Matt Latchford

Principal ︱ studioi with Lam Partners

Matt joined Lam Partners’ team in 2006 and has literally taken the firm to new places.  After four years in the Cambridge office, he moved to Richmond, Virginia to start up the first Lam Partners satellite office, building Lam’s client base and reach to the mid-Atlantic region and beyond.  In 2018, he teamed up with Steve Iski and his lighting design firm, studio i in Pittsburgh, PA. This ushered in a merger between Lam Partners and studio i, creating a multi-dimensional/multi-location company.  Together with Steve, he leads the Pittsburgh office and the mid-Atlantic design efforts as a principal in the firm.
Matt is a licensed Professional Architectural Engineer, a Professional Member of the IALD, a LEED Accredited Professional, is NCQLP Lighting Certified, and a member of the IES.    Matt’s superior technical knowledge, with specialties in lighting controls systems and daylighting, has been his hallmark in recent work focusing on large-project and international sustainable design.  When not escaping to the hills for a hike or pushing his kids’ bikes, he dabbles in some extracurricular industry work — developing future code language, giving presentations, and teaching.  He has participated in local USGBC chapters, was a member of the IEQ TAG for the USGBC, and is a current member of the IALD’s Energy and Sustainability committee.
