In 1989, George Myers put up his shingle. At the time, he was working alone designing small residential projects. His talent and attentive client service soon brought new opportunities. From this modest start, GTM Architects was born.
Today, GTM is an award-winning, 50-person firm, licensed in over 20 states nationwide. In addition to its highly regarded single-family residential work, GTM is an expert in commercial interiors, retail and multifamily projects.
Mr. Myers believes the firm’s long-term success comes from the relationships he and his partners have developed over their many years in business here in Bethesda, where the firm has operated from since 2004. “Our philosophy is to treat people the way we would want to be treated,” he says. “As a result, our clients, and the people here at GTM who serve them, tend to stay with us for a long time. Work with good people and success follows.”
At GTM, designers work in collaborative studios, each led by experienced professionals on specific project types. This structure encourages collaboration among the design team, and enables the staff to cultivate the expertise required to most effectively serve clients. Regardless of project type or size, or which member of GTM’s staff is engaged, clients work with responsive, courteous and talented professionals who bring vision, creativity and passion to their work. GTM has always prioritized client wants and needs above all else.
As GTM looks forward to its next 25-30 years here in Bethesda, partner Steve Mulholland sums up GTM’s model for success. “Our business is about listening and helping our clients realize their objectives.” This is a philosophy GTM never plans to change.
