Tyree Vantrease


Tyree has built his 20+ year career in architecture by continually expanding his horizons and diving into new challenges, both in his home state of Tennessee after college, and in California since 2003.  His broad experience on multiple project types has nurtured a thoughtful approach to design and a keen ear for listening to the clients he serves. Tyree has a deep appreciation for managing the details, which brings a pragmatism to his work even while in the thick of design explorations which push traditional boundaries.

A musician, outdoorsman and avid reader, Tyree brings a multi-faceted enthusiasm for problem solving to his day-to-day work with fellow team members, consultants and contractors. He incorporates sustainability into his work and has managed several LEED Certified projects. With a current focus on education projects, his easy-going personality enhances a passion for community-oriented architecture.

After college, I cycled 4,200 miles with friends from Wash U and Yale University in the Habitat for Humanity Bicycle Challenge – with no real experience!
