TGA believes in connections and dependencies, both in the built environment and in the design process. We have a modern design sensibility, focusing on efficiency and clean lines, but we also believe that tradition and the traditional should be respected.
We work with our clients to allow appropriate, holistic solutions to emerge from the problems and potentials at hand. Design is a never a straight path to a single solution – experience has shown us that design solutions and opportunities can emerge at any time during the design or construction process.
A project is more than framing and finishes, soil and surroundings – it affects and informs the way you live your life. We strive to provide you with a design that will not only positively support you, but also provide you with moments of pause, reflection, and elation. Good design provides an intangible richness to daily life.
TGA is there for our clients every step of the way, from feasibility and initial consultations through design, permitting, and construction. Give us a call, send us an email, or drop by our office to see how TGA can help you with your next project.

I try and listen as much as possible to my clients. In the beginning, we meet to discuss wants, needs, and priorities. Then we try and sketch out some initial concepts and ideas, working through "what-if" options. Eventually we settle on a concept that you are happy with and I work to flesh that out a bit in order to get some initial pricing from general contractors.
Once an acceptable budget estimate, final scope of work, and general design is in place, I create the documents for permitting and construction. During construction, I am available for site meetings, helping the builder with any unforeseen issues, and making sure the end product matches the design.
I have a Master of Architecture degree from UT-Austin, as well as an Master of Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
Pricing structures vary according to the project. A typical new construction home is based on a percentage of estimated construction cost, provided by a general contractor of the client's choosing. Remodels, additions, and smaller projects can be hourly or a fixed fee, depending on the scope of work.
