framework design was founded in 2003 as a way to further explore design and art while working within the field of architecture. Our diverse team experience covers the gamut from affordable housing and custom homes to skyscrapers, modern office buildings, corporate campuses, educational facilities, historic rehabs, sports venues and civic projects.
Our goal is to make our clients' lives better and more enjoyable through good design.
Although most accurately described as eclectic modernists in style, we offer services that
include everything from architectural design, feasibility studies, code analysis and
permitting, interiors, landscape and even graphic design.
In the spring of 2018, framework design partnered with C&S Design & Engineering in Ashland, Wisconsin and now operates as a division of the Northern United States firm.

Lauren graduated from Kansas State University and worked for firms in Kansas, Chicago and San Diego, before starting framework design. She's now the principal and co-owner at our Wisconsin office, C&S Design & Engineering, and splits time between both offices. She holds 25 licenses including a license to practice architecture in 19 different states.
Lon, our lone Jayhawk, has a degree in architecture from Kansas University (we don't hold that against him) and has experience in development, architecture and construction management on projects throughout the Midwest. He is good at giving direction, but that is not to say anyone ever follows those instructions. His experience includes civic, institutional, commercial and residential work. Lon is licensed to practice architecture in the states of Missouri, Kansas and Arizona. He is also NCARB certified and maintains a Class ‘A’ General Contractor license. He spends most of his spare time herding cats...
Layne is a Kansas State University graduate who has worked for firms in Dallas, Chicago and Toledo, Ohio prior to joining Lauren at framework design. Now living in the Northwoods of Wisconsin and working from our C&S Design & Engineering office, he continues to serve his framework design clients while enjoying views of Lake Superior. His career has included residential, commercial, industrial, healthcare, law enforcement and education projects. When he isn’t at work, he can usually be found exploring the natural beauty of his new home and seeking the best cheese curds it has to offer.

Taylor started as our architectural intern back in 2012 as a masters of architecture graduate from Kansas State University. Today as a registered architect in Missouri and Kansas, she is the Division Head and Project Architect for our Kansas City based office. She has a talent for the details that create quality design, efficient project management and thorough construction administration services.
She is experienced in both residential and commercial design, from small local businesses and single-family homes to large multi-family residential developments. For the past four years, she has specialized in the design and project management of large scale development projects nationally. She has a thorough understanding of tax credits and the project requirements associated with federal funding sources.
When she isn’t managing projects, creating graphics, proposals or developing business, she can most likely be found in the great outdoors, walking around with Berlin (dog child), in the kitchen trying out new baking techniques or working on any number of various house projects.
