Our Values

Our Values are a reflection of the individual values of our team — creating a cohesion and alignment with the TINTO business as if it were a person, and we always look to work with clients who have similar values.


Be kind to yourself, others, and the environment.


Act openly and honestly, and with the best intentions of everyone.


Strive for genuine creativity, followed by clarity of ideas and certainty in delivery.


An open learning approach to your own and the business' growth.


Work with others as you would your family and friends, and perpetually creative new relatives.



In co-creating the future with great customers and building unique experiences for them — we've never lost sight of what first inspired us, and what ultimately led us to work together at TINTO.

Each of us has different backgrounds, career paths to date and particular interests, but we're united by the work we do for every client and our shared vision:

'Transforming your world through place and space'.

Director - The Vision Guy

I started TINTO because I saw early in my career how impactful good architecture could be and the positive impact it had on people.

Our journey to make the world a better place for all through our work is not only a purpose that is bigger than all of us, but it is what gets me out of bed in the morning. I'm never more motivated than when I'm feeling excited about a new project or enjoying the satisfaction of getting heartwarming feedback from a customer whose world has been improved through their journey with Tinto.

Technical Director - DipArch BSc(Hons), ARB, RIAS

Originally I chose Architecture because it’s a very creative profession, plus the fact that you could have something that you’ve designed realised in real life. As time progressed, I began to be intrigued by how buildings could affect the way we live, our mood and behaviour.

We spend most of our lives in buildings – through architecture you can influence the way people live their lives for the better. Architecture is a profession that is constantly evolving, whether that’s in response to social trends, environmental change, technological advances or construction techniques. There’s always something new to learn.

As Design and Delivery Lead I hope the share my experience to support talented and motivated people working hard to creating something new and exciting every day.

Senior Interior Designer

A designer is something I was always going to be. Sitting at the kitchen table, dreaming up houses, and sketching layouts is one of my early memories, I was about 10 years old and I was obsessed.

After university and working at my first practice I realised the importance of good design. For me it is about the people who occupy spaces, how they use it how it, how it effects them and how it makes them feel.

As a designer I have the opportunity and privilege to create places that make people happy.

Architectural Assistant MArch, BSc

I was lucky to fall into studying architecture naturally. As the saying goes that when you enjoy something, it does not feel like work. This is the case with my role at TINTO during the short time I have been here.

I enjoy the process of being able to visualise a design on a site and then bring this to life through 3D modelling and visuals. I also enjoy learning about and the use of advancing technologies/methods that can aid both the 3D modelling side of projects, along with how clients can see their projects come to life through a range of methods including an immersive experience.

Senior Architectural Technician

After leaving Tinto to undertake a role which saw me co-ordinating other people's work rather than hands on drafting, I came to realise how much job satisfaction I got from actually making changes to drawings, figuring out what works and what doesn't, seeing existing buildings go through a transformation and seeing new buildings being created.

The team at Tinto are forward thinking and keen to take on a challenge to suit clients’ needs and requests. When I was approached to rejoin the team, I was given the opportunity to return to doing the job I love.
