With 30 years at LPA, Chris Lentz has influenced the interior design solutions of many civic and corporate projects. Her leadership style has proved successful in both small team structures and as an integral part of large team institutional design project. Her approach, based in thoughtful planning and execution, has led to many successful outcomes.

With dedicated effort in more than 45 projects in cities and counties of California, she has gained a vast range of knowledge in the interior process and public bid documentation. The types of projects include crime and law enforcement facilities, county administration facilities, emergency call centers, public libraries, city halls and community centers.

Currently, Lentz is developing a new focus as a corporate strategic planner. She considers it a priority to think beyond the initial project build and consider how the corporate environment will adapt to future influences. By nature, this thought process supports a more sustainable environment. A few clients Lentz has worked with include Blizzard Entertainment, Capital Group, Cox Communications, Mazda,Toyota, Western Digital and Capital Group.

As Managing Director in the Irvine Urban Design Studio, Lentz has oversight in the development of the interiors group talent. As an objective team leader, she is involved in training and mentoring many of the professionals who participate in the ‘LPA University’.
