comma_symbolTCA differentiates itself from other design firms because they understand and care about the goals of every stakeholder in the planning and design process; from the Clients vision, to the governmental approval process, the neighborhood influences, the contractor’s needs, and the value and comfort enjoyed by the community’s ultimate residents.

- Steve Jones
CEO, Snyder-Langston

comma_symbolTCA is producing thoughtful design and is presenting it in ways that have made the city planners enthusiastic about our proposal. This adds tremendous value to our business. All the major developers work with TCA, and we are a small shop, but their level of service makes us sometimes feel as if we are their only client. I don't know how they do it, but it is good.

- Alex Wong
Principal and Co-Founder, Red Oak Investments

comma_symbolIn the last several years we have worked closely with TCA Architects on the design and development of multiple large scale luxury multifamily projects in Southern California. At every stage, they exceeded our expectations with their skill and professionalism, and were an absolute pleasure to collaborate with.

- Derek Picerne
Senior Associate, The Picerne Group

comma_symbolThe selection of an architect is an essential part of the development process. At Shea Properties we have chosen TCA for many of our urban projects and have consistently received an excellent product. The TCA designs are thoughtful and original, which adds value to the property. Beyond the design, TCA delivers complete and buildable plans facilitating the execution of the project with both the municipalities and the contractor. These attributes have made TCA one of our top architects of choice.

- Greg Anderson
Senior Vice President | Multifamily Development & Acquisitions, Shea Properties

comma_symbolTCA’s Graphic Design Studio has always provided us with thoughtful and creative designs, working alongside our architect, interior designer, and contractor.
