TLCD Architecture Receives Awards At AIA Redwood Empire Chapter Event


TLCD Architecture, a team of architects, interior designers, and collaborators designing community-oriented projects throughout Northern California, was the recipient of multiple AIA Redwood Empire awards at an event held on October 27th at the Kaiser Hanger at the Sonoma County Airport.

The DeTurk Round Barn project for the City of Santa Rosa received an Honor Award in the "Alteration/Restoration/Rehabilitation" category, and the new Maintenance Center project for Mendocino Transit Authority received an Honor Award in the "Built Project" category. "Being recognized by such a distinguished jury for these awards is truly a reflection of our commitment to the community, immensely supportive clients, and the high level of design these projects exhibit,” said Don Tomasi AIA, Senior Principal at TLCD.

The design awards were juried by a distinguished panel including Michael Palladino/FAIA of Richard Meier and Partners, Julie VandenBerg Snow/FAIA of Julie Snow Architects, Inc., Mary Griffin/FAIA of Turnbull Griffin Haesloop Architects, and Mayor Ernesto Olivares from the City of Santa Rosa.

The AIARE Awards also recognized individuals who have distinguished themselves in the Redwood Empire Chapter through an inaugural set of awards handed out at the event. TLCD had two team members recognized: Jaime Stich for Associate Member of the Year, and Nate Bisbee AIA, for Young Architect of the Year.

Jaime Stich has served on the AIARE Board for several years and leads the Associates program and licensing study group. "I have always been impressed by Jaime's commitment to architecture, sustainability and the community... his commitment goes well beyond personal interest or casual involvement; he actively participates and provides leadership and inspiration to others," said Jason Brabo AIA, Principal at TLCD.

Nate Bisbee has served in different capacities on the AIARE Board for many years, and was one of the organizers of the North X NorthCoast lecture series. "Nate's contributions in the field of architectural design have been focused on the exploration of a regional expression appropriate to our area...his vision and interest in this "regionalism" have greatly shaped and elevated this firm's design work and reputation", said Alan Butler AIA, Senior Principal at TLCD.
