Tapani Talo is extraordinary in his care on seeing through projects, his creativity in achieving goals beautifully, sustainably, and within budget. He thinks of the small details, too, that make a big difference. His ideas look to the future for what the home owner or building dweller will need, as well as what they know they need and want now. He will follow the construction through to the end, not just dump a drawing on you and let you fend for yourself. He deserves the highest praise. More...

Fifteen years ago we considered moving because of multiple problems in our beautiful home. The kitchen was cramped and dark, the dining room was tight, there was no family room or space to display our pottery collection or books. Talo came up with ingenious solutions that solved all these problems and enhanced the look and our enjoyment of our home tremendously. He was present throughout the construction and worked closely with the contractor. More...

We hired Tapani to design a major renovation, completely redoing and expanding our kitchen and redoing a guest room and bathroom. We were thrilled with the results.
Tapani took charge from the start,meeting with us to understand both our wants and our needs, focusing deeply on both the aesthetics and the utility of our space. He thoughtfully listened to us and designed creatively for who we were as a family rather than offering us cookie-cutter solutions. He gave us a kitchen that is magazine-worthy, full of light and air, but that is also a wonderfully functioning kitchen for a family that likes to entertain often and large. His simple addition of a 1/2 wall turned our guest room into a great mini-suite. He was full of great ideas.
He also worked closely with our contractor to ensure that the vision and the reality matched, making sure the materials used were the best for our needs. The result is that when people walk into our kitchen their eyes get big and we hear a lot of "wows." And when friends help us cook, they marvel at all the little touches that make it work so well.
We could not be happier.

Tapani is a gifted architect with vision of both the beautiful and the practical. He designed and oversaw the transformation of our home, and provided the expertise to make it "green" as well as beautiful. We now have a super-insulated and highly energy-efficient home that is comfortable year-round with geo-thermal heating/cooling and solar (P.V.) electric panels. More...

Tapani Talo is an extraordinary architect. He worked closely with me to design exactly what I wanted and needed, with an exceptionally open and creative mind. He worked with the municipality to get the building permit, and with the contractor from the beginning till the end of the project - he did not just hand me the plan and walk away, as it seems other architects do. Every detail got his attention and guidance.

His whole design revolved around providing for sustainable, solar energy, as well as creating stunning and functional interiors. The design called for opening the dining room, kitchen and additional space into a single expanse, yet providing lovely nooks. To accomplish this, a supporting wall had to be removed, and Mr. Talo found the structural engineer to design the support beam. And he provided guidance in energy conservation with the most thorough insulation, among many other significant details.

I cannot say enough in praise of this outstanding professional.

Each case is different, and thus meeting and discussing one finds the best approach that meets clients needs and the local rules in Building department

Program + needs + budget + discussion is the basis of any project, along with meeting of minds

People. Love working with people who care about their home and surroundings. Inside and outside. That includes the views and garden or anything in between

One can only feel connected to real design if one is able to help eye to eye - mind to mind. Knowledge in arts is VERY helpful as many things are conceptual.

Passion, and trained at the beginning by the best in NY City and US. World traveller and thus understand more cultures. Photographed and painted since 1965 as well.
