The classroom addition at the Brock Environmental Center houses a new Environmental Science program led by Virginia Beach Public Schools. The addition learns from the Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s trail-blazing Brock Center, while providing educational space that serves as a launching point for field science in and around Pleasure House Point and the Chesapeake Bay.
New 11,500-square-foot library for the City of Norfolk.

Renovations and additions to an existing one-story library and media center at the Collegiate Middle School. Interior functions include a library, media center, collaborative work space for the students, a makerspace design and exploration area for hands-on creativity, two new classrooms, and staff support space. The Head of School coined the new flexible classrooms “the most sought-after spaces on campus.”
This 13,000 SF building was originally designed and constructed as the regional headquarters for the American Cancer Society and is a brick, glass, and metal building with offices, training facilities, a commercial kitchen, reception area, and meeting spaces. Its focal point is an open, contemporary atrium lobby wrapped in glass. The purpose of this modest space is to capture views of the densely wooded site and provide a calm, light-filled waiting area for volunteers, patients, and guests. The atrium connects a central, large open office space to waiting, conference rooms, a library, material storage, and the reception desk.
The 15,500-square-foot Powhatan County Public Library, located west of Richmond, is a 60,000-volume library and public-meeting facility completed in 2001 (photos: 2011). The new library is situated on a fifty-acre wooded site overlooking a small creek. The library design takes advantage of the outstanding landscape by “bringing the outside in.” It utilizes wood trusses, a stone fireplace, and filtered light to illuminate the major stack and reading areas of the library. The 80-foot clear-span trusses allow for unlimited flexibility and total reorganization of the space in the future. The exterior is composed of a stacked-stone foundation, vertical wood siding and insulated glass.
This design/build project for the Virginia Tech Women’s and Men’s Varsity Tennis Teams was awarded to TMA and the Hourigan Group. It includes the design and construction of a new addition of 7,304‐SF to the existing Burrows/Burleson Tennis Complex. The new addition includes a lobby, team locker rooms, coaches’ offices, team lounge, kitchenette, training and rehabilitation space, restrooms, and team support spaces (video/copy, laundry, stringing, storage). The project will also make improvements to the courts and associated site work for the new addition. Currently in fundraising.
This private residence was designed for the CEO of an international business.
It is located on a densely wooded, three-acre site and offers 220-degree panoramic views of the Lynnhaven River.
The concept was to take advantage of all of the views of the river but to reduce the focus on five specific views: one for each of the main spaces in the house.
These five major spaces were separated by radial walls, framing each distinct view.
The house was divided into two halves: a public side, for entertaining, and a private side, for family living. This was emphasized by separating the two “sides” with a continuous field stone wall that bisects the entire house. The wall extends to beyond the front of the house, acting as a welcoming plane for those entering the house.
Multiple levels allowed for the “burying” of a three car garage, to obscure its presence, and to offer a change of interior floor elevations, as one moves through the house.
Materials were selected to blend into the landscape: Natural field stone, gray brick, and glass frames colored to match the trees. The framing pattern of the glass overlooking the water was based on vertical tree trunks, with random horizontal members representing branches.
Tymoff+Moss completed the design of a new addition and complete renovation to the existing Cavalier Golf and Yacht Club in 2009.
Spaces include multiple themed dining areas; new fitness center—including state-of-the-art weight and aerobic equipment; a Pilates, yoga, and dance studio; and lounge/juice bar—member lockers, showers, and toilets; a new commercial kitchen and associated equipment; and a renovated pro shop.
Four-hundred feet long, and twenty-five feet wide, with permanent bays for 14 buses and lay-over/expansion for additional. The project site had previously been part of a large, uninterrupted city parking lot and needed to be frugal with space. The design team strove to incorporate as much vegetation into the project as possible. Greenery is woven through the spaces. This $5 million project was completed in 2015.
Winner of the HRACRE (Hampton Roads Association for Commercial Real Estate) 2016 award for Best Institutional/Public Building.
