Who we are.

So, what is TowerPinkster? We’re a multi-discipline architecture, engineering, and interior design firm, and we’re quite proud of our team stats: 200+ employees, 70 years in business, five office locations, eight distinct service offerings, nine unique market sectors, and one TowerPinkster team bringing you talent, enthusiasm, and curiosity! We’re that—and so much more. We absolutely love what we do, and we have fun doing it. We foster a people-first atmosphere—cultivating collaboration, mutual respect, and integrity whenever and wherever possible. We’re open and transparent with each other. We embrace humility and feedback because we know it helps our firm achieve the highest standards. We value personal fulfillment, community empowerment, and professional growth. All of this has translated to multiple firm awards, voted on by our very own employees:

  • Cool Places to Work (Crain’s Detroit Business) – 2017, 2018, 2022
  • Ranked Best Firms to Work for in the Nation (Zweig Group) – 2010, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023

What we do and why we do it.

No two days are the same at TowerPinkster, and that’s part of why we love what we do. Our architects, engineers, interior designers, landscape architects, and planners have expertise in multiple markets, meaning we get to enjoy project diversity. Our market sectors focus on experience-driven spaces. Spaces where people can live, learn, collaborate, serve, heal, and play. We identify ways for our clients to be more energy efficient while laying the groundwork for the future at the same time. We wake up every day with zest and excitement to work hand in hand with our clients—to understand their challenges and work creatively toward a solution. We brainstorm together, we give them the marker, we listen to them, and we learn from them. Then, we develop a solution. But not just any solution—our team’s design concepts surpass our client’s expectations. We sleep well knowing we have happy clients.

Nurturing curiosity since 1953.

When TowerPinkster first opened its doors, the firm was comprised of six ambitious young professionals. Since then, our firm has grown at a steady, yet impressive rate. In fact, over 40% of our workforce has been with the firm for over ten years. As we’ve grown in numbers, our service offerings also continue to expand; in 2018 we began offering structural engineering and technology design services. We know our future is bright as we continually develop and enhance our talent. Unlike many architecture, engineering, and interior design firms, TowerPinkster remains wholly employee-owned. This unique ownership structure means that we maintain a mindset of constant evolution, always aiming the firm toward growth and perpetuity. Our owners all share in the collective success and are vested in a client focus to sustain our trajectory.
