Sean Lockyer
Sean Lockyer is the founding principal and lead architect for studio AR&D architects. Sean grew up on the east coast and came from a family of real estate developers. His early influences stem from his family’s business as well as time spent working with his hands in various trades, before, during, and after his education at Philadelphia University. These experiences helped shape his passion for craft, attention to detail, and his work ethic as it relates to construction and the built environment.

During and after his studies at university, Sean traveled abroad in Italy and Europe, South America, Southeastern United States, and finally to the West Coast where he opened a small practice in 2006

Sean’s choice for the direction of the firm has always been one that speaks to the craft and alliance between both architecture and the landscape. Since its inception, the firm began to truly explore the poetic relationships of space and materiality amongst interior and exterior environments. Due to its rich modern history of architecture as well as the temperate climate, Palm Springs, California was a natural starting place for Sean to begin the practice and grow its craft.

Sean continues to develop the deeper relationships and coexistence of material and space and their influences on our everyday lives. He has helped cultivate a body of work that is deeply influenced by the environment and the sense. He enjoys the time within the firm’s offices as much as on the construction sites working closely with the builders and craftsmen breathing life in to the firm’s designs.
