Design Legacy Through the Hands of Many

Innovative. Collaborative. Insightful.


tvsdesign was founded by Bill Thompson, Tom Ventulett and Ray Stainback to provide inspired design through a close collaborative relationship with our clients. Nearly 50 years and millions of square feet around the globe later, the firm remains committed to this simple but powerful approach.

At tvsdesign, we imagine more for our clients – from seeing the real potential in a project to finding smart solutions to complex design challenges. We focus on the smallest details, while never losing sight of the big idea, and hone in on what provides the most value to our clients.

tvsdesign has had significant influence on cities and the built environment through the design of major urban public spaces in cities throughout the world. By creating good public spaces that energize neighborhoods, our projects generate additional wealth above and beyond their stated purpose. These are places where people feel that they are part of the dynamism of their city, generating cultural growth and development.
