Liollio Elevates Michael Edwards, AIA, LEED AP to Associate Principal

Mez Joseph

Liollio Architecture is pleased to announce the elevation of Michael Edwards, AIA, LEED AP to Associate Principal. Michael received his Master of Architecture and Bachelor in Design from Clemson University, where he also studied at the Clemson Architectural Center in Charleston and abroad at the Charles E. Daniel Center for Building and Urban Studies in Genoa, Italy.

For more than 21 years, Michael has had the privilege of designing health, community, commercial and residential projects. As Liollio’s Health & Wellness Leader, he is passionate about improving environments within our community. His current projects range from major medical center renovations and additions to the design of new medical offices, tenant upfits, urban infills, learning environments, hospice and palliative care, senior and adult day facilities, and veteran enrichments.

Michael believes that all architecture should enhance the human experience, and if designed thoughtfully, buildings can heal the spirit, improve health and impact the human psyche. “Early in my career, I experienced the power of design as my grandmother’s ten-year battle with Alzheimer’s led to her becoming one of the patients in my first hospice facility. Intimately involved in her daily care, I observed first-hand the impact of environment on her health as she shifted from nursing home to hospital to hospice facility. Those personal experiences have guided me in every design, fueling my passion for experiential and healing design in every project.”
