Tom Lane


Growing up in Massachusetts, Tom came to Maine every summer with family and friends. Fond memories of these experiences inspire his design work today. As an art student, Tom learned the importance of listening, observing, and drawing. Tom developed these skills abroad as a student in South America and Europe. As an architect, he employs these skills to understand and realize his client’s goals.

Tom has practiced in architectural offices in Boston and Salt Lake City where he worked on a variety of project types including art museum, library, and custom residential. Tom received a Bachelor of Fine Art from the University of Massachusetts Amherst and a Master of Architecture from the University of Utah where he was awarded the school’s highest design honor.

As an author and illustrator, Tom’s work is published in the Architect’s Guidebook to Structures text book. He has been a design critic at the University of Maine at Augusta, University of Massachusetts Amherst, and the University of Utah. Tom is a licensed architect in the State of Maine and a member of the American Institute of Architects.

Tom and his wife, Kari, live in Portland with their two daughters. As a family, they enjoy skiing in the mountains and playing on the local lakes and beaches.
