About Us

The design and construction industries are often pitted against one another in a hostile relationship that discourages transparency, communication, and cooperation. As a consequence, the client or end-user is left with a project that may be faulty, over budget, programmatically deficient, or all of the above. In 2012, Teran K. Mitchell established TKM Architecture to provide clients with a full compliment of Architectural Design, General Contracting, and Construction services as a means to bridge the divide between the Design and Construction teams.

TKM Architecture is proud to call Mountain Home, Idaho our home. We are focused on serving the Design, General Contracting, and Construction needs of local communities and building personal and enduring relationships throughout the Intermountain West, Texas, and Virginia.

Teran K. Mitchell


Principal / Architect

Teran has deep roots in and a great love for the Intermountain West. Born in Pocatello, Idaho and raised in nearby Salt Lake City, Utah, his youth was spent in the beautiful high desert mountains of the region. Teran and his family spent many of their summers travelling throughout the western states visiting National Parks, Forests, Monuments, and the nearby cities.

It was during these travels that Teran was introduced to architecture and engineering. He noted the variations in architectural styles, typologies, and construction conventions in each region and how they respond to the natural environment and unique history of the area. During his undergraduate studies, Teran read Kenneth Frampton’s, “Towards a Critical Regionalism: Six Points of an Architecture of Resistance” that helped to form his views on the importance of an architecture of context, meaning, and the experiences had in created spaces. These influences can be found in his design work today.
