architecture & designroomTEN design creates for a world where design matters.
designing for your world
creating environments that work and spaces with stories
roomTEN design was established by two architects that wanted to create a different kind of firm: one that really listens to the client’s goals and works collaboratively with contractors and artisans to bring their vision to life. We believe that when we work with our clients in a collaborative way, great things are possible and opportunities are boundless.
In every project, roomTEN integrates a passion for creativity, functionality, environmental responsibility and technological developments. We draw inspiration from a rich history of experience. Inventive solutions require an interdisciplinary approach, and since its inception in 2008, roomTEN design has eagerly collaborated with professionals and artisans to bring multi-faceted solutions to reality.
Principal Architect Adam Wilmot, AIA
About Adam: With over twenty years of experience in the field of architecture and design, Adam guides our clients through the many technical and logistical challenges of project delivery. He has a diverse background of architectural experience that has helped to develop a deep understanding of all building and project types. It is this valued experience that turns the creative ideas of roomTEN design into reality.
Director of Design Tai Kojro-Badziak, Assoc. AIA, LEED AP, PHC
About Tai: Rooted in the belief that good space makes great lives, Tai integrates a multidisciplinary approach in her design work. Her background in art history and human development supplements her talents as a designer and brings a unique perspective to our client's design challenges. Her ability to understand and integrate a wide variety of project requirements is integral to roomTEN's design methodology. Balancing client goals with site specifics, aesthetic elements, and environmental concerns sets her apart as a talented desinger.
No project is too big or too small or too difficult for them to handle. Tai and Adam are always up for a challenge and always see things through to the end. I can't recommend them highly enough. And although many professionals are competent, it is their ability to be pleasant and make things enjoyable that makes roomTEN stand out. past client

I wanted to refresh the interiors without a lot of expense, so we opted for a new paint job, keeping all our furniture and artwork. Tai came through and within minutes knew just what I wanted, but couldn’t visualize for myself. The colors that were selected were exactly what I was hoping for. past client
I find her to have a very sophisticated eye. She makes thoughtful and often thrilling choices, and skillfully guides her clients ….
