Bill, a native of Laurel, Mississippi, has been fascinated by architecture and residential design ever since he can remember. Growing up on a farm in Rural Jones County he often visited Laurel and was fascinated by the magnificent homes of varying architectural styles that lined its streets lined with live oaks. Bill started collecting house plan books while in elementary school and had his first home design built during his freshmen year of college. In 2006, Bill graduated Mississippi State University with a Bachelors of Architecture and was awarded the Jurist Award and a Scholarship by Marvin Integrity to study at Ghost 8, a Design/Build workshop, in Nova Scotia, Canada. Over the years Bill has worked in the offices of Albert & Associates in Hattiesburg, MS, Foil Wyatt Architects in Jackson, MS, and Robert A.M. Stern Architects in New York City. In 2011 Bill moved his Residential design business, Holloway Home Designs, to Hattiesburg, MS to be the Lead Designer for Madewell Home who was the primary Builder/Designer for Big Bay Lake, a 1,000 acre Lake Community. While at Madewell Home Bill and Luke Sippel designed over 150 projects. In January of 2015 Luke Sippel and Bill Holloway formed Lake And Land Studio, LLC specializing in residential design.

Cori, a graduate of The University of Southern Mississippi, obtained her Bachelor of Science in Architectural Engineering Technology. She grew up in Overland Park, Kansas for the most part of her life before moving back to Sumrall, MS to be closer to her family. In the 7 th grade she took an elective class called tech ed which sparked her interest in architecture when she was taught to draw a floor plan from scratch. After finishing high school and most of her college basics, she was given a teaching assistant job for the School of Construction at Southern Miss, where she was able to use her skills to help fellow students learn software and complete correct construction documents. Cori is now part of our team putting all her skills to work.
