Billy Lawrence, AIA

Senior Principal

A founding principal of Alamo Architects, Billy has led the firm’s practice in retail, mixed use development, and placemaking. His retail clients such as Simon Properties, The Rouse Company, Affinius Capital, General Growth Properties, Brookfield Properties, Hines, and Neiman Marcus represent the premier tier of retail developers nationwide. His work in national retail includes The Shops at La Cantera in San Antonio, Texas, The RIM Commons Park, and new Neiman Marcus stores in Austin and Fort Worth, Texas.

A background in brand development informed his design leadership of the adoption facility for the San Antonio Humane Society, an exuberant, upbeat, and internationally award-winning facility that presented a fresh look at the nature of animal sheltering.  Following this success was the campus expansion for SAHS to include a new veterinary hospital as well as a subsequent clinic now underway for the City of San Antonio Animal Care Services.

Bachelor of Architecture, University of Texas at Austin | 1978
