Paul Basham


Paul’s forte is creating dynamic social spaces inside and out. Starting with a story and theme, every design concept focuses on enveloping the user and creating an indelible sense of place. Through 32 years of experience, he has garnered a vast knowledge and understanding of architectural design and assemblies, as well as a thorough understanding of landscape architecture. Knowing and understanding the fundamentals of both design disciplines allows for an incredible unity in the built structure and how it relates to the surrounding environment.

The firm was established by Paul in 1998 after attending the University of Florida, College of Architecture, and working 16 years with one of the leading architectural firms in Jacksonville. Since then, Basham & Lucas has become known for its depth of understanding of strategic planning and market driven trends related to Planning, Architecture and Landscape Architecture. The company portfolio consists of hundreds of projects delivered to more than 50 (primarily repeat) clients. These institutions and development groups trust in the delivery of outstanding design thinking and all subsequent documentation.
