Steve Lane
Principal Architect

Steve is the founder and Principal Architect of BASIS and a licensed architect in the States of Colorado and Wyoming. Steve has over 25 years of experience in the field of architecture and design. He received his Bachelor of Architecture from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York. Moving to Denver in 1993, he was involved with many of the first loft renovation projects in Lower Downtown, sparking his interest in revitalizing communities.

Outside of work, Steve’s passions are getting outside and sometimes far away from man-made structures, exploring culinary creativity, and spending time with family.

Jayson McMurren
Project Architect

As a Colorado Native from the western slope Jayson grew up skiing, biking and loving the CO lifestyle. Starting as a builder in high school he quickly felt a draw to be on the other end of the plans. This led to Architecture and a degree from The University of Colorado, Boulder with a Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Design and then a License to practice in Colorado.

He has designed and built for custom home builders in our beautiful mountain towns for 10+ years and has done custom home design on his own as well.  Still, his best work is with the BAS1S team designing anything from new custom homes or making that old home more personalized to creating a great commercial space that will bring customers in again and again.

Amy Lane
Branding Principal

Amy comes from a business background rather than one of design. She earned her B.A. in Psychology and B.S. in Business Administration with a Marketing emphasis from the University of Colorado in 1993. Her past business experience helps her understand the mechanics of how businesses run, and how they make money. As a result, the designs she creates focus on clear and succinct communication that increases awareness and translates into a healthier bottom line.

When Amy is not working on helping improve businesses’ presence, she is out hiking, skiing, biking and helping her kids find their place in the world.

We believe strongly that design can improve multiple aspects of our lives and every-day experiences. Our process starts with that end experience in mind. We spend time researching and working with you to define what you want your customers to feel about their interaction with your space, your brand, or how you want your life to look in your own space. That end experience guides all of our design decisions; ceiling height, color scheme, natural lighting, division of space, and for businesses, store front allure, communication effectiveness and even translation of this experience through the virtual world of your web presence.
