DC District Condominiums
Inspired by nearby Lake Avenue District, this compact urban-style housing with high-end contemporary design and commercial uses at street level; looks to enhance this up and coming neighborhood. Primary design amenities include a variety of outdoor spaces for both public and private use, such as the sheltered pedestrian arcade along the street, a private roof terrace, generous balconies, and a central interior landscaped courtyard.
Our newly finished multi-family development is receiving great praise. We paid attention to each detail to express the elegance of this Spanish-style dwelling.
This new contemporary downtown development boasts 21 models ranging from compact 1-bed flats to spacious 3-bed townhouses. Completion is anticipated early 2016.

We couldn't be more pleased
Rob has done a number of architectural projects for our home here in San Marino. We couldn't be more pleased with his creativity and professionalism. Each time a project comes to an end, we wouldn't think of calling anyone else.
As Mayor of the City of San Marino, I can attest to Rob's knowledge of City design parameters and codes. His projects are welcome by our Planning and Building department staff, as they know his work will be up to San Marino standards.
My wife and I have been happy to recommend Rob to a number of friends over the years. We are pleased to recommend him now to anyone looking for outstanding architectural services.

We are now a repeat client
TGA provided professional and comprehensive design services for my Municipal client--the finished project received a LEED Platinum Award and garnered praise from executive management and the general contractor responsible for construction. TGA developed a viable program and design solution that exceeded all client expectations. TGA was a viable Team Player and was instrumental in the timely implementation of this unique project that was completed on time, within budget, and met all quality requirements. The professionalism, design expertise, follow-through on commitments, and its cooperation and coordination skills have sold my Municipal client on TGA services. In fact, they have already awarded TGA another building project on its campus.

CALTECH DINING HALL
Enjoyed our relationship
Just wanted to let you know that Caltech enjoyed our relationship on the architectural work that your firm did for us in 2004-2005 on the Chandler Dining Hall servery. The 10,000 square foot rehabilitation and addition to the main dining hall at Caltech has been well received by faculty, students and staff.
The design you created made it a very exciting facility to dine in, and enabled us to serve a lot more people than we could previously.
Again, thanks for all your efforts and I wish you the best in all your future endeavors. Of course, we'll keep your firm in mind for future projects.

Rob and his team were great partners in a big renovation and restoration of my 1924 Spanish Colonial home in Pasadena. Rob engaged my sometimes crazy inspirations and made them work in practical, cost saving ways. In the end we created a gracious, light-filled home that honors its historic roots and is up-to-date at the same time.
Professional and a pleasure to work with
I am a developer of single family homes and multi-family homes and genuinely appreciate building good quality homes with outstanding craftsmanship. Rob Tyler is knowledgeable and professional with a great eye for design. It has been a pleasure working with him and his firm. I can confidently recommend Rob for any design needs.
We Love It
I want you to know that the new space is simply fantastic. You listened to us and were able to somehow make sense of what we wanted. You were right about everything. It's just wonderful. Can't wait for you to come and enjoy it. We love it. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
