T. Tilghman Herring, AIA
With diverse architectural experience, Tilghman brings a keen understanding of design approaches and project management requirements to each project. In south Florida, Tilghman designed and supervised a variety of luxury residential projects drawing from the contemporary Mediterranean, modern and post-modern architectural movements. Later, in Washington, D.C., Tilghman managed both government and private sector projects, including the Forrestal Buildings for the Department of Energy, working also on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, office park flex space, large-scale renovations and medical facilities. 

It is this diversity of experience that contributes to Tilghman’s creative problem-solving and understanding of construction solutions. As a result, his practice in North Carolina has brought continued variety including the renovation of Wilson’s historic vaudvillian theatre, prototypes for a low-country residential neighborhood, industrial office and flex space and numerous luxury single-family residences. 

Tilghman graduated from the School of Design at North Carolina State University and later received his Masters of Architecture from Washington University in St. Louis.
