Mark Tanney graduated from The Ohio State University with a degree in Architecture in 1985. His interest in Streamline Modern and Art Deco architecture immediately guided him to Miami, where he gained valuable experience in space planning and building design, construction methods, and project management.


In 1991, Mark positioned himself in the Panhandle of Florida, virtually the Birthplace of the Traditional Neighborhood Development (TND) with special places like Seaside and Rosemary Beach. Working under Tom Christ, one of the first Town Architects of Seaside, he honed his skills until it was time to take matters into his own hands in the Spring of 1995.


Ten years after leaving the hallowed halls of Ohio State, Mark was applying his talent and experience in turning his clients' dreams into reality. Whether the design challenge is a custom home, a renovation project, or neighborhood planning, he leaves his clients with a product that surpasses expectations.
