Larry Flack, Principal
Balancing thoughtful creativity with pragmatism is both Larry Flack’s trademark and a product of his three decades of design leadership. A principal at Runberg Architecture Group, Larry is recognized for optimal design solutions and high quality developments. His success derives from enduring, carefully nurtured relationships and a collaborative approach to project implementation.
The closely-knit alliances Larry fosters with development teams, consultants, community members, public agencies and clients lead to extraordinary results. His commitment to quality, attention to detail, thorough document coordination and remarkable design and development make Larry highly sought after by clients and partners.
Larry specializes in designing complex urban infill mixed-use and senior housing projects up and down the West Coast. The award-winning jobs he’s led for Runberg include the Expo Apartments adjacent to Seattle Center and the Ballard Tallman, a mixed-use development in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood. Larry’s deep interest in building codes, construction types and the entitlement process, along with his skill at anticipating and resolving potential challenges before complications arise, have given him an enviable reputation for directing difficult development projects. His patience and dedication make Larry an outstanding mentor to younger firm staff.
An award-winning architect, Larry’s work received three 2013 Gold Nugget Awards from the Pacific Coast Builders Best for the Expo and Ballard Tallman and a 2012 Gold Nugget for the Boards Mixed-Use Project. He gives back to the community through involvement with the Bainbridge Island Architectural Review Committee, a group dedicated to local design standards. Outside the studio, Larry enjoys the outdoors and spending time with his wife and three daughters.
Larry received his Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Oregon. Before joining Runberg in 2005, he was with James Guthrie & Associates in San Mateo, Calif.
