FIRM MISSION
Tektonika Studio Architects mission is based upon the three core concepts of commitment, integrity and responsibility.

OUR COMMITTMENT
As a service provider, TSA is committed to each and every one of our clients in meeting their
dreams and aspirations and in facilitating an effective team in the implementation of each
and every project.

INTEGRITY
As an architectural practice, TSA is dedicated to the integrity of a thoughtful, skillful and creative approach to our design process resulting in and exemplified by our finished buildings.

RESPONSIBILITY
As creators of our built environment, TSA is responsible to providing a positive impact upon the communities we serve and upon our natural environment.

CLIENT COMMITTMENT
At TSA we believe that the success of our practice is directed through the people and relationships we establish with each of our projects. With our clients, our consultants and our contractors, we strive to establish and provide effective team building. It is our belief that the process of design and building should be an enjoyable and enriching experience. Superior and dynamic communications and dialogue is an important means to this end.

A critical component of our client commitment is to the establishment and adherence to budget parameters. In conjunction with the development of the client program we will establish the project budget prior to initiating design work. Through an established cost estimating process we will regularly confirm that the evolving design meets the project budget.

DESIGN INTEGRITY
Vermont Sustainable DesignTSA subscribes to a vigorous and creative design process which is open to many sources of inspiration. In achieving this, we draw upon the needs and imagination of our clients, and the context and history of our natural and built surroundings. With each of our projects, we pursue a unique architectural vocabulary which is developed through the exploration, composition, and integration of building forms, spaces, and materials.

We are dedicated to the development and integration of a continually expanding body of technical knowledge. Our technical expertise is a critical component in the successful functioning and aesthetics of our buildings. To this end, we are conscious of proven and tested building materials and systems, while we simultaneously undertake the research and investigation of new products and methodologies.

With each of our projects we utilize this knowledge in the design of space integrated with the selection of systems and materials. In our design composition we strive to reveal the significance and beauty of the place where the project resides through the expression of the building. In making this connection we endeavor to create buildings of timeless beauty and inspiration which are a reflection of our individual clients and of the world and culture in which we participate.

RESPONSIBILITY AND SUSTAINABLE DESIGN
In keeping with our name Tektonika Studio Architects is responsible to an architecture that is reflective of our natural and built surroundings and which is supportive of our communities. We strive to be mindful of the lasting legacy, which we leave upon the places where we dwell and upon our planet at large. To this end TSA has always pursued environmentally responsible design as a guiding principal.  In recent years we have built upon this experience with the emergence of new sustainable technologies and products and with the institution of third party verification such as LEED, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. We continue to encourage and build upon our experience in sustainable design which allows our buildings to make a harmonious connection to our natural environment.
