Our Story

Design, in all respects, is the most important element of each project. In this regard, every project deserves a new and creative design solution based upon each project’s unique set of program requirements. Tushie Montgomery Architects has accomplished this on a wide variety of projects, both small and large in scale. Our staff consistently apply the knowledge gained from these varying projects to develop unique design solutions. This is a team effort with input from all members of the design team, starting with our clients. Combining the individual strengths of the team not only leads to successful projects but measures our success as a firm. This approach to design enables our client’s vision to become reality.

Tushie Montgomery Architects has a wide range of sustainable design experience. We incorporate several sustainable building strategies as standards into our projects, including low V.O.C. finishes and energy efficient HVAC systems. Over the years, we have been able to work with an increasing number of environmentally conscious clients who have pursued a more sustainable building design. Sustainable architecture should not be treated as a growing trend, but as a standard practice in good building design.

We have several LEED Accredited Professionals on staff who are ready to assist our clients with  their sustainable goals. We are always looking for new and innovative “green” opportunities to add to our growing list of expertise.
