Concept Sketch

Todd Gordon Mather received both his Master of Architecture (1996) and a Bachelor of Architectural Studies from the University of Utah. After being selected as the Roger Bailey Traveling Fellow, Mather traveled and studied architecture throughout Italy. He serves on the Tahoe Basin Design Review Committee with past positions on the Park City Historic District Commission and on the Board of Directors for the American Institute of Architects – Northern Nevada.

Todd relocated to Lake Tahoe from Park City, Utah in 2002.  Since this time, he has worked with hundreds of clients creating unique living spaces that respond to each home owner’s needs and desires, as well as solving the interesting challenges posed by the commercial clients.  His award-winning designs in the resort mountain towns of Park City, Lake Tahoe and Truckee are reflective of his passion for excellence in architectural design.


TGMA’s approach to each project reflects his careful incorporation of well-thought and well-planned strategies for snow-design elements.  However, these projects are also designed with the consideration that dwellings must also properly respond to the arid and hot summers of mountain climates.  Success to Todd Gordon Mather Architect is in finding architectural timelessness in scale, form, and material among a gentrified architectural context and spectacular natural environments.


As a Lake Tahoe and Truckee Architect, TGMA is responsible for the coordination of structural engineers, civil engineers, interior designers, and many special consultants. Beyond the site planning and architectural design from concept through construction documentation, TGMA’s provides permit processing, construction administration, and general contractor bid coordination.


TGMA’s work spans from the outer Banks of North Carolina to Utah, northern Idaho and California. The collaborating with Wired magazine’s founder on three of their historic Park City home remodels resulted in his being published in Utah’s Home & Gardens, Park City Magazine and Utah Style & Design. Todd redesigned a highly visible Lake Tahoe office building into what some term a “daring interpretation” of the Tahoe architectural style. This work won an AIA Design Award. Mather’s design of a custom home with sweeping views of Lake Tahoe’s blue water and brilliant blue sky received the honor of cover story for Residential Design+Build magazine.

Todd’s ability to generate ideas within the context of our tastes, desires, and budget, is truly remarkable, and it was his ability to envision “ what could be” that got us excited enough to pursue the project.

I have worked with Todd Mather on several residential construction projects and he has earned my respect for both his design aesthetics and problem solving ability.
