At Traction Architecture, we believe in design for thoughtful living. Whether incorporating solar panels to harness the sun’s energy, exposing a historic building’s hundred-year-old beams, or carefully locating a window to frame a distant view, each element of our architecture is purposeful. The result is a design that tells a unique story – a story that reveals itself gradually over time through the process of inhabiting a building’s spaces.
Principals, Jody Beck and Ross-Alan Tisdale, bring a wide range of architectural experience to the practice, from high-end residences to large-scale cultural and institutional projects. Our design process is performance driven, informed by objectives that are both measurable – cost, function and energy efficiency – and immeasurable – beauty, inspiration and place making. While our projects vary considerably in scale and function, they are always rooted in our core belief in design solutions that facilitate connections to our surroundings and enhance the experience of the everyday.
