Innovative Design – Exceptional Fabrication – Easy Process
Originally founded by industrial designers Christopher Hildebrand and Hinmaton Hisler and later joined by Princeton-trained architect Damon Pearson, Tektonics Design Group was created to bring exceptional design and fabrication services to the architectural and industrial design communities.
From what started as an owner-operated partnership in a Connecticut garage, we have expanded our company into our current headquarters in the Old Manchester District of Richmond, Virginia, and into our satellite offices in Washington, DC.
We have assembled a team of fabricators, designers, and contractors to form a multidisciplinary collaborative with a passion for both exploring and realizing cutting edge design.
Our diverse backgrounds, ranging from metal working and sculpture to architecture and industrial design, provide us with a breadth of expertise to approach challenges from all angles. We see every project as an opportunity for our client's to engage our broad range of talent, just as we see our diverse client base as a way to continually invigorate our design process.
In simplest terms, we are designers and fabricators: our design is innovative because we are fabricators; our fabrication is exceptional because we are designers.
Damon Pearson, Architect
Architecture is one of the last truly generalist professions. It requires cognizance of many different factors, be they technical, political, or scientific, and comprehension of their potential effect through a built intervention. It is both the pleasure and the obligation of an architect to arbitrate these factors. Damon’s approach to architecture reinforces this view. His work looks first to those things affected by a building, be they the site, the city, or the environment, and uses them to form architecture that is contextually appropriate and catalytic.
Over the course of his career, he has shaped a breadth of different project types including private residences, public and private schools, athletic facilities, art centers, multi family housing, adaptive reuse, and urban design. Damon is a graduate from the masters of architecture program at Princeton University, and the undergraduate architecture program at the University of Virginia. He has practiced at several internationally recognized firms and regularly contributes to competitions, publications, and architecture organizations.
