Who we are

Beegan Architectural Design, located in Lakewood, Ohio was founded in 2007 by Paul R. Beegan, AIA. Paul brings both sensibility and innovation to his design work, acquired through his initial degree in Civil and Structural Engineering from Purdue University and his Master of Architecture degree from Miami University. His fifteen years planning and design experience of civic, planning, corporate, and residential projects is augmented by a strong working knowledge of community planning, historic renovations including tax credits, and development. His client-centered approach to project design is well balanced by his experience in project delivery and construction management. Paul is registered to practice architecture in Ohio, Illinois, Virginia, Michigan, Tennessee, and Maryland.

“If you live your life severely but strongly, youth comes to you, everything blooms.”

LeCobusier, Feb. 1955
