“Together, what we craft and create will inspire the return of fabrication and manufacturing careers to the resourceful neighborhoods that inspire us.”
Founded in the engine room of a decommissioned Wilkinsburg fire station, EngineHouse began in 2011 as the creative ambition of colleagues Adam Lackett and Kellen Fenaughty. The partners moved to Pittsburgh in 2003 to attend Carnegie Mellon’s School of Architecture and quickly fell in love with the city’s gritty character and architectural potential. After forays in the fields of architecture, construction, landscape design, and furniture making, they formed EngineHouse as a design-build practice with a holistic approach to the construction process. The group, now bolstered by Pittsburgh native and partner, Ian English, shares a passion for hard work, a love for honest materials, and a commitment to durable, long-lasting investments in local infrastructure.
