Member News — Matthew Wolfe Joins LAN Associates as Director of Architecture
February 7th, 2019

With the new year comes new beginnings. LAN welcomes Matthew Wolfe, AIA, LEED AP BD+C as the New Jersey Director of Architecture.

With over 13 years of industry experience, Matt brings an eclectic portfolio of architectural accomplishments and a diverse background to LAN. His work spreads across the United States as well as internationally, as he has led projects for multiple hospitality, commercial, retail and mixed-use clients. Matt’s passion for sustainability and historic adaptive reuse adds another skill set to the firm’s elite team of architects.

“The Director of Architecture plays a major role in the work that we do,” said Kenneth Karle, President of LAN Associates. “Matt supports and manages our architectural department in their quest to create cutting edge design solutions, while also bringing a new perspective. The combination of Matt’s instinctive leadership skills, paired with his design passion, makes him an ideal fit for this position.”

Committed to a lifestyle of community service and leveraging his professional skills to make a difference, Matt continues to volunteer with local non-profits and international organizations. He was co-founder of Solid Foundation, a local youth mentoring program that designed skateboard parks throughout New Jersey and also led the design efforts for the Dream Center, an 8-acre mixed use community development serving the war-torn village of Adak, Uganda.

While Matt proclaims that he “fell into architecture,” his keen eye for design, love for construction, and passionate spirit have confirmed this path is more than a career but instead his calling. Taking on this leadership role at LAN was a natural next step for him. “Having a growth mindset has been key throughout my career. While I’ve had fantastic mentorship and some of the best professional training in the industry, this opportunity at LAN is an exciting step for me,” said Matt Wolfe, Director of Architecture. “I am thrilled to join a multi-disciplined firm and I hope to continue to strengthen and push the company forward.”

Matt leads LAN’s New Jersey architecture department which includes fifteen architects. He has begun design work on multiple projects, participating in strategic planning initiatives and has quickly become a key member of the LAN team.
