Based on Northern Virginia, Loveless Porter Architects, LLC has provided full architectural and engineering services since 1975. Led by Sean M. Porter, the firm is dedicated to maintaining a reputation based on thoroughness and responsiveness. With a team of three lead architects and support staff, Loveless serves commercial clients in Virginia, D.C. , Delaware and Maryland, as well as other areas of the Mid-Atlantic.  Services include programming, design development, construction documents, bidding and construction contract administration. Here, we see design challenges as opportunities for creativity and customization.

Clients credit Loveless Porter, winner of the 2016 and 2017 “Virginia Living” Best of Virginia Award, for helping them to achieve their architectural vision on time, and in budget, and guiding them through a complex maze of permitting and regulations.  

Loveless Porter brings their expertise to a diverse set of government, retail, commercial, and institutional projects including medical facilities, churches, breweries/distilleries, schools, fitness centers and manufacturing facilities, plus numerous renovations and tenant build-outs. Our reputation is based on a thorough understanding of the project and its implementation. Good design – grounded in practical knowledge of construction – and detailed construction documents are hallmarks of our work.
