Who We Are

Our passion is designing buildings people love.


We are passionate about the city in which we live and work. From new construction, tenant fit-out adaptive reuse, preservation and restoration, we enjoy helping our clients create buildings that both strengthen the urban fabric, enhance communities, and foster a sense of place.

“Most important in this process for me as a new business owner was that I felt cared for throughout the work. We came away with a project I was excited about and was in line with my vision.”
-Tiffany Martin, Ignite Cycle

Housing is the foundation for communities. Our goal is to create places that people value and are proud to call home. Our multifamily housing expertise spans building types as broad and diverse as the communities they create. We specialize in workforce housing, market-rate, mixed use, luxury and university residence halls. No matter the type we embrace every opportunity to transform the complexities of attached housing into great living environments.

Line Scale Form has completed over 100 multifamily developments with our first client, and has designed over 14,000 dwelling units.
