As one of the oldest architectural firms in New Jersey, Ignarri Lummis Architects celebrated their 100th anniversary this March. In March of 1921, the firm opened under the name Lackey and Hettel after principals Benjamin Lackey and Norman Hettel. Over the next few decades, the firm saw several name changes but continued to provide the same purpose, direction, and expertise that it is known for today. With core values of communication, approachability, and reliability, Ignarri Lummis has become nationally recognized for its exceptional approach to architecture and design.
Ignarri Lummis’s team of professionals has proven experience and history in delivering comprehensive solutions to their clients. Licensed and active nationwide, they offer a diverse background of project experience. Originally known for government work in the Camden, New Jersey area, the firm now has a vast portfolio of work spanning an entire century including retail, self-storage, automotive, and senior living. Ignarri Lummis Architects recognizes their historic milestone and is eager to continue to provide exceptional service for years to come.
