Bennett began his career over 20 years ago after graduating from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette with a Bachelor degree in Architecture. Shortly after returning from Dallas working for a prestigious residential architecture firm, Bennett opened his own office in Lafayette and quickly became an influential designer of homes in Traditional Neighborhood Developments throughout Louisiana.
In addition, he volunteers time to design homes for Habitat for Humanity, providing local families in need with design services. He has also served as Committee Chairman for the past three years for the Beaux Arts Ball Silent Auction which raises money for the College of Art and Design at his alma mater, ULL.
Ryan joined Sabatier Architecture in 2013. A Lake Charles native and ULL alum, he is responsible for designing, modeling and drafting at our firm. He is currently pursuing his architecture license.
The general process of designing a home or addition can be broken down into phases, each of which focuses on a different aspect of the project. Though these phases sometimes overlap, depending upon the nature of the project, an understanding of each is important in order to grasp the full scope of the architectural design process.
In most cases, our first meeting will be simply to become acquainted with one another and to establish whether to pursue your project together. There is no pressure to commit to our firm at this point. Bring any information you have gathered: site map, pictures, sketches, etc.
To make the designing process easier for both the architect and client, the best thing you can do is research. Create your own accounts on Pinterest and/or Houzz to organize your thoughts and figure out what you like and want. Make separate boards for different rooms in your house. When you post a picture, please write what you like about that image. That way, we will know exactly what your needs are. Follow our accounts as examples below:
