Working with Toner Architects:
Five Things You Can Expect

1. We hang our hats on partnership.

Our team never works in silos, and we know the best projects have nothing to do with ego and everything to do with understanding our clients’ needs. This approach means we don’t have (or seek) a “style”; instead, our team is inspired by the diversity of challenges and projects people bring us. We’re also fueled by every opportunity to partner – with our consultants and the construction team – to bring unique visions to life.

2. We understand and love Philadelphia.

We could go on and on (and often do) about everything we enjoy about working in the Philadelphia region. The grit, the charm, the people, and – of course – the incredibly diverse architecture. We know the industry players, and we’re experts in the local nuances of zoning, planning, and even the most complex permitting and approval processes. So, you never have to worry about what you don’t know – we’ve got you covered.

3. We keep it personal, honest and cost-effective.

We offer our clients the best of both worlds – the expertise and capabilities of a larger firm, with the personal, flexible service you want from a close partner. We aim to design spaces our clients want, including creative ideas and solutions. As part of this commitment, we’re never afraid to speak up if there’s a better, smarter, or more cost-effective way to transform your vision into reality.

4. Details that matter. Impressions that last.

We know the details in a design are the key to shaping a powerful experience as people move through, use, and enjoy the spaces we create. That’s why we give even the smallest details that extra bit of attention and weight – whether we’re designing an addition for a homeowner, the next hit restaurant or a multi-building complex. At Toner Architects, we bring dozens of details together to create not only an unforgettable first impression, but also a lasting one that enriches lives.

5. “We get sh*t done.”

We once asked our team members to articulate what makes Toner Architects unique in 10 seconds or less. One said, “I would need at least an hour,” and a moment later, another instantly said, “We get sh*t done.” In retrospect, those two answers say it all: We have diverse capabilities and the team to make things happen when unexpected surprises or obstacles arise.
