At Lenity Architecture, this simple but powerful word takes the form of strong relationships that make the commercial architecture or senior housing planning, design and building process seem effortless to the client.
Since our inception, we have planned and designed hundreds of projects and along the way we’ve always put relationships first. Our goal is to provide our clients a seamless and profitable planning, design and building experience while enriching the lives our staff, clients and those that enter the walls we help build.
Lenity Architecture is licensed in 36 U.S. states with architects in 6 additional states and 3 Canadian provinces. Our experience working with a wide range of different state and local jurisdictions means that our team is able to navigate even the most challenging permitting processes. With our team of 45 employees, including architects, engineers, drafters, site planners, permitting experts and administrative staff–there is always an expert available with well-informed and up to the minute answers about your project.
A culture of caring begins within the Lenity family–several members of which have been a part of the team for 10, 15, even 20 years. It would be an understatement to say we genuinely care for each other and the work that we do. Our legacy is being written by a team that wholeheartedly embraces each win for the company as a shared success with our clients. This spirit of caring extends to the planning and design process by putting usability and value at the forefront of each project. We strive to live up to our name and have found that a spirit of willingness, enthusiasm and respect are powerful drivers of long-term success. Decades of experience have taught us that regardless of the project size or complexity, there is great reward in seeing it through as a team.
Planning and architecture with genuine care. This is who we are and what Lenity Architecture has always stood for. It is a way of doing business that has always guided our path. It’s the future of our successful business and yours. This philosophy is what we call “The Lenity Way” and it is the driving force behind all we do at Lenity Architecture.

The word “lenity” is defined as the quality of caring, mildness and gentleness. We strive to live up to our name by stewarding our time and resources in a way that enhances the lives of our clients, staff and those that enter the walls we help build. As a team, we have witnessed the intoxicating highs and sobering lows of the industry economy and it’s taught us to cherish our relationships with each other and those we serve. Experience has also shown us the value of keeping what we have by giving it away.
The Lenity family currently serves nearly 30 Salem and Central Oregon nonprofits with their time and resources and the list continues to grow alongside the need. By supporting the organizations below as well as the Liberty House Child Abuse Assessment Center, Salem Keizer Meals on Wheels, and the Chemeketa Education Foundation, we are investing in the very foundation of our community’s future and honoring its residents–both young and old.
Boys & Girls Clubs of America
Lenity Architecture supports local non-profit agencies with their time. Daniel Roach, a shareholder at Lenity Architecture has served on the Board of Directors for the Boys & Girls Club in Salem for over ten years.
In every community, boys and girls are left to find their own recreation and companionship in the streets. An increasing number of children are at home with no adult care or supervision. Young people need to know that someone cares about them.
Boys & Girls Clubs offer that and more. Club programs and services promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence. Boys & Girls Clubs are a safe place to learn and grow — all while having fun. “They are truly The Positive Place For Kids.”
HOME Youth and Resource Center
Lenity Architecture is a proud supporter of the HOME Youth and Resource Center, a program of the Mid-Willamette Valley Community Action Agency. The HOME program provides resources for healthy living and a safe, supportive environment for Salem’s at risk and homeless youth. Through the program, youth ages 11 up to 18 have their immediate needs met and are given opportunities to positively reconnect with the community.
The Lenity family has supported the HOME Youth and Resource Center through over 80 hours of volunteer work including design services, cleaning and painting of the facility. Additionally, our firm, staff and clients have invested in Salem’s youth through cash donations, supplies and food.
In the words of a youth attendee, “HOME gave me someone to turn to when I needed help.” It’s an honor to support such a worthwhile and impactful organization!
