Our mission: to invent a better way of living. Founded in 1938 by two architects with a shared passion for ingenuity, diversity, and empathy, Cushing Terrell empowers creative designers to discover imaginative, responsible first-of-their-kind environments. By integrating architecture, engineering, and design, our knowledge-hungry design process opens doors for transformative thought and enhanced creativity.
We design systems and spaces that help people live their best lives, achieve their visions, and enjoy healthy, sustainable built environments. We find joy in uncovering thoughtful solutions for the people who work here, the people we work for, and the planet as a whole. Our broad range of specialized service offerings and global project locations make every day unique, and a love for exploring new frontiers is what keeps the pioneering spirit of our practice alive.
What We Do
Markets We Serve
As part of the Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Power Partnership, Cushing Terrell invests in Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) for 100% of our operational power needs — accounting for all 13 of our offices and every remote team member. We walk the walk, and thrive on opportunities to challenge convention.
A Forever DEI Journey
Cushing Terrell is committed to pursuing, achieving, and preserving a culture that embraces diversity, equity, and inclusion – within our firm, partnerships, communities, and the places we design. We are invested in expanding awareness of different lived experiences, building capacity for understanding and mutual respect, and implementing practices that uphold our commitments.
