Todd Davis brings 30 years of professional experience to a wide range of private residential and retail projects. He oversees all phases of design and construction on TDA projects from conception to completion. Before founding TDA in 2009, Todd honed his craft from New York to Paris, finally settling in the San Francisco Bay Area where he grew up. While attending the University of Southern California he was granted a fellowship to live in the historic Gamble House where he explored the details and materials of the Arts & Crafts movement. This experience along with the Mid-Century architecture of Los Angeles have influenced his design to this day.
The contemporary design and detail of each project begins with a thorough understanding of the client’s program and budget. The specific site and context are analyzed to find a solution that is sensitive to the natural and built condition. With a clear comprehension of the client’s expectations and site we present them with design opportunities to transform their ideas into built form. Traditional materials, such as wood, steel, concrete and stone are used in combination with state-of-the-art products to express the character of the architecture as a whole. Natural light and shadows are used to express texture and shapes while bringing a strong connection to the exterior site. Throughout the design and construction process we strive to deliver the highest level of project management and service to our clients.
