Tom Wilcox is a thoughtful, creative, practical, and responsible architect that knows how buildings are built and designs that way. He values existing buildings—their design, construction, and history—and feels that it is important to bring their language into the design of additions and renovations. He also values existing land and feels that new construction should relate to and take advantage of the surroundings while having a minimal environmental impact.
A Licensed Architect since 1994, Tom is a Registered Architect in Kentucky, Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio. He is certified by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards.
Born and raised in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Tom graduated from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio with a Bachelor of Environmental Design. Since earning his Master of Architecture degree from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor in 1991, he has been living and working in Cincinnati. Tom has worked almost exclusively for small architectural firms, with a range of experience including healthcare, industrial, commercial, religious, municipal, and residential projects. In 2001, Tom started his own architectural practice, focusing on residential and small commercial projects.
Tom was a Licensed Real Estate Agent in Ohio and maintains connections with many realtors. His unique architect’s perspective provided valuable insight to homebuyers and sellers. Because of his past involvement in real estate and his experience with design and construction (including pricing), he’s the perfect person to help homeowners with a big decision many have—Move or stay and remodel?
Tom enjoys spending time with his wife and three children, exercising, and reading. He is a sports fan with a passion for college football. His service activities include volunteering for The Cincinnati Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired (CABVI) and regularly donating blood to the University of Cincinnati Hoxworth Blood Center.
