Who We Are
Collaborating with the World
Design is measured by how well it fits into the environment, how it enhances the community and enriches the culture. Ultimately a positive human response completes the collaborative intentions of the designer and client. tvsdesign was founded in 1968 on the basis of inspired design and close dialogue with its clients.
tvsdesign is 100% employee owned and is organized into twelve studios, each under the guidance of a principal of record, bringing a direct and single source responsibility to our clients. Project quality assurance is the result of internal peer reviews of design, technical and project delivery issues at the completion of each benchmark phase of a project schedule. It is this stewardship over quality assurance, our culture of ownership, and consistent design excellence that prompted industry leaders to recognize tvsdesign as with the 2002 AIA National Firm Award.
Through our design studio structure, tvsdesign works on every project with the resources necessary to balance design, technology, and business. Principals assign and lead teams with the experience appropriate to all aspects of the project,providing continuity throughout the process. Through collaboration tvsdesign provides proven, inspired design insight to meet the unique challenges of each client’s vision.
tvsdesign has designed important spaces and buildings for over four decades. Over 240,000,000 people directly experience tvsdesign environments each year. Of these, 350,000 are employed in the firm’s work environments, 600,000 shop at its retail complexes and over 100,000 stay or meet in one of our hotels, every day, while 40,000,000 meet and convene each year at its public assembly facilities. The firm has concentrated its efforts on client satisfaction through architecture that not only sets the standard for excellence in design, but also serves the business expectations of our clients, the cultural desires of the community, and as an engine for economic growth and development.
tvsdesign has had a significant influence on cities and the built environment through the design of major urban public spaces. Among the great cities of the world, there are often a few central focal points and favorite gathering places that give to that city a certain distinction and identity. tvsdesign has been fortunate to design landmark and important urban projects and places in large and small cities throughout the world. By creating good public space that energizes neighborhoods, tvsdesign projects generate additional wealth above and beyond their stated purpose. These are places where people feel that they are part of the dynamism of their city, generating cultural growth and development.
A love of creating positive resident and visitor experiences influences our entire process and leads us to solutions that are compelling, surprising, memorable and comfortable. Each design solution is unique and designed to fit its location and the quality of our client’s aspirations. While it is the view of the individual user that inspires us on a daily basis, our communication with our clients and strong business and technological acumen provide the underpinnings of success for our work. This leads us to informed and insightful designs, based on a comprehensive understanding our clients’ aesthetic and business vision.
tvsdesign has expanded its business to regions both nationally and internationally, opening the Chicago office in 1999, the Dubai, UAE office in 2005 and an office in Shanghai in 2007, establishing a global reach. This international perspective has brought another level of expertise in design, creating projects that have become integral parts of the economic and cultural life of local and international places.

Attention to Detail
The integrity of planning, architecture, interior design and sustainability is effectively measured in the details. From the planning stages through execution, details create value, stimulate personal interest and provide finishing touches that humanize buildings and space.
