Designing environments that reflect the spirit, purpose and vision of our clients.

Founded in 1990 and located in the Brewery District in Columbus, Ohio, Lupton Rausch Architecture + Interior Design is an established full-service Architectural and Interior Design firm.

Lupton Rausch Architecture + Interior Design has established itself in the central Ohio market as a firm committed to technical expertise and design excellence. Composed of a group of highly talented and innovative individuals, we have consistently proven the reputable value of our service by providing creative, responsible design solutions that support the long-range business strategies of our clients.

Our firm approaches a project with the simple philosophy that the best possible design, technical and management team should be made available to our clients. These professionals will remain consistent from the project inception through its completion. A principal of the firm provides overall project direction to ensure compliance with the client’s objectives of budget, schedule and design direction, while a project manager is responsible for the day-to-day activities of the project.

We use computer technologies which are at the forefront of our industry, creating design concepts and developing projects through construction documentation, including visualization tools which allow Clients a full understanding of their project.
 We have the necessary technical expertise to fully collaborate with consultants, trade partners and manufacturing entities.



The operational and physical requirements of a facility are defined by functional and space programming. Lupton Rausch Architecture + Interior Design works closely with a client during this phase to gather information about ideas, images, philosophy and culture, as well as details about how the particular organization operates. It is our philosophy that anything that affects the design, schedule and cost of a project will be known at the conclusion of the programming stage. Significant data may include employment and productivity forecasts, work or activity flow analyses, traffic patterns, workplace standards and specific task requirements. An accurate and detailed programming phase results in cost efficient space concepts and encourages an environment that responds to the needs of its users.

Site Analysis

Staff also can facilitate required zoning approvals by working closely with the client as well as community groups and municipalities.
