Tusick & Associates Architects, Inc. believes that architecture is a fine art that everyone physically experiences. To create this fine art, you have to be an architect committed to excellence and must constantly balance three design components: aesthetics, function, and economics.

A key component in balancing the aesthetics, function, and economics is you, the client. You, as a collaborating partner in shaping the program, determining a direction, and defining a project are extremely valuable. Our design approach is to be flexible and adaptable, not pre-determined or rigid; always listening and questioning throughout the design process to apply our knowledge and experience with your input. This creates a responsive, creative, exciting, accessible, and sustainable design that meets the unique challenges and opportunities of your project. Our final goal is to delight you.

Founded in 1994 by Susan B. Tusick, the firm is a 100% woman owned business. Susan strongly believes in accessibility and sustainability; to the point that she is a LEED AP. Under her leadership, the firm is committed to design excellence with a staff dedicated to providing our clients with highly professional services.
