DALHOFF THOMAS design studio is about making an impact. Every project that we are commissioned with follows a rigorous design process with one simple end goal in mind:  Good design is measured by its effects on people over time. Always beginning with long-form conversation with a potential client, our goal of delivering an end-product that is second to none begins with getting to know the end-user.  The relationships with our clients are what bonds our creative minds with the passion we commit to every project. 

Bob Dalhoff and Dean Thomas began working as a collaborative team and partnership almost 40 years ago and in 1998 began what is today the largest and fastest-growing Urban Planning, Landscape Architectural, and Parks + Recreation design firm in Memphis. The personalities that both present have harbored many wonderful relationships through the years, forming bonds with some clients that span four decades.  Through Bob's expertise in community and urban planning and Dean's extensive knowledge in landscape architecture and parks + recreation, DALHOFF THOMAS design studio is anchored in a solid foundation that will last for many more decades. 

DALHOFF THOMAS design studio's current staff of seven includes Urban Planners, Landscape Architects, and LEED accredited professionals. The diverse range of backgrounds and design interests among our professional staff drive the creative, collaborative, and focused work environment that fuels good design.  In turn, each project commissioned to us receives unmatched attention from the Programming Phase to the Construction Phase.
