Tina Geary, AIA, LEED AP

“A good client-architect relationship is all about trust.”
Tina speaks from the heart, builds strong rapport with clients, and uses her creativity as a designer and sense of collaboration to elicit projects with warmth, comfort, and authentic representation of her clients’ lifestyles or business identities. She offers genuine concern for her clients’ needs, wishes, lifestyles, and budgets - and balances all for results that push expectations. Tina’s strengths include graphics and visualization, the complexities of home or restaurant kitchen design, and the deft negotiation of spouses who can’t agree on design decisions.
