RENO, NEVADA

SENIOR PROJECT ARCHITECT – RENO, NV

Posted: 26 Nov 2019

TSK Architects is a highly acclaimed architecture, planning and interior design firm headquartered in Henderson, Nevada with offices in Los Angeles, Reno, Grand Rapids and Shanghai.

 

We first opened our doors in 1960, and quickly established a reputation for design excellence and superior client service. Today, our practice is grounded in the belief that ideas embodied in a design should be progressive and of our time, that site and context must play an integral role in the development of a building, and that the smallest detail of any building can be just as important to the design as larger and more apparent design language.

 

Furthermore, people who know us well will tell you that we`re characteristically collaborative – we take great pride in fostering a strong team ethic between our employees and project stakeholders to design buildings which inspire communities and fulfil their needs for decades.
