David Lloyd

David Lloyd, Principal, Archetype

After spending 3 “quality” years in the US Army from 1966-1969, David took a creative tour of architectural schooling; combining Wentworth Institute, the Architectural Association in London, England and completing his Bachelor of Architecture degree at the Boston Architectural Center. Starting his career in Boston working for several large firms, including IM Pei and Parnters, he relocated to Bangor, Maine in 1978 where he partnered with his Architect father, George Lloyd. During this time he worked on small scale office buildings and homes all while renovating an 1864 farm house with very little in the way of funds and simultaneously trying to help raise his two children, Erika and Dylan. Portland, Maine seemed to be calling out, looking to offer more architectural opportunities and a more urban lifestyle. So, in 1982, he moved to Portland and joined up with Bill Hopkins starting the firm Archtellic. In the early 1990s, Architellic became Archetype and settled into a comfortable size firm of 8 architects.
