db Architecture of Acadiana was established in 2011 by Architect, David Beverly, with the mission to provide clients with essential and elegant designs from residential to commercial projects. Chuck LeJeune, Assoc. AIA, joined with David and the db Architecture team in 2014 and coined the term “New Louisiana Architecture” while completing a stunning Acadian style home in Rural Louisiana. Having developed a deep respect for each other’s design sensibilities and work ethics as longtime friends in Architecture school, David and Chuck, with a combined experience of 20 years, lead an innovative team of designers who can handle any size project, residential or commercial. They have recently moved into a new office at 233 Doucet Road, Suite A2 in Lafayette (behind Zea’s, next to Red’s) and are excited about their growing presence and reputation in Lafayette, Louisiana.
