Tyler A. Smyth, AIA, LEED AP

Our architectural practice is based out of our Charleston peninsula studio.  We deliver creative solutions in custom residential and light commercial architecture in the varied environments and communities of the Lowcountry. I am a Registered Architect in South Carolina and Virginia, and a LEED AP with membership in the US Green Building Council. I have over a fifteen years of experience in practicing architecture in the Charleston region, focusing on peninsular Charleston and the Sea Islands.

I earned a Masters Degree in Architecture from Clemson University in 2003 after completing the Post Baccalaureate program. I have traveled and studied extensively in Europe, particularly Italy, where I was based at the Daniel Center in Genoa for a semester.  My undergraduate education yielded a Bachelor of Science degree in biology from Vanderbilt University in 1996.

Over the years we have had the good fortune of working with some of the most discriminating clients and finest builders in the region. We are craftsmen at heart, and believe that creating good design is about more than making handsome drawings. Maintaining a keen grasp of construction principles and leveraging the knowledge and talent of experienced tradesmen is of critical importance to maximizing the potential in any project.

Our staff of architects is skilled, creative, and attentive to our clients needs. We believe that the solution for every project springs from channeling our clients' needs along with the unique attributes of the building site, with the design of each project being as unique as a fingerprint.
