About TenBerke

We believe that architecture is never an end itself. It is a tool that turns what we have into what we need. Our projects lead to outcomes: the beneficial ways people use our spaces; how our buildings prompt agency; and how our projects connect us meaningfully to time and place, and to one another. We design projects to be the instruments of meaningful and sustainable change.

We design intentionally, with equal parts intelligence and creativity. We design boldly and are not afraid to lead our clients to dream big. For us, this means work that is not only idealistic, but also effective, navigating a nuanced path between the world as it is and the world as it might and must be. This is what gives our work its authenticity, complexity, grit, and texture, impactful at first glance and delightful over time.

Over time, we have built a wide range of projects for colleges and universities, cultural institutions, private residences, hotels, office and multifamily developments, and buildings for mission-driven clients. The firm’s most significant work includes the Distribution Headquarters for Cummins Inc. in Indianapolis, Indiana; 21c Museum Hotels across the South and Midwest of the U.S.; and the new Residential Colleges at Princeton University. TenBerke has won numerous awards, including a National Design Award from the Cooper-Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum.
