs and two Siamese cats.

His past projects have ranged from minor residential additions to military bases and nearly everything in between.

Kluane is enthralled by the positive impact architectural design can have on individuals, families, and society at large. She believes that every project should both reflect and enhance the lives of its inhabitants. In addition to her experience in Landscape Design, Kluane has worked in both the production, and design wings of architectural firms, and finds value in designs that are inspired, yet down-to-earth. Speaking of earth, Kluane is also an advocate for natural building materials’ ability to make a big impact on inhabitants’ lives, in balance with making minimal impact on the environment.
When not designing, Kluane may be found on a bicycle, a set of cross-country skis, or having a spirited architecture discussion over a home-brewed cup of coffee.
