Who We Are

Todd & Associates brings architecture to life with an unrelenting drive to break through the limits of what’s possible. It all begins with passionate, creative professionals with a genuine desire to understand the clients’ unique needs and contribute to their overall success. We then deliver customized solutions that integrate the disciplines of architecture, planning and landscape architecture to create a strong sense of place for each community. It’s this philosophy that has built a legacy of strong relationships with builders, clients and partners since 1981. With offices in Phoenix, Arizona, we are experienced in a diverse range of project types across the U.S., such as residential, senior living, student housing, mixed-use environments, hotels, resorts and places of worship.


The mission of Todd & Associates is to deliver creative solutions

We deliver creative solutions that spring from our passion for excellence and enduring design. Core Values: Dream Big - We believe that even the biggest dreams can come true. As innovators and designers, we take risks, we embrace change, and we work collectively toward a common goal: Excellence. Work Hard - We are firm believers in doing things the right way. And the right way involves passion, hard work and accountability. We are curious. We explore and we experiment, while always advocating for and supporting our clients through the process. Play Fair - We treat everyone the way we want to be treated: With respect, honesty, ethics and empathy. Have Fun - We believe in enjoying our work and finding a balance in our personal lives. Life is too short not to be enjoyed. Make a Difference - We have a responsibility to improve the lives not only of ourselves, but those of our community, today and for years to come.
