Tobin Symmank, NCARB

“Design is intentional. It’s what separates the mindful from the mundane. It’s what elevates not just a form, but people - those who inhabit that form as well as those who view that form - to a place above the din of the commonplace. Good design elevates form. Great design elevates people. Strive for great!”

Mr. Symmank has been actively involved in Multifamily Architecture for over 20 years. Tobin believes that design and form are meant to serve the people for whom it was designed by giving them an authentic sense of space, enhancing their life, their well-being, their relationships with one another and the world around them. Tobin’s co-workers describe him as a leader and friend. He provides outstanding leadership and expertise for entitling High-Density Multifamily and Mixed-Use developments for AO. He is also a LEED Accredited Professional on the forefront of the Green Building Industry offering insight and a realistic approach to project sustainability.

Tobin in three words:

Innovative. Intuitive. Intentional.
