TruexCullins

Design Excellence

At TruexCullins, our primary focus is to maintain a high standard of design excellence.  We do this by meeting our clients’ needs with creative design solutions of enduring value, comfort and beauty.

Our success is measured by the performance of our projects, by the awards we have received over the years, and, ultimately, by the approval of those who matter most: the users and owners of the buildings and interior spaces we are entrusted with designing.

Blending Beauty and Performance

Our design approach is based on the successful fusion of the technical needs of a building with the art of shaping space and material. We believe this combination of art and science is the essence of what constitutes design excellence.

We strive to design buildings and spaces that are admired and loved, that fulfill their function effortlessly, and age gracefully. Such buildings are in harmony with their environment and their users. This is beauty that endures.

Small Projects with a Big Impact

Beyond buildings, our creative work includes the design of custom furniture, fixtures and follies.  These small-scale projects are a chance for us to explore innovative design concepts, in a collective effort that involves designers from all corners of our office.

We often have a hand in the fabrication of these structures, and we bring the knowledge we gain of materials and assembly to our larger architectural and interior design projects in all four of our design studios.
