KTUA is an award winning firm with a diverse team who likes to work hard and play hard. We have a passion for design encouraged by observing the world and sharing our travels, hosting field trips to our sites, and charretting in our office as a team. The diversity of project types and the variety of scales of our projects keep us engaged. We are constantly evolving by learning new techniques and processes. You might catch us on Halloween getting competitive in our pumpkin carving contest, or eating carne asada tacos during our parking lot summer BBQs, or in search of the most obnoxious present for our annual white elephant gift exchange during the holidays.
